Apart from setting your modem to answer incoming calls have you enabled the
port for login in /etc/ttys.

If you are on the first serial port you must change the ttyd0 line from 'off' 
to 'on' and possibly choose a different getty argument. A predefined set of 
modem interface parameters is available in /etc/gettytab.
