Does Windows 98 has a dial-up server and if so is it any better than that nasty one in Win95 Plus!
( I need to do modem to modem IP connections without an ISP in between)

Yes, Win98 has a build in dial-up server... but sorry to disappoint you, it's exactly the same as Win95 Plus! with no improvment.

If you're using Win95 OSR2 upward, I would suggest you to wait....  Otherwise, it does have some bug fix/new features that Win95A lacks.  But then, another year for NT5 is really the final answer.

The issue has to do with the dial-up adapter. In Win95A, you must assign an IP at the adapter level in netcpl.cpl
This is a bit of a violation in and of itself. This IP ,of course, has to have the same first three octets as the client AND the server can never expect to do any work other than as a dial-up server. It's like they never had IP connections in mind when they built DUNS.
In addition, there is no MLPPP support for DUNS server, but the client has it.
Yup, NT RAS is a better deal. Even 4.0 is better than 95 or 98.
Cheers,
Wes
