OS X equivalent of Apple Remote Access? - Mac Networking

Years ago I used to dial into my Mac at work using Apple Remote Access. It would answer the call and phone me back so that the company would pick up the phone bill. I have not been able to find something that would do the same under OS X. Anyone? It's got to be a dial up connection since a new firewall has just been installed and thanks to NAT the work Mac no longer has a public IP address.

    Look in System Preferences -> Network. Just set up your PPP connection
    info there. I *think* that it's possible these days to do AppleTalk
    over a PPP connection, though I admit it's been a long time since I've
    done that sort of thing.

    How do you configure PPP under OS X to call back?

    I may be wrong but I always thought this is how to dial into a remote
    host (an ISP for example) via a modem. Are you saying it is possible in
    Network system preferences to set up a Mac so that it listens to
    incoming PPP connections? That would be great although it would be even
    better if the host would phone me back (like ARA does).
