ISDN Connectivity

By anomalygold ·
We are trying to establish a connection between two offices. Each office connects using an ISDN line. One office is running NT 4.0 Server (SP6a) and the other is running a peer to peer network using Win 95. I need to connect the peer network to the server for file transmission and to run an application from the server. What is the best way to connect these systems?

Create an account for the user(s) from the
peer to peer network on the NT network with rights to what they need to access. In RAS allow the user(s) dial up access. Use ppp to set up a VPN between the two networks to make it more secure.

This information is sketchy but it might help the cause!

Get two ISDN modems (like the 3Com OfficeConnect units) and set them up to call each other as needed (I have read reviews that say the setup wizards are very easy now). It sounds like the Win95 network would be calling the NT Server network.

Setup RAS on the NT Server and Win95 clients. RAS will remember connections by default so once you connect to things (or run them) remotely it will rember for next time.

Because the 3Com ISDNmodems have a 10Base-T port(s) built in they plug into the network hus (or switches) easy enough. TCP/IP everywhere will keep it all straight and you can use NT security to keep it safe.

I hope this gets you thinking, good luck with your project!
