Remote connection to KInternet


Good day all!
Does anyone know how to establish a connection on a server that has KInternet from a different computer.
Diagramatically:

Remote Computer -> Connects -> Server -> Uses KInternet to connect on Internet.

Any ideas?

Thanks

Well it can be any OS, preferrably Windows and Linux.
I can connect remotely via VNC but I don't want to do that everytime I want to open/close my internet connection.
Oh but my server is obviously Linux (at the moment its SuSE)

Ok I found that smpppd is a daemon that allows for remote connections.
Now to find a frontend for Windows to be able to connect to the smpppd daemon on the host pc and to setup smpppd to accept remote connections for internet connection establishment.

Also there is a console frontend equivalend for KInternet called cinternet.

LINUX will dial automatically to the ISP.
Just add a device (modem)to the LINUX networking PANEL(like your NIC for example) and you're ready to go.

The thing is that I want to control the connection status. For instance, I would like to disconnect every night, kind of effect. So connecting and disconnecting is really necessary.

Ok I got it to work for Linux.
The server computer has to have the following in /etc/smpppd.conf:
Code:
open_inet_socket = yes
And the client's KInternet should have in Various Settings's Server Tab:
* Manual Settings
* Server IP (the one with the internet connection)
* Account Password

Thats it!

Anyone know of a Windows program equivalent of KInternet that can use smpppd ?

You guys won't believe it but I have actually found that program!
Its in German but atleast you can make out when to connect or not! lol!
Just change the ipconf.txt in the installation directory of that program to the Linux server containing the internet connection with smpppd.

I'm not sure if it'll work for anything else than smpppd.

Just try a few times to download the app if it gives problems. I think its really cool!
