If that's the case, you may be able to get along nicely with the 
standard "minicom" utility in Linux.  Kermit might also work for 
similar purposes.  I'm sure there are scads of other 
dial-up-terminal programs available for Linux as well (I even 
understand that early on, Linus himself wrote a simple one to 
test reading and writing threads).  Minicom allows you to dial 
out to BBSes, and has oodles of settings for all the standard 
stuff (such as setting it to 300-baud, 8/n/1) as well as logging, 
and reading "scripts" from files.  Best wishes!

Hope this helps,
