problem using minicom

I use Red Hat 6.2.
Just bought a "Trust" external modem.
Have trouble when connecting: I've read on www.linux.com
that I can use minicom to dial up.
After dialling the number, minicom reports that I'm connected.
I get this text:
CVX Access switch
Access is restricted to authorized users only
I type the username and password that I got from the ISP.
Then I get:
Valid commands are:
quit: hang up and disconnect
help: list valid commands
So, it seems that I can't do anything except quit.
Of course I called the ISP, and they had no idea what was
going on. Of course, they "don't support Linux even though it will work".
Does anyone have an idea what's going on ?
Thanks alot in advance !
