Has enyone experience with ShareWay Ip from Open Door Networks. I'm planning to use it for remote Acces over IP and for speeding up datatranfer for the 10 baseT Macs by using it on a 100 baseTX Mac. Or should I better wait for Windows NT 5?

I do not have a clear understanding of what you want to do. Please provide more info about the topology of your network(s).

Of course, you can connect to AppleShare IP servers with a dialup PPP connection using the Chooser Extension "AppleShare" (version 3.7.4 or Greater) by typing in the IP addr of the Server provided that you have TCP hole through the router.

For the firt question the Hub gave a satifying answer.
For the second question - if ShareWay could be used as the solution to use TCP/IP as the protocol to transfer data to and from the NT-server with the Apple clients - I'm not sure.
I'm afraid that if I use one fast Mac as AppleShare to TCP/IP router with 20 clients I will slow down all the datatransfer.

I was just about to try ShareWay IP.  I will let you know by the end of the week, whether it does what I want it to do (and hopefully, answer your question).

I hope this helps.
