Unhappy Remote Access for CentOS 4


Hi all

I have a CentOS 4 box in my office. Everythin is running fine until my sales people wanted to connect to this linux box to retrieve some data. Can I setup RAS for my CentOS box to accept RAS connection.

I only have a 56k analog modem and a PSTN direct line. To make matters worse I do not have any internet connection. So I cannot connect to my Linux box by allowing ssh through the internet.

Just some thing simple will do. I did some digging but it doesn't seemed to point in the right direction.

I really need someone jus to point me in the right direction

Thanks in advance

well what kind of experience are you actually after? it's certainly possible to configure a dialin server using something like mgetty to answer a call made to it. there are many guides around e.g. http://axion.physics.ubc.ca/mgetty.html
