Are you able to get on the internet using that connection (without dialing out 
to your ISP)?

Chris, performance or speed is not an issue we are concerned with right now.
When you connect to the RAS server are you able to connect to the internet
through the RAS server without taking control of the RAS server? Or does
this setup just allow you to access a shared folder remotely located in the
RAS server?

although I could dial an isp, but I didn't think I would gain any
performance then.

Maybe this is not completely useless depending. When you connect to your
work computer, do you have to connect to your ISP first before you dial out
to your work computer?

I did misunderstand...sorry...but this is to connect to my xp pro machine @

machine @ work after I dial up via remote desktop connection to browse the
web just for the performance increase( work has a t1 and we only have dial
up in our tiny little town and I have no line of sight to get a wireless
connection :( ). My apology if that was useless info for you.

Bear with me Chris. Aren't you just describing a way to remotely access the
server? I am not interested in accessing the server. I just want the server
to share its internet connection remotely.

All you should need to do is go to system properties and click on the remote
option, and under remote desktop allow users to connect to this computer. I
have the XP firewall turned off and allow our firwall to handle security.
There should not be anything more to it. The only issue with XP pro is it
only allows one connection @ a time. At least, that is the only
functionality I have been able to get it to work so far. HTH

I have this question posted in my group that I can't satisfactorily address.
Maybe the gurus in this group could add some suggestions. Someone asked me
if it's possible to connect to one of his computer in his internet cafe not
to access the computer remotely and not for the speed but to take advantage
of it's internet connection (unlimited DSL). So effectively the remote
computer would become an ISP of sorts albeit with just one client. I told
him it is possible coz someone told me a while back that XP has a built-in
way to do this. I told him to setup an account with the remote server for
the client computer. But as to how to set up the remote server, I don't
exactly know how to go about it. Anyone has any ideas? Was I wrong to
suggest that this is possible?
