I have windows 2003 enterprise addition, and i am kinda a newbie at it. I got it at home to play with. I have however played with it enough to use RAS. I am now thinking about starting a small 3-5 user internet. The idea is to sell a internet dail-up connection to a few random people i kno. But, since i am still kinna young, and dont have a job, before i go and spend a whole 30 dollars for this, i need to kno for sure how to do it. I have a good idea on how to set up connections and things, but i need to kno the hardware and things to use. I also need to kno how to set it up where i can use a second computer(running 2003 enterprise) to use as a modem server, and how to use te modems on that computer and use it on the main server. Here is my setup so far...
I have a older comp as the main server, i have plenty of modems, i have a copy of win 2003 on both computers, i kno how to wire the 2 computers up together(but i dont kno how to incorperate a second server), i have a 24 port 10baseT hub, right now i a dial-up connection, but i will have dsl if i do it(which i kno how to share), and i will be getting a second line.
I was wondering how i could many dail-up connections in one phone line. I think maybe a phone switch, but i dont kno if u have to do something at the phone company to use them.
I need to kno if 5 people is even worth it with a new line at $27 and dsl At $25-30.
If u dont kno it all, any help is GREATLY appreciated.
