Connecting Remote Users

By johnnow ·
1. NT 4.0 with RAS - 5 Modems handing out IP addresses from a static pool. We are our own ISP. Remote users connect to the internet through the RAS.
2. NT 4.0 resolving WINS and DNS.
3. NT 4.0 Terminal Server with network printerssetup for each user.
4. NT 4.0 running SNA connecting AS/400 and IBM Mainframe
5. NT 4.0 RRAS/VPN

USERS - Current
1. Remote users dial-in to RAS and are validated to use the entire network.

1. More than one remote user needs to connect from a client site with only one phone line. The solution needs to use the 3Com Office Connect 56k Lan Modem and allow the user to print to his printer from Terminal Server. Each connected user must have full use of the network.

Each server must have knowledge of the remote user.

Need additional info e-mail.

Connecting Remote Users

by mcessna In reply to Connecting Remote Users

I tried this with almost the same set up you mention and I couldn't get it to work correctly. It should work but I couldn't get it to. Here is what I tried.
Turned of NAT and DHCP on the 3com Hub.
Disabled Netbios filter on hub.
Set modem to continuous connection.
Static IP Addressed three workstations, used valid IP addresses for lan.
Added LMhosts flie for domain controller
ie. %server% #PRE #DOM:%domain%
Set up all mail clients to point to Exchange server, Wins, DNS servers etc.
This worked fine for two of the stations but not the station that originated the connection through the lan modem. Not sure why but maybe you can see something that I missed.
By the way I endes up just using the win9x internetconnection sharing for these machines. They are long since gone ffrom this job.

Try letting the Office Connect device specify it's own IP-Address.

Good Luck.....Jeremy
