A. NT Workstation supports one inbound RAS connection so one NT station will be the RAS server, and one will be the client. The procedure below is what I did to connect two machines.
If RAS is already installed
- Goto Control Panel, and double click Network
- Goto Services and click on “Remote Access Server”, and click Properties
- Click on the Port and click Configure
- Select “Dial Out and Receive” or just Receive
- Click Continue
- Select if user can access Just Computer or Entire Network for NetBEUI
- Click Continue and fill in details for TCP/IP, For this setup we will assume the dial in client will have a TCP/IP address so check the box “Allow clients to use preconfigured address”
- Click OK and then close
- You will then be prompted to restart the computer
If RAS is not already installed, goto “My Computer” and double click “Dial-up Networking”, it will then detect your modem and then take you to step 3 as above.
This assumes RAS is not installed
- Goto “My Computer”, and double click “Dial-up Network”
- You will be asked for the NT CD, and it will install Modem and RAS
- It will then detect any modems, once the modem has been found click continue
- It will then say the phone book is empty and you should add an entry. Give a name and select “Next” (do not select “I know about modem properties” unless you do”)
- Select “I am calling the Internet” and click Next
- Enter the phone number and click Next, then click Finish
- Select the entry, and click More, select Edit Entry
- Goto server Tab, and check NetBEUI and TCP/IP. Click TCP/IP details and fill in then press OK. Finally click OK again.
- Select the PhoneBook entry and click Dial.
- The first time you connect you will have to supply a username, password and domain (select “save password” so this information does not have to be entered again).
