NT Internet Access

By mike.peck ·
I am a relatively new NT Server user. I have a modem connected to a standard phone line on my BDC with RAS installed. I would like to allow a network workstation to connect to the Internet through the modem in the BDC. How can I do this?
ThanksMike Peck

You must configure RAS to allow incoming connections and to answer the phone. In the user manager for Domains, double click on the user, then click on dialin, select "Grant dial in permission to user" and set it to allow/deny callback. If you are going to use call back, if you do not specify the phone number to call, the remote user will be able to put it in. OK out of everything and you should be set

If you are asking how to allow another workstation to use the modem, you require additional software for modem sharing, such as SpartaCom. If you want a remote user to dial-in and use network resources, including Internet access, the Answer 1 is right.

If however, the BDC (using the modem) is the Internet connection and you want workstations to share that connection, look into either MS Proxy or a Firewall to run on your BDC.

The only version of NT Server that has built-in support for modem-sharing is Small Business Server. Otherwise, you need a third-party product to share the modem.

Using the same line for outbound Internet access and inbound RAS can be a problem and I would separate the two functions if possible.

The other option you might consider is either Proxy Server for the Internet connection or setting up a Win98SE or Win2000 Pro workstation and using Internet Connection Sharing.
