I think what was meant was "TR?? as in Transmit Received??".  8-).

The modem won't necessarily respond if DTR is not also asserted.

Since DTR is asserted by opening the port if you are using the cua
device, most likely, the port had enabled CTS/RTS and is not asserting
CTS.

Since you are using iijppp, I know that CTS/RTS is enabled on the
port.  The question is, is your modem new enough to handle it correctly,
and is your cable good?
