I know that mgetty+sendfax does not support the Class 1 fax device. Only Class 2 and
2.0 are supported.  Regarding efax, I do not know.

I have been told that Class 1 is probably not generally supported in Linux and maybe
difficult to do.  I first ran into this issue with one of my desktop modems which
turned out to be a Class 1 only device.
