We have some WIN95 working in domain under WINNT  we have BRI ISDN
line (2B+D), and we use one of the ISDN channels (1B) connecting our net to ISP through
the router (ascend p50-1sbri-e) and another (1B) we use as a phone.
How can I connect to PC with modem and versa how can I connect to my net
using PC with modem?
Is there anybody who can help
Thank you in advance

At the server side, you may setup a NT server with RAS and VPN enable, that means to setup it as a PPTP server. At the client side, the remote side, use NT workstation, Windows 98 or Windows 95 with PPTP upgrade, dial-up to local ISP, then dial-up your PPTP server again by using IP address as its telephone number, with your private LAN protocol and address, access all the network resources as it does locally.

Windows 95 PPTP upgrade can be downloaded at:

For more information, please refer Microsoft PPTP whitepaper at:

bbao! I've tried what you proposed but it doesnt work
1) When I dial the server side from remote PC using dial-up networking it seems like
    I am in , but I can't see any of the stations from domain neither in neighborhood nor
    in "find computer"
2) Could you describe in details how to "dial-up to my ISP(using dial-up networking?),
     then dial-up my PPTP server again by using IP address as its telephone number"

The following KB articles would help you on the question. They assume the client is NT4.0, but they are indeed useful for PPTP client for Windows 95.

As for browse remote LAN, you should specify WINS server (if you use private IP over PPTP) at your client side, this can be done by either manually assigning it or automatically assigning by remote DHCP facility.

massege that server doesnt answer -  something like that  )

Call back? PPTP supports call back?? I think you mean that, you want get a telephone call back to your remote client PC? It relates your local ISP, not NT RAS and NT's user profile. Of course, it relates your profile at your local ISP.
