I am trying to enable Windows 98 to allow remote administraton.  I want to call my computer and be able to access my files.  Under Help... Remote administration... Adding a user it reffers to an add button under the Remote administration tab.  This button does not exist on my comptuer.  I had to add file and print sharing to even the the tab. So what do I need to do to get the add button.

"Remote Administration" is NOT what you are trying to do.  You first need, if you have not done so already, to install dial-up networking and enable file sharing. You must be running the "Client for Microsoft networks" and preferably NetBuei protocol (in my opinion it works best for this).  Then open the Dial-up networking folder and goto the "Connections" menu.  At the bottom you will find "Dial-Up Server".  Just enable caller access and optionaly set a password.  That is all you need to do.  From the other machine (Network settings must include Microsoft client and at the least the protocol you use at home) you just make a new connection, put in your phone number, and dial.

"Remote Administration" is an option to allow a user (specified on a login server on a network) to administer your computer.  It allows that user (usually the administrator) to read your registry and access your harddrive without you needing to explicitly share them.  It has nothing to do with dial-up networking.

There are several different ways to remotely administrate a computer, the easiest being to use common Remote Administration programs on the computer you're trying to remotely administrate.  This is easiest with the program called Netbus.  I'm sure you'll find a page with netbus on it with a simple webcrawler search.  The easiest-to-use version of netbus is 1.70, then 1.60, then 2.00.  When you have download the netbus package, put the file Patch.exe on a diskette and execute (double-click on) it on the computer you want to remotely administrate.  Both computers must be connected to the internet to continue.  Open the file Netbus.exe, input the IP Address of the computer you want to remotely administrate, and press Connect.  When it says Connected at the bottom, you are free to do whatever you want with the computer.  If you enjoy using netbus, try searching for DeePThroat, BackOriface, Sockets de Troie, Destiny, and Master's Paradise.  If this works for you, then please email me at cerberus@inficad.com so that I can get a little credit please!  Thanks, CERBERUS.  ICQ# 10401416 .

Sorry it has taken so long, but I have two modems in my machine and when I have one of them connected to the internet I can't log on to the dial up server it.  When I dont have the other modem hooked up to the internet I can dial in fine.  What is wrong?  Can I only have one dialup connection at a time even with windows 98?  Is there a workaround?  Please help!

Nope, no workaround.

Except if you buy a Shotgun modem, which joins along with the speed of the modem used with it.  Allow me to explain:

The shotgun modem plugs into your normal phoneline, the one you use to talk to your girlfriend.  The other modem plugs into the nerd-collecting modem, the one you use to talk to your cyberfriend(s:).  Both modems connect to your dialup account (which doubles your connection speed), and when your girlfriend calls, the shotgun modem detects it, breaks its connection (but not the nerd-modem's connection...neat, huh?), and you talk to your girlfriend (while still connected to the internet with the nerd-modem!).  When she hangs/breaks up, the shotgun modem redials its connection and shares the 2 modems' bandwidths.

Heheh...I'm not sure if you wanted to know ALL that, but it was worth it.
:)
Thanks, CERBERUS.

Will the shotgun allow dial up server to connect while the dial up networking is running on one of the modems?

Could I have two connections going with NT?
