Please increase your Points next time!!

There is no need to add or buy any shareware software to linux, linux already got ppp and slip support for as terminal/dial-in server. Please refer to Linux-HOWTO-PPP for setting up termial server.
Following is a example set up:
Add "s1:45:respawn:/sbin/mgetty -s 38400 ttyS0" to your /etc/inittab, and a ppp start script if you want to use ppp.
"#!/bin/csh
exec /usr/sbin/pppd 38400 pasive netmask 255.255.255.0 localip:remoteip "
where localip is ip address assign to your serial port on server and remoteip is ip assign to your remote machine.

You don't get it. I don't want a dial up program I want a dailup sever that can host a network over the phone  lines.

No laeuchli, you are the one who doesnt get it, raymans respones does exactly that. It will allow you to handle incoming ppp calls. Now, for the odd chance that this is some kind off linguistiq problem, and what you really are after is a way to connect an entire local lan to a remote service (such as the internet) via a single Dialup connection, i would suggest that you go to www.linuxnow.com and search the docs and howto section for "masquerading" and you will find a great text on the subject. You do no tneed ANY software more then what is already included in your system.

You want to call a server which has sharware programs to linux??
Answer, Linux is NOT shareware and has therefor NO shareware programs. Linnux and it's applications is FREEWARE.

You want to call a friends computer and connect the two computers in a simple point-to-point network?
Answer, Use pppd or dip.

Linux is a UNIX-clone which not has network-support as a add-on but as a bouil-in function.

Well the thing to do is:
setup your getty to answer incoming calls (read the man)
[/etc/inittab]
S1:234:respawn:/sbin/getty ttySX F38400 ansi
[end]
[/etc/passwd]
user:pass:500:500:LinuxUser:/tmp:/etc/ppp/ppp-dialin
                                 ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^shell script to launch ppp
[end]
[/etc/ppp/ppp-dialin]
/usr/sbin/pppd 38400 pasive netmask 255.255.255.0 pppsrvip:userip
[end]

Good luck...

If I get you right, you'll need pppd version 2.3.3 (I think it's the newest). Since 2.3.2 it will work as dialup server if you use the options "dialup" and "defaultroute". The only problem is the IP address, which has uo be fixed during your dialup. But nevertheless you can use also the options "accept_local_ip" and "accept_remote_ip". I don't know if the last 2 options are spelled correctly, but I don't have them in mind.

Good luck!
