 Setting Up a Linux-based PPP Callback Server

Linux Gazette tells us how to make a Linux PPP Callback Server.

"The principle behind a callback server may be summarized as follows. First I (the client) dial the telephone number of my callback server's modem. The modem on the server is configured to accept incoming connections. Once the connection is established, the server prompts me back with a welcome message and a login prompt. I login as a special callback user. The modem on the server drops the connection and dials back a specified number attached to my client machine. The modem on my client machine is kept ready to accept the callback connection, and once the connection is established I am again prompted with a login prompt. Now I log in as a normal PPP user and the connection is completed."
