Hi Kevin As I understand it he's not connecting to his home network via an ISP. Instead he's dialling into a modem which is sitting in a box which is already inside his own network, and then creating a connection via that. In effect he's acting as his own ISP. If you have a look at RAS under NT you can set this up quite easily.

Sorry, I should have been more specific. I meant how do you connect to your home computer when you dial in on your laptop. I spend time away from home and there are occasions where I would like to access my home machine from a remote location. The problem, as i see it, is that every time I use a Freeserve dial up it will give me a different IP address so I can't configure my firewall to accept it. Is that right?
