My office have a Windows NT Ver. 4.0 server. Our warehouse is located 30 miles away from our office. My CEO instruction is to avoid internet but use modem to modem connection for file transfer from warehouse to main office server. I need to know how to setup our remote warehouse windows 95 and our main office Windows NT server without any additional software such as Co session or PC anywhere.

If You have already configure the modem in both PC (the modem is properly checked using the control panel icon).
You can use "HyperTerminal" (giving the tel.number) in order to start the connection.
If the second PC d'not answer is possible to start the connection, when the first PC is calling (call rings), writing "ATA" in the HyperTerminal Windows, in the PC answering.
When both PC are connected You can easy transfer files using HyperTerminal commands.
This system can be used also to connect a Desktop PC and a portable PC if you d'not have a serial cable but both PC have the modem, the only problem is the speed.. is only 33000 byte!!

Hi Pknsb,
What you want to do is called RAS, or Remote Access Service.
In order to set this up, you must have  System Administratator privileges on the NT Server.
To start, select the Network Icon in the control Panel.
Double click Network.
Click Services Tab.
Click ADD command button.
Highlight Remote Access Service.
Put in the correct path to your Window NT Server files.
When the files have been copied you still have to configure the Ports and modems the RAS will use, what protocols and security methods will be used, and set up permissions for the users that will be allowed to dial in.
On the Win95 side you configure Dial up Networking using the same protocols as on the Server. . .
As you see this question is far too complicated for someone to adequately anwser in a little text box. There are books written about this subject. You'll need one to set this up.
