Hello Ramakishore,
I assume you mean that your modem is connected
to the wall jack via rj11 cable, and that your modem
is not dialed into an internet provider when you want
to make a person to person phone call:
Have you tried windows'  dialer.exe?
I read some blogs that say it can even play
a ring tone when someone calls in.
Of course, I assume your computer has a decent
sound card/modem.
Unfortunately, I have not come across a similar Unix utility.
Maybe it exists, but I have not seen one.
