1. If I have a modem connected to a phone line, is it possible to let my friend dial from his pc my telephone number and then let FreeBSD answer the call, and authenticate him by some sort of a login prompt?
That would be pretty much what a lot of ISP's do, wouldn't it? IIRC, there's a section of the PPP chapter in the FBSD Handbook that mentions, perhaps explains well, this item. I've not yet tried it, YMMV.
It's not necessary to use PPP for this, good old serial dialup connections will provide a shell login. It's in Handbook section 20.4.
