    Good morning.
    I have a Windows 2003 Server with a serial modem connected on it. I should
    share a dial-up connection to some LAN users. Is there a way to do it ?!? Do
    you know where I can find information on how to setup it ?!?

    Thank you a lot.
    Bye, Luca

    Sorry but forget this information:

    I have a Windows 2003 Server with a serial modem connected on it. I should
    share a dial-up connection to some LAN users BY USING "ROUTING AND REMOTE
    ACCESS"

    I saw a lot of documents on how to setup remote connection by using Routing
    and Remote Access, but it is only for external users: users with their PC
    call by modem a number and connect to server in wich Remote Access is
    installed.

    Instead I need to "share" dial-up connection for LAN USERS. This connection
    doesn't connect to internet, but to a private network. And I need to reach
    from some LAN clients only one IP address of this private connection.

    Bye, Luca

    P.S. Thank you very much.

    That is a pretty unusual setup, so it is most unlikely that you will
    find a document describing how to set it up. I presume that this is a dialup
    connection from your server to the remote machine, not the other way around.

    The fact that it connects to a private network rather than to the
    Internet should not really make much difference. You should still be able to
    share the connection using RRAS/NAT. NAT still works if both sides are
    private networks. If the LAN has no other external connections it should
    just work. If this LAN already has an Internet connection through some other
    gateway, you will need extra routing to get the traffic for the dialup
    connection to the RRAS server instead of the default gateway.
