Can this machine hit the internet. If so you might want to install openssh and use that instead. SSH is pretty secure and works really well.

for centOS you would just need to type in
yum install ssh
However if you still need the dialin then here is a great article http://http://www.enterprisenetworki...le.php/2238531
