Win 98 setup?

Pardon me if I am wrong.  Perhaps some of the other guys can comment on
this as well.  Just because you are dialing up to connect to another PC, I
think you would still need a protocol.  I would think you could use windows
networking for this.  Go into the controlPanel\network area of windows and
hard code an address for each machine under the "TCP/IP -> Dial-up
Adapter".  Just make sure you have only the last group of numbers
different.  The first three will need to be the same.  For example,

Machine #1: Address: 10.1.1.1, Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0 and
Machine #2:  Address: 10.1.1.2, Subnet mask: 255.255.255.0

Under Primary Network Logon choose "Client for Microsoft Networks"

It should work something like this.  You will have to play with it a
little.  I am sorry if my instructions are a bit vague, I am doing this off
the top of my head.

Have a Good Day,

Michael L.

I will dial into the machines seperatley, no thru AOL.

So I will use Windows Dial-up networking to dial into an office computer
(direct connection) not thru the internet.

Just I am a novice to networks myself. How do I give I computer an IP
address?

Luke,

Just a thought. If /all/ the machines are restricted to dial up modems and
the only Internet connection is thru AOL, you might well find it a lot
easier to set up pcAnyWhere. I suspect it is a lot easier to deal with on a
dial up situation that trying to use VNC. I'm not sure you can set up VNC
in your situation, but if you can, it wouldn't be easy (IMHO).

You can probably buy a recent version of pcAnyWhere for $20 or so (I paid
$18.00 for v 10.x the other day on e-bay).

HTH!
