How do I set up a US Robotics Faxmodem


Totally an absolute beginner with Linux. All seems like foreign language to me at the minute.

I'm trying to set up a US Robotics Faxmodem onto a Redhat Server running 7.3 . I would like to be able to dial into the system remotely for support purposes. Have managed to set up the modem using the ' mgetty' rpms off CD 3. Am able to dial out but not able to get a terminal session using Hypeterminal from Windows 2000 machine.

When I try to connect the modem won't get passed Auto answer. Do I now have to tweak settings on the Redhat box? . Use to using products like ' pcanywhere ' is there an equivilent on Linux.
