After the old modem got fried, a new one was installed (Zoom V.92 external).
The modem responds, inits and dials with minicom, but a chat script fails, as the modem never replies to chat. Using chat -v, the log basically shows

send ATZ
expect OK
alarm
failed

Anyone have any ideas?

This is on a RedHat 7.2 box.

I've done that. ppp-up does not work. It runs the chat script and logs a chat script error. That's why I'm trying to break it down and see where the failure is.
Since all ppp-up does is invoke pppd with a connect option, which in turns spawns chat, I'm skipping the pppd process and running chat directly from the shell, with identical command line options to trace the error. Doing that gives me the 'alarm' and 'failure' messages in /var/log/messages, and I can watch the modem front panel and see that nothing happens. But minicom works fine.
