Windows does not come with a command prompt util for dialing phone devices out of the box. Although Linux and other OS's allow PPP connections to be initiated from the CLI, Windows does not have this functionality.

Instead you will have to install some software, which will allow your DOS prompt to access the modem. Although this is "third party" it is not a GUI "click here to dial". It will provide you with the DOS commands to use the modem:

This is a very small app (> 100K) and is scriptable from the DOS prompt.
