    ok here my question, first some background.

    I have a couple of PC connected via a router then into a cable modem and out to the WWW. ,ok i have logmein on both pc so i can access my stuff while i am away. Recently a power outage happened, and modem and pc came back up but the router didn't, so i lost my access to the PC's.
    Now on of the pc's also have a old phone modem card in it, that i can still dial upto the Internet the old way!

    How do i set up being able to dial into my one pc, so i can at least get some desktop control over it? I seem to remember something called RAS(?) but can't seem to find anything about doing this in XP, is their software for XP that will allow me to do this?

    thanking you all in advance.

    i'm not sure if the remote access is geared up for dialup.

    it's a double edged sword. in tools/internet options/connection, i select never dial a connection for dialup.

    if i don't, it tries to connect by dialup instead of cable.

    Ive also used LogMeIn for a long time. Its software based, all you need is an internet connection to gain access. If you're looking to access the computer when you're away and you're saying all you have available right now is dial up, you'll have to have it dialed up all the while you are away. Does that answer your question?
