Wingate in Win2K

The setup sounds like this:

Currently, I have a Win2K Server as a Wingate Server and connected to the Internet via modem, LAN via NIC. Other PCs in the LAN will used this Wingate server as a gateway to browse the internet, which makes Wingate as a proxy. The connection to the internet is not online for 24 hours, it will only dial if there's traffic from the Server itself or other PC's in the LAN.

The problem is the Wingate Server will not dial if there's traffic from the server itself or other PCs in the LAN. Manual dialing has to be performed.

I have set the Wingate server "to dial when connection is needed' but it still wont dial.

Any ideas ?


Thanks.

have you initiated on-demand dialing through the network settings for the modem?

From Technet:

To configure a connection

Open Network and Dial-up Connections.
Right-click the connection you want to configure, and then click Properties.
Do one or more of the following:
To configure dialing devices, phone numbers, host address, country/region codes, or dialing rules, click the General tab.
To configure dialing and redialing options, multilink configuration, or X.25 parameters, click the Options tab.
To configure identity authentication, data encryption, or terminal window and scripting options, click the Security tab.
To configure the remote access server and protocols used for this connection, click the Networking tab.
To enable or disable Internet connection sharing and on-demand dialing, click the Sharing tab.
 Notes

To open Network and Dial-up Connections, click Start, point to Settings, and then click Network and Dial-up Connections.
Depending on the type of connection you are configuring, different options appear. For example, a local area connection only displays the General tab.
For more information about a specific item on a tab, right-click the item, and then click What's This?

EricWestbo,

How about if the traffic is FTP, I mean I want the auto dial when there's a ftp traffic. Will it be the same ?


Thanks.

I would assume so, given that the server would be responding to to the client's request for access, just via a different port.

You original question is telling me that you've tried to set up on-demand dialing, but it didn't work... on-demand will, normally, open the connection via the server at the server's and/or client's request.

Therefore, go through the steps above & let's make sure that your settings are correct.  If not, I'd assume that changing them to allow for on-demand dialing will result in the service working as expected.

Let me know one way or the other...
