Is the RAS server a member of a Domain?  What protocols do you have set up for use in RAS?

Can the RAS client see other computers in the domain or only the RAS server? If it only see's the RAS server check to see if the client is obtaining a IP from either you DHCP or the static pool of addresses assigned by the RAS server. The DHCP MUST be on the same segment as the RAS server if you have configured RAS to use DHCP.

If that doesn't help try Microsoft's How To: http://www.microsoft.com/windows2000/techinfo/howitworks/communications/remoteaccess/default.asp

What's the os on the connecting clients?  If it's pre-win2k, you may need to setup a WINS server.

thanks guys! here are more info. the client is a win98 which uses a modem to connect to my RAS server which is also the domain controller and the only server in this domain. I'm not too sure what protocols i have set up in RAS, but which ones are needed? The client does not see anything! maybe that's because we did know where to look? the client just dialed in and established an conenction but nothing happens. where can he find the RAS server or other computers in the domain? I have set up the RAS such that it uses DHCP to assign IP. thanks again! much appreciated

If you don't have a WINS server already in the domain, I'm pretty sure you'll need one, especially for Win98 RAS clients.  They can't take advantage of DNS the way a Win98 client can that is directly connected to the LAN.

I already have WINS DHCP DNS, all the things installed, maybe it's just the configurations? coz i have no idea what's going on, just installed them with default setting and hope it would work, but it didn't

I am not quite sure what you are doing, but all your threads in EE gave me the impression that you want to set up a ISP business. From the bits and pieces I am also raeding that you are using a dsl connection to the internet. I hope you contacted your ISP first to make sure that he will allow you to rent out your line to other people (Otherwise EE would be allowed to help you with illegal activities!). I am not sure how many clients you have, but also consider bandwidth problem with several users at a time.

For all your ftp/RAS/DHCP/DNS questions I think if you are really getting deeper into this, your questions can't just be like "...to set up a ftp site for a bunch of ftp clients" or "...installed them with default setting and hope it would work", you will have to learn to UNDERSTAND the concept of these techniques and protocols to be able to maintain the system.

Good luck

griessh yes it is legal, and i've made sure, only because this is not a business. I am only doing this simply for educational purpose. please, someone provide me with a working solution? It will only be 1 user at a time, so the bandwidth should not be a problem. modem to modem connection cannot be faster than 33k anyway.
