I'd like to know how to login from one PC to another (both running Windows 98) and are networked using TCP/IP protocol.
If one is in Linux or Unix, I can login
from the other with no problem. I tried
to setup DialUP Networking in one to answer the phone line, but all it does is answer the phone then freezes in there with garbage being displayed on the sreeen.

Assuming you have the correct access privileges on both machines, you could try:

Start -> Run, and then type:
\\199.2.210.18\c$

where 199.2.210.18 is the machine's IP number and c$ is the default name of the C: drive on that machine.

Or you can look into programs like Timbuktu, which will allow you to remotely control other machines over TCP/IP or dialup with much more ease than what MS buils in.

check to see that the settings for your modems are set the same. (port speed, etc) also, make sure that the server type is correct, for instance,  set it to the protocol for win98/nt, not slip, (for unix).
check your drivers for the modem as well....and upgrade to the latest dial up networking version.  1.3 I believe, available at microsoft.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Not sure what you are trying to do? Do you just want them to communicate via network or are you trying to connect thru dial-up? I do not understand why you want to connect using phone line. But it does work that way because I have done it, only to test modem connection speed nothing else.

Maybe I should make it clearer: The intention is to remotely access a PC
by phone line and execute some works
I used to do it with PC Anywhere or Procomm Plus, but I like to try it on Dial Up Networking under Connection Tab.
Any idead anyone out there?

If you were running some kind of server program on one machine you could connect to it to transfer files, download files. Otherwise as far as I know you need Pc anywhere or something like it. WIN 2000 may have more options to it? Do not know though.

Firstly you need to setup Dialup Server on one of the Windows98 machines.  Then you log in that machine from the other using dialup networking.  Once connected you can try a program called RADMIN downloadable from www.famatech.com.  This is a cool little program that lets to take control of another pc using only tcp/ip.
