Making a Dialup-Server
Hi. I stumbled across the fact that "Remote-Access" isn't simply a replacement for the old PPP control panel, but allows "Remote-Access." (okay, it seems obvious; I only hadn't thought about it). Anyway, using Remote-Access and *what* software (or settings) would allow my cable-connected iMac to serve as an *internet* dialup server to my PowerBook while on the road? Thanks!

Remote Access is only a remote access client for ARA or PPP. You must purchase ARA Personal Server or in order to act as an remote access server. I believe there are other tools for this purpose. Can someone name anymore?

I realize that remote-access isn't a full fledged server, but it *does* allow dial-in access to a computer and its network connections., i.e., any AppleTalk services. I've exhausted the Mac Help, and the dial-in access is great as is... but still, it would be nice to know some software that would serve or relay web connections, since the cable modem is on the same network as the printer, iMac, and old 6400.

Actually, this dialup access to the existing network is a *great* feature, and even if I can't figure out how to serve web pages, I strongly suggest any mobile users may want to check out remote-access a little bit closer!

Anyway, thanks!
