    connecting GNU/Linux boxes: "ethernet to modem"


    Dear GNU/Linux users,

    I need to connect a GNU/Linux system with broadband ether-net connection to a GNU/Linux system with a modem attached.

    BoxA -> Internet -> ??? ->Phone -> Modem -> BoxB

    This is typically the scenario if I want to connect from office to home.
    How do I go about it?

    Thanks.

    sounds like you want to do VNC (Virtual Network Computer), try doing a search on that.

    have fun

    I understand that I need to setup a dial-in server at the home pc. What I do not understand is how to dial-out to that home pc if I only have a broadband ethernet connection from the office. I need to understand how to put the data on internet-lines on to telephone-lines.

    Thanks.

    ah, I see. So you want to be at your office (which has broadband connection with the internet - ie LAN thence some sort of router to the internet) and connect with your home PC (which has a dialup internet connection). Not sure that you can. You'd need to see if any ISP will allow you to call out from their local point of presence.

    I thought that you had wanted to do the reverse (dial out from home to your office). This would be reasonably easy to do as you would be controlling the dialup. Then it would be a matter of created a virtual network between the two computers.

    Sorry, that I couldn't have been more help.
