If you're trying to ssh to another machine, I suggest you fire up a terminal and enter the magic string:
ssh <ip of the computer you want to reach>
for ssh from windows, you'll need putty

First you need to make the connection (modem, NIC etc), then run ssh as iceman47 suggests. Hard to write about details without reading more about your configuration (how would you like to connect? using ISP?)

Specifically. i want to do a remote loigin another Linux or UNIX machine using their modem. I service a database on several SCO boxes and have always used the "cu -9600 -l tty1A dir" command to dial out in text mode. What would the equivalence of this command be in Linux?
