Configuring Cisco router ISDN for remote access

Hi,

I'm even totally sure this is possible, but does anyone know if you can configure a Cisco 2600 series router to act as a remote access server using the ISDN card?

I'm basically looking at options for replacing an old Windows RAS server, but as we only have the occasional connection (due to most people connecting via VPN), Ideally I want to free up a server (and license!) and find an alternative method.

Thanks

Yes, the but the user would have to be using ISDN also. Is that your intention?

Hmm... by your response, I'm guessing the ISDN cards on the 2600 don't support V.90 connections?

Well, you can make it work if the ISDN circuit is a PRI, as long as the PRI is configured to do both analog and digital (which they usually are). You can't do it with a BRI, as that is digital-only.
