If I understand you question correctly, your server calls you back when
accessed. Supposing, furthermore, that both you and the server are NT
machines running version 4 all you have to do is to go into your
accessories group, click on dial-up networking, where you have the phone
book entry for your server there is a button with "more" written on it,
click it and choose the "user preferences" command. One of the folders is
called "call back" and that is what you are looking for.
Hope this helped.

[Alas, it's not that simple. The server is not NT. What I have to do in NT
Workstation is
(1) send modem commands, esp. to tell it to answer the next call;
(2) dial-up and log in, giving userid, password, and my call-back number;
(3) after the disconnect, wait for the call;
(4) answer, giving another userid, a CR after 5 seconds, then the command
to enable ppp communications, followed by an ESC.
(5) when I'm finished and disconnect, send a modem command to tell the
modem NOT to answer any subsequent calls.
What I'd really like is a ready-made script.... --WM]
