To put it bluntly, not all modems are Hayes compatible. Especially
if the modem is answer-only or for some specialized application.

The Gandalf equipment that I'm familiar with are communications
multiplexers - it's likely (especially given the "Line Miser" name)
that what you've got there is a synchronous modem intended to connect
to a terminal multiplexer. It may even be intended for applications over
leased lines (i.e. no dial tones).
