Have one modem dial the phone number the other modem is on.  It should be that simple.  If you are having some additional problem (like it won't pick up the phone), let me know.  You do need to go through the phone company lines to get a dial tones and the ringing the modems expect.

You have to do a software setup and configuration on both Server and remote workstation.

I thought you were doing virtual private networking. I you don't have this set up, here are the directions for windows 98.  This should be simple if all you want to do is be able to move files.  

To set up a Dial-Up Networking connection to your corporate network

Double-click My Computer, double-click Dial-Up Networking, and then click Make New Connection. If it is your first Dial-Up Networking connection, you will be prompted automatically.
In Select a Device, click Microsoft VPN Adapter, and then click Next.
In Host name or IP Address, type the name or IP address of the virtual private networking server for the network to which you want to connect. For example, type:
pptpserver.mycompany.com
or

172.16.48.1
Click Next, and then click Finish.

Notes

To create a virtual private network connection across the Internet, you must also create a Dial-Up Networking connection to your Internet access provider. To find out how to create a new connection, click Related Topics.
If you do not know the name or IP address of the virtual private networking server for your network, contact your system administrator.

Here is some more information.

Using Virtual Private Networking

Virtual private networking is a new networking technology that you can use to access corporate networks securely across the Internet or a LAN. Virtual private networking uses a tunneling protocol such as PPTP (Point-to-Point Tunneling Protocol). You set up a virtual private network connection using Dial-Up Networking.

For example, if you take your portable computer on a business trip, you can dial a local number to connect to your Internet access provider and then create a second connection, or tunnel, into your corporate network across the Internet. You will have the same access to your corporate network as you would if you connected directly to it from your office.

Note

Your corporate network must support PPTP. If you have questions, contact your system administrator.

If this is still not what you are looking for, just explain further and I will give you more details.  To move files, you don't need an entire network arrangemens.  You can even use laplink or a direct cable connection.

If your Nt Server is on the Internet you can connect through your ISP, all you need is the address of your NT Server.
