using Windows 2000 Server / RAS with DSL

By mark ·
This may sound like a silly question but I've never had any experience yet with this.

Is it possible to use RAS on a Windows 2000 server using DSL that they presently have for internet/email purposes?

Scenario: Currently main location running RAS with an ISDN line using an Hayes ISDN modem. Remote user calls number using a standard 56k modem and connects to RAS. then client runs a Client / Server application.
What they would like is to have DSL on server side and DSL on remote side and run the Client / Server application like normal.

Any Clues?

Thanks,

with dsl on both sides you would want to run vpn sessions to encrypt the traffic between server and client. If you get dsl do not get the one where you have to dial up to start the connection. Business Dsl should come with the standard cisco 675 router, always on type, but you would want some type of proxy/firewall that would allow pptp/ipsec/some vpn client through. Don't hook a business server directly to the internet with out some sort of security in mind.

Hope this helps.

One of the ways that I think you would be able to accomplish this is through terminal services. There is a great article on how you can connect to four different servers through this method.
