Any ideas how I can accomplish this?
No idea, since you don't say whether you're trying to connect via getty or SLIP. Are you wanting to make an IP connection over modem using SLIP or PPP, or just get a login window on the other system??
If you just want a command-prompt/login, then the remote system has to be running mgetty on the port the modem is plugged in to, and be set to auto-answer. After that, go to minicom/cutecom on your local system, enter the AT commands to dial (atdt<phone number>), and off you go. Once it's connected, mgetty takes over, and will provide you a login prompt. Enter your ID/password.
