Dial up and Terminal Services

For reasons too long and tedious to go into I need to configure a Server 2003 box to accept Terminal Server clients through a modem

Dial up I've never really touched and the same goes for Terminal Services -

I know it will run like a pig (probably) I know its possible to do?

So how do I do it?

Hi Pete!  

What are you going to use for the modem pool?  It makes a difference.

Are you using something like a RAS1500 or Cisco edge device to dial into?

Its a temp solution so some guys in europe can get in while they wait for BT to sort their act out and put a proper link in
It will be just a bog standard modem - either a serial attached or a PCI internal one
this is a very low tech temporary solution
