I have a Powercentre 150 (Mac OS 7.6, OT 1.1.2, FreePPP) and would like
to access the internet thru my office network (NT Server 4 - no Mac
services turned on).

I know that my computer is setup OK because I can access the net thru
other ISPs. However, when I dial the office network Shiva Lanrover/4E
answers, lets me logon and apparently start PPP - but then nothing more
happens. Does anyone know what is happening here? Does the Shiva
software need appletalk turned on - it is currently disabled.

You might need special software on your NT/Mac. Check out
http://www.nts.com/NTS/mactbfaq.htm for an example of this kind of software.

I just found out about another piece of software. Its called pcAnywhere by Symantec and it lets you have dial-in remote access to your PC's network, and it also lets you remotely control a 'host' machine.

Thanks for the suggestions - I think a lot of my problems may be solved if I can convince the sysadmin to install "Services for Macintosh" on the NT server.
