I didn't see the full requirements in the original message so I suggested
two methods that would work for browsing using the Remote Control.

For your client, further conditions appear to make Suggestion 1 the
preferred solution.

Happy configguring.

On your suggestion #2: This defeats the purpose of not having to connect to
his ISP, instead of just connecting to the remote XP directly. Why is it
necessary to dialup to his ISP first? His reason for doing this is to have a
line of communication when his ISP is down. So if this scheme is to be
implemented, the redundancy is actually not there.  Steven Peck DNET

To elaborate on suggestion number 1.
Put a modem on the WinXP in the Cafe.
Configure DUN to receive calls.
From the clients home, dial up to the Cafe'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 Cafe's WinXP system through the Internet.
Remote control the Cafe WInXP system.
Surf through the remote controlled system.

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