QNX AmigaXL what about modems!?!??!
« on: December 16, 2002, 03:41:27 AM »
 OooooK. I had a Winmodem, and of course QNX would not make use of it, so I picked up a USR V.92 Fax Win NT or something like that, and QNX did not see it either, so can someone please tell me if infact QNX supports any modems at all!?!?!?

While I can't find your modem in the list of supported hardware, I suggest you have a good look at the chip on the card and see if you can find something else in that list that uses the same chip.
Most of the QNX drivers (xxx.so) are written for a particular chipset, not a manufacturer. But then, how many internal modems are real hardware modems and not just secret-API Windows-only hardware?

 ya, that is the thing, I don't see ANY modems in that list, I looked under Network, and they only listed network cards, or am I overlooking something?

Chances are, if the word "Win" is in the product name, you lose.

I had to dust off my old SupraFax 14.4 modem which
worked as fast as expected.  Now if I could coax QNX into using my USB cable modem, but have not been successful so far. :hammer:

I use an external modem, a Zoom 56k Faxmodem, and it wouldn't work at all with QNX until I patched phdialer.

If Dialer is saying "initializing modem" quickly followed by "connection failed," then you may need to patch /usr/photon/bin/phdialer.

What's happening is that before sending the modem initialization string and the phone number to dial, phdialer sends an "ATZ" command.  The problem is that some modems do a complete reset when they get ATZ and discard everything else that followed it.

To fix phdialer, using a hex editor, change 41 54 5A 00 to read 41 54 00 00.

 Thankx for the tip, I'll try that, but does QNX come with a Hex ED? Where can I get QNX apps anyhow, there are only a few demos on there page and that is that, least that I have saw. :/

Yes, QNX has an editor called spatch that works fine, or you can start AmigaXL and use your favorite Amiga hex/binary file editor.  In either case, I think you'll need to log in to QNX as root to do the job.

There is some QNX software at this URL:
