How do you setup a laptop (win9x) to dial up to ISP and do tunneling to the corporate network (RAS-NT server)?

The first thing you need to do is go to Microsofts site and download the DUN (Dial-Up Networking) update for VPN's. This adds the VPN client and PPTP protocol to DUN. Once installed, you will create a second DUN connection using the VPN adapter. The VPN adapter will require an IP address to the server you are trying to connect to. Assuming that you have already created the DUN adapter for the modem to contact an ISP, you connect to the ISP then double-click on the VPN adapter and voila'... you're in... if everything is properly configured on the server side :-D

If you're using Windows 98, open Add/Remove Programs, Window Setup tab, Communications and install Virtual Private Neworking. You'll then need to open Network Properties and make sure TCP/IP is bound to it.
Then create a Dial-up connection to your server, but instead of a phone number you will use the IP address of the Server. It would be best to put a shortcut to both of these on the desktop or in the Quick Lauch toolbar. Now, click the ISP dial-up to connect. Once connected click on the VPN connection you created to connect to the server IP address.

In addition to the previous, you still need to grant Dial-in permissions for the user via User Manager for Domains ;-)
