without additional software: set up RAS

http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/rras/rras/about_remote_access_service.asp

on one  side and schedule your copy process which is preceeded by 'rasdial' for the phonebook entry of the ras server.

rasdial will call the ras server and you now have a link
kick off your process
hang up

RAS is Microsoft's remote access server. It will answer the telephone line and establish a ppp connection with the caller, just as if you were calling an ISP.

Hi chicagoan

i am sorry, i cudn't always use internet to post comments on ur comments..so sorry

thank u so much 4 ur help.. sure i can give u points, but i hav few doubts

i gone thru the RAS link u given, it is telling about the RAS API's that can use in programming...
without any programing there is no way to establish a remote connection with RAS on XP ?. if yes pls tell me where and how ?.

i didn't hav experience on working with XP yet. just 4 this issue i changed from win98 to xp.

Have you tried this
Control Panel > Network Connections > New Connection Wzard
Select Connect to the network at my place
Click Next
Select Dialup Connection
Click Next
Select Then modem
Click Next
And then follow through with the wizard

WIth XP answering the call though, no RAS builtin, no?

Maybe in this case you should be looking at a third party comm application.
zmodem script or somthing like http://www.ab-archive.com/English/programmalle/english7950.htm
