It's mgetty. You need to update your inittab to run mgetty on boot ( or
when edited just run a : init q :) reread init tab ;) and that's all )
Setup up to listen /dev/ttySx ( x=0,1, => com1, com2 in dos ). More
Debian almost configured to handle incoming calls ;) just update inittab :)
And it will start automatically pppd ;) That's all.
also look at /usr/doc/pppd
there are some samples.
