Win 98 setup?

In order to dial into a win98 computer, you have to have the dial in server
(you will need to install it from a floppy). There is a problem with this,
however, which is that the Win98 dial in server doesn't support TCP/IP, so
after you dial in, the current version of VNC will not run.

PCAnywhere or Laplink will work this way, though not over the dial up. If
you must use it this way, you will need NT, using the RAS.

Incidentally, Laplink was given away on a coverdisk (Internet Advisor, Issue
23), so you might be able to get hold of a back copy.

Regards.
