Help buidling Dial-in Server
« on: July 20, 2005, 02:04:13 PM »

I need some ones help in doing this?
I'm a pls excuse my ignorance.

I'm planning of putting up a dial-in server at our main office. Our purpose for this is to make available downloading of data and uploading files to main office. Branches will connect from windows machine to our main office fc3 test3 with Apache/2.0.52 (Unix) mod_ssl/2.0.52 OpenSSL/0.9.6b PHP/5.0.3 mod_perl/1.99_19 Perl/v5.8.0 and DFM-560E External Fax Voice Modem.

I had spent a lot of time looking online manuals, googling and finally configured dialin server in this manner.

opened /etc/mgetty/login.config and changed to /AutoPPP/ - - /usr/sbin/pppd file /etc/ppp/options.server.

Added this in inittab S1:2345:respawn:/sbin/mgetty ttyS1 /dev/ttyS1

Configured etc/ppp/options.server
asyncmap 0

Added username & password in /etc/ppp/pap-secrets
ppp * ppp *

Then I tried from windows it was able to get connected to server(main office) But unlucky to open web-site.

I have tested the website internally on the machine with and it is successful. Added in /etc/hosts file.

I need to know what more must be configured and have to be done so once I am connected to server I am able to open the site from windows 98 machine situated at other location.

I'm at wits end and sure appreciate some helps from gurus out there.
