PPP Server & Quake2

Hi,

I'm running a Quake2 dedicated server on my linux machine, it does nothing
else but run the q2 server and serve samba shares to my local network.

I have attached a 56k modem to the box to allow my mate to dial in so we can
have a nice fast duel session( with me having a ping advantage of course,
coz I'm crap)...I'm just a bit bewildered about how to get RedHat 5.1 to
accept incoming calls and allow the remote machine to connect to the server.

Linux Machine:
486 dx4 100
16Mb Ram
No X
RedHat 5.1 2.0.34
56k modem COM1
10Mb/s NIC
IP : 192.168.1.1
Sub : 255.255.255.0
DNS Name : andy

Networked to a Win95 Machine
P133
32Mb Ram
56k Modem COM2
10/100Mb/s NIC
IP : 192.168.1.2
Sub : 255.255.255.0
DNS Name : main

Remote Machine:
Windows 98
PII 300
128Mb Ram
56k Modem COM3
10/100 Mb/s NIC
No assigned IP or DNS name to modem

The remote machine is networked to another machine but I don't care about
that machine seeing anything, the quake2 server is visable from the P133 so
I know it's working there.

So how can I get the remote win98 machine to connect to my linux server via
modem and access the quake2 server at 192.168.1.1:27910 to play against me
on the P133.

Step-by-Step Idiots Guide if possible

Thanks in Advance

Hello!
i have a freebsd box (4.8-RELEASE) and a italian ADSL (256/128 if i remember good) line.
sometimes my freebsd box (that i use as firewall in my little lan) became stalled.
no data arrive and with ping IP i get error about some buffers full.
in ppp.log i see a lot of:
Jun 24 22:45:39 firewall ppp[66]: tun0: Phase: Clearing choked output queue

i search with google on newsgroups but i don't find nothing that work :)

i put some info on the configuration, because i read a lot of question about this parameters :)

kernel config:
maxusers        64
options         NMBCLUSTERS=32768       #expand nic buffer
