How can i make the Android mobile phone number +3900000 as incoming dialing number from computer running Linux (ArchLinux, Fedora, CentOS, Ubuntu) using modem. Once the connection is made. How is it possible to send / receive packets from mobile to that local network or use SSH/FTP in that location?

Just a device for remote assistance services (like to avoid VPN/ETC ETC).

Do you really want to establish a dial-up service on your Android device -- or would a solution which starts the appropriate service on an incoming call suffice (that is, provided the computers themselves already have a network connection -- though in that case, all traffic would be routed via "open internet", but you could use secure protocols such as SSH)? – Izzy Dec 29 '12 at 14:53
@Izzy: dial up service like from another PC using modem dial in to the mobile number. Once connected/connection established. Then browse that LAN for remote assistence maintainence. – YumYumYum Dec 29 '12 at 18:36
I see. So it's about "emulating a VPN". Never heard of a working solution for this, so I'm out. Good luck, though -- but I'm afraid there is no such thing available. – Izzy Dec 29 '12 at 18:44
