I assume you are talking about a dial-in server. I found an article which is Debian orientated here but there are others around. The basic is to get mgetty functional.

You'll need to load the ppp-compress module or build it into the kernel.
It's telling you that it has no permissions on 132.22.1.26 ( wht not use private ranges?) i.e. you'll have to register peer I think in /etc/resolv.conf . You may also have to configure /etc/hosts.allow.

Could you clarify the address 132.22.1.26 as it is very unusual for a personal network?

Can you clarify exactly what you have done? The basis of mgetty is that system that is dailing in should logon with specific name and password. After that the outside system needs to have specific permissions to access files etc on the host system. You need to clarify in your own mind what you want to do.
