Hi,


I have a windows 2000 server  and it have internet access via a  sattelite. I'd like to know how can i get people to get access to the internet from my server using their phone line. I'm looking for at least 100 people. what material should i buy? what kind of router? ...etc and How to configure those material.
but i don't have many phone line available. If there is a material that can split the phone line..?
what can i do if i don't have many phone lines.

You can configure Windows 2000 Server to act as Remote Access Server, which will accept both dial-up connections and VPN connections.  You can read about this at www.microsoft.com/resources/documentation/windows/2000/server/reskit/en-us/intnetwk/part2/intch07.mspx.  You can also take a look at the MS support webcast re. Routing and Remote Access in Windows 2000 Server at http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?kbid=325421.

However, each dial-up connection will require its own phone line and modem.  If you have ten modems and ten phone lines, you will be able to accept only ten connections at a time.  A VPN (virtual private network) would be a much more effective means of remote access as it would provide faster connections and a greater capacity without the additional expense of the multiple modems and ongoing cost of the multiple phone lines.  However, your users would need internet access to be able to connect to the server.
