    DSL is a broadband connection. Are you asking if it's possible to use dial-up from home to connect directly to the server? If so, that depends on how the server is configured. It would need to be connected to a phone line and setup to accept direct incoming dial-up connections. I highly doubt that's possible. Companies usually use a special encrypted type of connection called VPN which wouldn't involve allowing dial-up connections.

    Realistically, no, it's not possible. A lot of technical things have to happen for it have a chance of working. A few legal things too. Then you're still left with a slow dial-up connection.
