is this way is secured or not and can any body what may be the connection i.e.. isdn or some other mode(with out a modem) can access my application.

If your dialing into your home computer the olny way anyone can connect to it is by also dialing in. Given that they must know the phone number\ username & password and know what to do once there in i would say that your pretty secure.

You could alway configure your home PC to dial back to your work one for added security
You could also use SSL and a different username/password combo for the page. Also set the site/page up to only be accessable from your network/domain. Or perhaps tunneling the page via SSH or something like that. But as it is now, its about as secure as you can get without going crazy. SSL is pretty easy to though.
