Dialup is accomplished through the pon and poff commands in Debian - in the special case of an analog connection. Digitally connections (ISDN) work different.

The syntax is as follows:

The details for a given provider (telephone number, modem, etc.) are configured using the pppconfig command.

Note: Your modem must be properly set up before you can use it for dialup. You may need to configure your kernel and/or the serial port connected to the modem.

pon and poff also control PPPoE links, which instead of dialing through a modem tend to either be carried over Cable or DSL (which happens to use the phoneline, but lets normal voice/modem signals by unmolested). This is often carried into your computer through Ethernet.
