Question Sharing DSL internet from office to home


Hi all,

I have a DSL connection from my office. i have a linux and winnt4 server and the DSL connection is shared by a sercom router. I want to share this internet to my home network. My home network consists of a win2k server edition, with 8 client pc's. Is there any solution to connect my home network to the office network via 56k modem and have the internet connection the same as in the office? Many many thanks to the one that can help me.... all systems admin, please HELP!

No. 56k is much slower than DSL and the speed of the modem is the fastest speed you will get.

What does your office think about this.

<This is a joke, right? I think the mods may take issue over a troll like this.>

Hi xavierP,

Off course the DSL is much faster. I did not mean that. And this is no joke. What im trying to say is that i need to share the internet to my LAN at home. Before at the office, we have a dial-up gateway that shares the internet. I configured Winnt4 at office to receive dial-in calls and have my win2k server from home dial on it. What happens? i have an internet connection at my home network. Voila. By simply dialing up at nt4 server in my office, adjust authentication, and i already can share the internet at my office. But now, i have a redhat 7.3 box, i cannot do it anymore. Is there any solution that for example, i can connect a modem to linux box on office, dial-in to it, and have internet shared all the way to my home network. please people ..HELP

So you want to dial the linux box in the office from your home machine, and go out through the office DSL link yeah?

cheers

It sounds to me like you want to make the linux box into a PPP server that you can then dial into to get a valid IP address on the office LAN. Once thats done all you'll need to do it get the linux box to forward packets between its interfaces which is dead simply. I've never tried to setup a PPP server so can't be much use on that one. Take a look at http://www.tldp.org/HOWTO/PPP-HOWTO/index.html

Note that between two 56K modems you only get 33.6K as your upstream is the limiting factor. IIRC this is slightly higher if you have a V.92 modem at either end.

HTH
