Dial up

By NewComputerAdmin ·
What is the safest and best way to dial up into a network with a windows 2000 server, the machine dialing in would be using pc anywhere and be a 95/98 and be able to see programs that apparently are not supported by terminal services. Or maybe it is pc anywhere that is not supported by terminal services. The user would be dialing into get his outlook email, which he would read and keep on the computer he dials into, he would also get into a program called timeslips and possibly other office 2000 applications and word perfect. The computers dialed into do not have modems, this would be a contact over a modem into the server itself, since a gateway does not seem to be able to deal with this problem either. Thanks.

I don't think this is possible with PCanywhere. You would need to use Terminal Services to do what you want. I would suggest creating a roaming profile for this user and then storing his/her outlook emails on the server. Then create a remote access account for him/her. Then he/she would be able to logon to the server with his/her profiles.

If all the user need to do is to check emails. If you have exchange2000, the user can access his/her emails using web browser. This is much more easier and less security problems.

This doesn't solve our problem, but I appreciate the response. We do not have exchange and apparently the other applications that we need to run via dial up are not supported by terminal services. Thank you anyway.

I have a similar situation. What we did was to dial directly in the client running W98 with pcanywhere. This works very well. I would not try pcanywhere dial in to the server. We get into the network thru the w98 client. We use pcanywhere "call back" for security. Modems are cheap. I would put a modem on your client. Forget about going in thru the server. It didn't work for us and we hire 5 MCSEs to try to solve this and no one could make it work very well.
Good Luck.

Apparently, there is not much out there to work with. I will have to try another approach.
