I want to setup a RAS server on NT... and I have more than one modem ..let say 5 modem for my 5 branch
Currently, I have an annex modem port attach with 5 modem for all my branches to dial in.

How do I setup the modems to my RAS server so that all 5 user from my branch can dial in to my RAS server and not using the annex anymore?

Do I need to buy extra hardware to this ?

You will need 5 com ports directly attached to the NT Server. While I usually don't recommend it you can add a multiport I/O Card but make sure that it's a good card from a reputable manufacturer. I have had nightmares with Bad I/O Cards. I would recommend a Digi Card. At that point you just setup the RAS Config and you'll be ready to go.

Actually my recommendation is dependant on the load the server is currently under and how much RAS is going to be used. If the server is pretty loaded and the Users are going to be online quite a bit then I would say reconsider. The best route in this scenario is some other access server (Such as a shiva).

If the Server is used very little and the lines are not going to be used very often then you would be able to get by with this configuration.

Hope this helps
