I have a situation coming up that I'd like some help finding solutions for.
I'll be spending a significant time out of the US shortly. While I am away I will have access to a broadband connection. The problem is that I need to be able to also use a dialup connection that only has a US access number. I'd rather not have to pay international long distance to use the dialup connection.
Is it possible to set up an XP system in the US that is connected to both a telephone line and a broadband connection and utilize the dialup connection while connecting remotely via the broadband connection?
The other option I've been thinking of is setting up a broadband VOIP connection and attempting to use dialup over this connection from abroad. Does anyone have experience with this type of setup?
I tried searching this forum, but didn't come up with any results on this topic. If there's already another thread that deals with this... my apologies, but could someone please reply with the link.
If I understand correctly the computer in the US will have a broadband connection as well as a dial up. I am assuming that the dial up is to a specific destination and not to access the Internet.
If you are considering WinXP pro, you have all of the ingredients already. You will just have to setup Remote Desktop on that computer and access it from where ever. It obviously would be best to have a static external IP addr on the broadband connection in the US as well. Also port forwarding may come into play depending on the Internet perimeter device/router upstream of the computer.
