Of course direct dial in is very useful when the problem you're trying to 
solve is that your Internet connection is down !  :-)

Re: Direct remote access vs over the internet

The only time I use the dial up versus my cable VPN is when I change my 
windows password at work instead of at home.  Then I have a bear of a time 

connecting via cable.  Hopefully since they reloaded my home PC, put XP on 

there instead of W2K, and changed my method of signon I won't have this 
issue anymore.

Our old Axcess/400 protocol converter finally gave up the ghost yesterday.

We have a VPN whereby we can dial in and get a sign on screen remotely 
the internet using Mochasoft or Client Access (oops, I mean iSeries 

My question is:  Is there still value in being able to dial in directly
bypassing the internet?  I.E. if you ain't calling in over the public
internet, you can't be sniffed.  Do some of you still do that?  I ass-u-me
that with a Cisco PIX and router it could be done here.  The phone
extensions are still available.
