How did you configure the dialer machine, what OS it has?

When you create a new Dialup connection and you select Modem as a device, the next screen asks you for Phone number in Windows 2k and higher.

hi naveedb
In dialer machine.I give the phone number of the dialin server which is windows xp machine.But in windows xp machine I am not getting any option to mention the phone number of that server as the option is precisely given in windows 2000 server in the routing and remote access server click port and than click on modem and than configure modem.There is one tab there to mention the phone number of dialin server(or that server itself)

Understood. ON the XP Machine, you will only need to select the Incomming device, which you selected as "softv90 voice speaker modem". Please not that XP is a client Operating System so it does not provide interface similar to Routing and Remote Access. That interface is only available in Windows 2003.

Having said that, it should work when you dialin. Can you try to dial the phone number of XP Machine on a regular line and tell me what happens, does it keep ringing and ringing or you hear Modem noises after few rings.

Also, Go into Control Pannel, Administrative tools, Services tab to see if Routing and Remote Access service is running, and there is no other program on the computer that is using the Modem.

You don't need windows 2003 to enable VPN connection unless you want to use more then one machine etc. You can do it with windows XP.

Lets start again.

Lets say the machine you configure as Dialin Server is call D-XP and the machine that will be calling is C-XP.

On D-XP, is the modem and phone line working? Can you open up dialer and call any phone number? Click on Start/Run then type dialer and click OK. Just call your phone number to confirm that it is not an issue of phone line of Modem. When done, close the Dialer.

If it works:

Delete the existing Incomming connection and create a new connection.

Click on "New Connection Wizard"
Click on "Next"
"Setup and Advanced Connection" Next
"Accept Incomming Connections" Next
"Select you Modem" Next
"Allow VPN Connections" Next
"Select user" Next
Highlight TCP/IP and Assign and range OR if you have DHCP, select that and click Next
Click on Finish.

Then dial the number for your D-XP machine and see if it picks up from any phone.

Hi naveedb
I am not getting your poing to allow VPN connection coz I don't have any known name or ip on the internet.Let me understand my scenario again
machine at office   192.168.0.10 (remote access server's ip)  having modem
want to access server which is having the ip 192.168.0.1
machine at home ip 192.168.0.98 (or from the static pool of ip which i select from the ip list at the time of setting remote access configuration) having modem

Now I think u get my scenario.Let me know if there is any other option through which I can access my office server.

"Allow VPN Connections" Next

You can select Don't Allow VPN Connection, should not make any difference since you do not have internet access, what matters is the device you selected earlier which is the Modem.
