Connecting to dialup remote PC not on Internet

Hi,

I wanted to set up remote access to a WinXP Home PC with a 56k modem
connected to a phone jack, but with no connection to the Internet.

It would allow remote entry of data on the PC at times where nobody is at
the PC.

I know this is old-fashioned, and maybe it's too simple, but I dont' know
the answer.

Why would we want to do it this way? This is for a small nonprofit
organization, where we don't want to tie up the phone line all night or have
to have someone there to connect and disconnect the PC from the Internet. In
addition, we would strongly prefer not to allow the PC to access the Internet
since it will be used during the day by unsupervised teens.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

See this thread for help setting up XP as a RAS box...

You could then use VNC to access/control the box from the remote box...

Al,

Thanks for the lnks. The instructions on the first seem straightforward -
I'll just need to get the host PC to make those changes.

I see that you're directing me to UltraVNC. Why that rather than RealVNC or
VNC?

Because of the encryption plug-in and the file transfer functionality.

Thanks, Al,

I'll let you know when I navigate these shores. I found out last night that
the phone line to the pool PC that I am trying to remotely access is out, and
needs to be repaired. So I'll have to wait for that first. :^(
