Is there a way to restrict a modem so that it'll only dial pre-configured phone numbers? A few of my users need to use a modem, but I want to restrict them to only connect to my system.

We're using Win2k Pro, and XP Pro.

Thanks!

You can set a group policy that has a RAS entry you can speicfy, and you can then further lock down the dial up connections on the systems.

creat account for each user. create incoming connection. On the User tab of the incoming connections, select the user, then properties, click Always use the callback number. Enter the number of the user location. This will shift phone charge to the company, and will allow user only to call from their specific location.

If you want to control the phone number, consider for RRAS windows 2003 server.

Sorry, I didn't mean to abandon, just haven't had time to figure this out yet.

It looks like using the group policy will work for what I need.

Thanks!
