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
TIA for any help.
