i have a laptop running win nt 4.0 and i would like to dial in to the network to get my e-mail and some resources. do i need to configure RAS connection & modem on the server side or configure only the laptop to connect to the server using modem andtcp/ip static address or DHCP?

#1 are you the server admin ? if not you will not configure it. get as much as you can for your admin on settings
you will need to install ras but follow #4 and you will be prompted to do so
#2 ask your admin for a login if you aren't logging intothat server
#3 use dhcp if possible
#4 when installing your modem,( if new or not installed yet ), first go to your properties of the network icon and delete all protocols cards and services and reboot.
you may or may not have to manually install a loopback adapter.
#5 do you have the lastest service pack for nt
#6 install the client for the connecting server only to start (novell or microsoft, other ?)
this is not complete for every situation
due to differing modem types internal,pcmcia,
external

hopefully this will go smooth

Typically when you dial-up you will need a dial in user ID and password. More than 95% of dial-ins will be DHCP and you must configure your dial-up to use the proper protocol. (Typically TCPIP)

The problem was the a conflict with com port. the IBM think pad serial port was enabled & used the same com port as the dial up com port. i solved the problem. thanks for trying to help me.
