    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  You can also take a look at the MS support webcast re. Routing and Remote Access in Windows 2000 Server at

    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.
