To elaborate on suggestion number 1.
Put a modem on the WinXP in the Caf=E9.
Configure DUN to receive calls
From the clients home, dial up to the Caf=E9's WinXP modem line =
directly.
Surf or remote control the WinXP box and surf from there.
 -this avoids dialing up the ISP.


For suggestion number 2.
This would require the client to dial to the ISP,
Connect to the Caf=E9 WinXP system through the Internet
Remote control the Caf=E9 WInXP system.
Surf through the remote controlled system.

This would require a careful evualation of the security configuration =
on the
Caf=E9 WinXP system as any exposure to the Internet is a posible venue =
of
attack.

The XP Pro has both a NIC and a modem. The client computer has a modem =
also.

You suggested to dial up to the ISP? Which computer should do that? The
client trying to connect or the XP Pro host? If it is the client, then =
this
defeats the purpose of connecting to the internet via the XP Pro host. =
We
want to use the XP Pro host's internet connection and it doesnt matter =
how
slow this connection is. We have a clear purpose for this which need =
not
concern anyone right now. Your second suggestion, does that just =
connect the
client to the host or does the host also provide internet connectivity =
as a
result? =20

Two possible answers;
1. Put a modem on the XP system, configure RAS dial directly, remote =
control
and go. 2. Dial up your local ISP. Configure the WinXP for remote =
desktop,
SECURE, open=20
Open the correct port in your firewall (1494 IIRC).
Use Windows Remote Desktop through the Internet.

Theoretically this should work, haven't done it.
