If I have 4 Windows 98 pc's (with one being a server) on a network at my work location.

Please advise how I can work from home (on my home Windows 98 pc) and connect to my work location network?

We are using a 56k modem for dialing up the internet on one pc at work and I am using a 56k modem for my internet connection at home.

RE: Connecting on a network from remote location

Study up on a technology called VPN.  Then if both computers are connected to the internet, you can access each others networks.  Or, you could figure out how to dial-up from one machine to the other.

RE: Connecting on a network from remote location

Another possible solution is PCAnywhere or Remote Administrator. Do a search on Google for both.
