  • SBS and Dialup problems

    This one has really got me - not helped that I got it dumped on me.

    SBS (Dell server) apparently set up OK
    LAN connection to 3 workstations

    The site is back of beyond so only internet access through dial up via an internal modem.
    LAN IP is 192.168.1.1

    UTFW (CIEW) to specify access via the modem. All seemed to work, connection appeared in RRAS and could be connected. No default gateway showing in LAN configuration

    Web browsing eventually worked and established dial-up connection (visible in RRAS). Connection did not appear to want to drop once established, but hey, its not my phone bill!

    Other PCs picked up IP address with 192.168.1.1 as gateway. Would not connect to the internet at all -- timeouts etc.

    I'm well stuck here -- normally SBS via an ADSL router is a doddle, but this one is getting me down. All bright advice appreciated -- I have the server at home for a weekend of TLC or possibly a large axe through its drives

    Sorry, haven't dealt with dial-up since 1998. AFAIK UTFW should just work!
    TIA

      I know.... you would think UTFW would solve all the problems... Oh well, this means another lost weekend....

        Can't you get a cheap router that dials up for you then you can connect the SBS to the router and it's a doddle (like ADSL!)

          Thats a possibility -- you know any dial up (not ADSL or ISDN) routers?

            OK, an update to close things off.

            Complete rebuild on the server
            UTFW to set up dial up direct from the server
            Added single new workstation to domain

            All OK (bloody slow, but thats not my problem...)

            Found all sorts of problems on the original setup -- all PCs had Internet Sharing enabled, dynamic IPs but static DNSes, wierd and wonderful routing table entries.....

            Anyway, issue completed and closed as far as I'm concerned -- the clients are someone elses problem.

            Remember, children, if its SBS, just Use The ..... Wizard and everything will be A-OK
