Either setup a SLIP or a PPP link, or if that is unfeasible, get "term",
a user-mode point-to-point package-oriented communication program.  It can
be found somewhere in the pub/OS/Linux hierarchy on, the
name ought to be term112.tar.gz or similar.  Compile it on both systems,
set up a term connection as per the documentation, and then as root at home:

tredir 871

And just sup away...

Actually, if you don't have root access at your net-connection, term is
very nice, supporting multiple concurrent sessions.  With a special port
of ncftp, you can ftp from any host without intermediate storage on
your dialled-up system.
