Windows 98 server

With Dial-up networking windows 98 can be set up as a remote access server.It will support clients running win 3.1,win95,win98 or any client running PPP.Both the dial up server and the dial up client must be running the same protocol,(IP,IPX,or Netbeui)
The win98 dial up server can act as a gateway to an IPX/SPX or Netbeui Network.The win98 server can only support one dial up client.It can not act as an IP router,or a VPN server
To install the dial up server,Go to the control panel,Add/Removeprograms.
Go to the windows set-up,Communications and check dial-up server,click ok.
enable File and printer sharing only if you plan on sharing these resources.Then configure the server for user level or share level security.
Then configure theserver type for the Dial up server.It must be the same type as the Dial up client's.if the client uses PPP select default server type.E-mail me if you need more details.

You can also share drives or folders in Windows 98 with the File & Printer Sharing for Microsoft Networks, which will turn W98 into a rudimentary file server. However, real network server services like those found inside Windows NT are not nativelyavailable in Windows 98. There are add-ons (like Personal Web Server) and third party utilities that you can install to provide additional functionality. However, keep in mind the security risks involved in using W98 as a "server". For a home network, it will probably work out for you just fine. However in a business environment, I would recommend against using 98, in favor of NT.

Good luck.
