Does anyone have a detailed guide on making a dialin server including
descriptions on the hardware needed?
Thanks in advance!

Perhaps a supported ISDN Card and a proper setup.

EEEEE..... head on over to http://www.livingston.com/ and buy a portmaster.Quote:> I can see I wasn't specific enough! :) ... I need to handle about 30

If you were to setup individual ISDN modems, you'd have to buy tons of
BRI lines for it. It might be economical for what you're doing, but the
Lucent boxes are ROCK solid, and the big advantage is that they remain
seperate from your Linux box. We've had the PM3 running for 3 years
now and it hasn't had a problem once.

If you want to set up more than a half-dozen B-channels, you really need
to find out what the telephone company can do to help you. Frankly, it is
in their best interest and yours to deliver the stuff over the densest
Since an European PRI has 31 B-channels, and assuming you can get a
flat-rate PRI service, it should be a lot more cost-effective to buy one
PRI than 16 BRIs. (Here in Houston, you can't get flat-rate outgoing
calls on PRI's, but for incoming calls, a PRI has 23 B-channels at about
$500 per month as opposed to a BRI with 2 B-channels at about $70 per
Note that it's the PRI part that's important, not whether you're feeding a
(Lucent nee Livingston) PM-4, a (Cisco) AS-5300, a Max-6000, or something
Linux based. There are a number of companies that sell high-speed
telephone interfaces with Linux drivers.
One that I know in particular is a company called Ariel
(http://www.ariel.com, I believe, their page requires frames and
view it with Lynx) who produces a PRI interface with modems and Linux
drivers. I know that it works with US PRI's (23 B-channels) but I don't
know about European PRI's. Perhaps Mr. Hansen can ask them.

I am looking to connect an AIX-LAN located
Two New York city blocks apart. I would like

I am interested in connecting them through modem.
I want to have, full high function terminal
capability. Therefor I would like
Slip running on the AIX, I hear
it already comes equiped with it, if so what
should I do to make this possible.

My question pertains to the kind of hardware
we should be purchasing, and the Software I
will be needing.
