I have a 2000 server which we have an business application that is used to send bills and reports to our centres, this on our local network here, what i want to do is set up a seperate dial up connection on this server, then what i am trying to do is allow all the clients to connect to this app. through the LAN,but then i want the application to send its reports and bills through the dial up connection without disabling the LAN connection . I suppose the question i want to ask is how do i make the dial up connection the default one to send its reports from but leaving the LAN connection open for the clients to connect?

What routes for your network?  If it is the windows 2000 box then your can set the dial up interface route to have a lower metric that will force the data to traverse the dial up link before traversing the lan link.
