share modem on NT server

By 1i1m01e ·
We have a 20 user network with an NT 4.0 server. I want to share the modem on the server with one department. I would like to do the following: allow any computer in that department to connect through the LAN to the modem on the server to dial-out to a specific site (not the Internet). Can this be done? If so, with which software?

Thank you.

share modem on NT server

It looks like you could set up a Demand Dial interface using RRAS for WinNT.
Not the normal RAS that comes with NT, the updated version, RRAS.
Here is a Technet article on thishttp://www.microsoft.com/technet/prodtechnol/winntas/proddocs/rras40/rrasch01.asp
(please remove any spaces)

And here is the URL to get RRAS for NT:
http://www.microsoft.com/ntserver/nts/downloads/winfeatures/rras/rrasdown.asp

hope this helps

After exhaustive searching and hours of frustration, I found very few third-party applications that allow modem-sharing from the NT Server. Intriguingly, Microsoft's own Small Business Server comes with a Modem-sharing client, but it is not available on its own.

Spartacom, however, is the one software developer that has been in the business for awhile and has a couple products for modem-sharing that would suit your needs. There are no less-expensive software alternatives to the Spartacom products, at the moment.

It really is unfortunate that there aren't many options available anymore. Perhaps some of the other products that might have been available have all been migrated to "Internet-sharing" programs.

I'm familiar with spartacom. I was looking for other products that also do modem sharing.
