Clueless Questions: Remote access/LAN node, CAS fax

Post by Ben Gamb » Tue, 08 Feb 1994 00:36:13

Don't say you weren't warned.  I am setting up a small (7-node)
Lantastic network at work, and will probably have to provide remote
network access (darn bosses!).  I am currently casting about for,
ahem, economy solutions.  The only options I've uncovered are remote
access products (remote computer takes over operation of a computer on
the network), for which we simply don't have a spare machine sitting
around, and network modems (Shiva, USR), which seem to do exactly what
I want but cost as much as another computer at $1300-1500.  Is there
some cheaper remote-node solution I'm missing?

In other news, I'm writing some programs (Clipper 5.2) for use
in-house, and it would be nice to write in some fax capabilities.  To
this end I have purchased Extrasensory's FAXual.lib, but the package
copy claims that the product works via the CAS standard, "such as is
found on Intel fax boards and fax/modems".  Is this really a standard
that I just happen not to have heard of, or is it something
proprietary that the Intel marketeers decided to call a standard for
promotional purposes?

TIA for any help.

1. PPTP - connect a remote LAN, or only one node?

I have been reading about point-to-point tunneling protocol, and I have a
question - if this is not the best newsgroup, please suggest alternative.

Can I connect a node on a remote LAN to a RAS Server at the central site,
establish the tunnel, and then access services on the central site LAN from
ALL nodes on the remote LAN, or only from the node from which the tunnel
connection is made? In other words, can the remote end of the tunnel
function as a router (I think that is the question, anyway, I hope someone
will understand the question AND have the answer!).
