modem problem

I have installed Redhat linux 8.0
every thing seems to be fine but the modem does'nt work.
I have connected the modem with com3 which would be ttys2
in Linux.
BUt in the advanced tab,in network setting windows, it shows that the modem port is modem0 and there is no other option in modem port.

Well anyone show me to setup modem in cosole. cause im relatively new to linux.and i mostly use GUI.
