Connecting a dial-up modem to the AUX Port of a Cisco 2821 Router for Dialin Connectivity

One of my branch offices has a 2821 router that I would like to connect a modem to for dial-in connectivity in case of an emergency.  This branch office is about 2500 miles away from the office I work at, which is why I need this emergency access.  Once I connect the modem to the AUX port on the router, is there any configuration I need on the router?  If not, should I just use HyperTerminal or TeraTerm to dial into it?  Thanks.
