Need to dial in to my debian box

I am wanting to set up my debian box to listen to a hayes compatible modem and wait for an incoming call to answer and let me log into it. When trying to find this on google, all I can find is dial out to an ISP, not setting it up to listen and pick up so I can get into it and log in via command line.

Can someone walk me through this, on what I would need to install and how to configure the stuff I do install, so I can remotely log in to my debian box from over a modem.

I know its not too secure but I was wanting to dial in using hyperterminal on a windows machine, thorugh a modem over some phone lines to my Debian box, through a modem and be able to log in to my debian box on the windows machine using Hyperterminal's command interface.
