Configuring DLINK 56K Modem to HP3000 MPEiX machine

What should I do to configure a DLINK 56K modem via DTC to HP3000.

1) what is the setting needed on the DTC configuration?
2) what should be the profile characteristics?
3) Any physical setting need to be done on the modem itself? Switches? Initialisation string?

Configuring dlink 56k as an HP3000 Host Modem

FIRST, a DTC has a maximum baud rate or 19.2! So, you will not be able to run above this. The modem will work but only at the lower speed. Second, if you require higher speed access, you may want to look at a remote access server or web ramp type of device.
To configure the hp3000, use nmmgr, open config, dts,select the proper dtc/card an modify the profile for the port to have a profile that contains a baud rate of 19200 and a modem type of 1 and a behavior of 0
save this and validate. reboot the system and the dtc.

To configure the modem:
I. DIP Switches
1 down
2 up
3 down
4 up
5 up
6 down
7 up
8 down

II. Configuration/Initialization String
Using a straight through cable and a PC or dumb terminal, enter the following string into the modem.

type in: at
modem responds with:OK
type in: at&F &B1 &A3 &I3 &S1 S13=1 &W0
modem responds with: OK

III. Modem cable and Host Configuration

The pinouts for the modem cable (25 pin male on both ends) are as follows:
NOTE: This cable is **NOT** symetrical. The cable must be installed in the proper direction to work correctly.)

HOST MODEM
2 - 3
3 - 2
4 - 8
6 - 20
7 - 7
8 - 4
11 - 12
12 - 19
20 - 6
22 - 5
23 - 23

The HP Part number to order this cable pre-made is 30062B

1) No DIP switches found on the DLINK modem.
2) The initialisation string give "ERROR" instead of "OK".

No dip switches? Could you please post a URL where we can look at the manual for this modem? Also, have you considered configuring on a PC and then hooking it up to the 3000?

Another option is to get a USR modem and use the settings above.

I've found it helpful to create a REFLECTION script to do the modem config(s).
That way a) it's documented and b) it's automated.
