http://forums.fedoraforum.org – Hi All, I have a question regarding this server setup. I wonder if it still exist this time. I am planning to implement this server that would really utilize our main office. Problem: No Budget for new ISP connection for different branches. Solution: PPP Dial in server or (any suggestions from you guys would do) Base on my research ingredients are the following: - mgetty*.rpm - ppp*.rpm and Major tweaking. It sez here also on my research "Optional authentication against a RADIUS or TACACS server" 1. My question is it up to me if I prefer to implement RADIUS(bundled with lucent hw) or TACACS(CISCO hw)? 2. Definitely I need an external modem right? 3. I need a physical diagram on how to implement such project? Is this correct see drawing below: ISP<===LAN<====>server<====>lan clients .................................... || .................................... || ....................................modem .................................... || .................................(branches) Thanks (HowTos)
