I want to set up fedora1 machine to be able to recieve dial-in internet connections


I want my linux machine to be set up so that I can connect via a modem from a remote location (say, if i'm on the road), to my server at home that has DSL service. Is this a big deal? What is this called? Like, I want to get internet access through my server at home.

Josh

If your server is 'always on', you can ssh into it from afar, if you wanna get in and manipulate files. You can log in as yourself. It depends on what you wanna do with it. If you want to access hosted content on it from elsewhere, you'll have to set up a web server and host it that way. If the machine you are using to access it is not a *nix box, you can get a Win32 ssh agent called PuTTy that will give you console access to your machine as well. If you have a static IP, you'll have no trouble getting in. If you are using PPPoE and it changes from time to time, its better if you have a domain name to ssh into. If you don't wanna or can't buy one, try using a redirection service like www.dyndns.org. Good luck.

That's way more than I can handle. You seem to be asking if you can set yourself up as your own dial-up ISP. Why don't you see if your ISP will let you access your account from other locations. My dialup provider has access points all over the country that are free and they provide access to other countries for a price. If you wanted to access your computer at home, you'd have to set yourself up as a dial up server and install a modem in your home machine. If you wanted to dial into yourself, you could only do it locally for free. If I misunderstood what you want to do, please clear me up on it.

I haven't tried it myself but you can look into VNC (try a search in google or go to www.realvnc.com) Should let you access your home pc as if you were actually their and then you should be able to browse the internet using your dsl connection at home but retrieving it remotely at dial up speed. Let us know if its a success
