Configuring NT Workstation as a RAS serv

By rslewis ·
I am having problems configuring my desktop PC to act as a dial up server using RAS to connect my laptop to my home office.

All my dial out connections seem to be ok and I have configured the port for dial in and out but when I try to connect the desktop PC does not pick up the call.

Help!!

NOTE 2: If the files are located somewhere other than the CD-ROM, click 'Browse' to locate them.
5) Click 'OK'. (The 'Add RAS Device'dialog box appears.)
'Add RAS Device' dialog box
6) Select the port that will be used for remote access from the 'RAS Capable Devices' drop-down list box.
