Windows 98 - RAS, proper configuration?

By dmrome ·
Does anyone know how to properly configure Remote Access Server on Windows 98se using the Dial-Up Server Remote access feature ... using TCP/IP ... all I have been able to do is to get it to answer sometimes, then if you get in (using the password Ihave setup), you can't see any of the network resources ... just want to be able to login to the Win 98 peer-to-peer network to get a file or two I left at the office or that I need to upload for someone to use ?

Thanks, Dennis

First order is to verify the setup at the Office computer. Since you can connect, I assume you have the phone line and number setup done. Now the office computer needs to have static or entered IP address in TCP/IP properties under Network Properties. This must be setup for TCP/IP-->Dial-up Adapter.

Now you Dial-up setup at the home (or mobile) PC must be configured with it's own IP address (right click Dial-up entry/Properties/Server Types/TCP/IP settings). Now in Network Properties, selectIdentification tab, make sure the entries here exactly match your office workgroup name. Make sure you have "Client for MS Networks" installed. Set the "Primary Network Logo" to "Client for MS Networks". You have to keep in mind that all the modem is doing is taking the place of the network card. All other things must be done the same because once the modem hooks up, it's just like you were at the office.

(continuing)
Anyway, the user name and password you use for the Dial-up connection must have been given share permissions, but that's not that important. The goal is to sort your Network Properties til you are able to see the other computers on thenetwork. After that, you can then worry about getting access to the resources you want.
Always remember, the modem is there doing the job of the network card. It's just slower. Usually you'll find solutions by looking at the actually network setup in Network Properties. If the modem is connecting then look at you Net.Prop. to verify that all is consistant with the Office machine. You're just using TCP/IP-->Dial-up Adapter instead of TCP/IP-->"Network Card".
Hope this points you in the right direction. It is a lengthy process to get all aspects setup correctly.

Quick note:
If your Office workgroup is using the NetBEUI protocol, you'll have to Add that protocol to your Dial-up Adaper in Network Properties.

Another option might be to purchase Symantec's PC Anywhere, a very easy-to-install and configure low-cost product that will allow for file transfers and remote control of your office computer. This will also save you the headache of trying to get Win98 to act like a server. Just a thought...
