My office computer, running winxp pro, is on a dsl line. How do I set up my office computer and home computer (also running winxp pro)so I can connect to
it directly using dial up modem on both ends and share its internet connection?

I’ll start by assuming that it’s OK with your company to use your office computer in this
The good news is that it’s not quite as far-fetched a scenario as it sounds.
I’ve never done it, but it seems like it should be possible.
I would point you at software packages such as pcAnywhere
or LapLink. They handle the pc-to-pc connection, and
I believe can set up to handle dialing in. Then, assuming it doesn’t conflict
with the package, I believe you should be able to use and perhaps even share
that office DSL connection to the internet.
There are several other remote access packages that may do the job as well.

I did this using PCAnywhere. First you need to know the static IP that your ISP assigned to your office Modem/Router. Now install PCAnywhere on both computers.
At OFFICE: Open PCAnywhere and set it as HOST. Access your DSL Modem/Router (normally by using http://10.0.0.2). Open “Port Forwarding” and add PCAnywhere port to your computer’s IP address assigned by the modem/router.
At Home: open PCAnywhere. Click “Quick Connect”. Type IP address of modem/router that you got from your ISP. click CONNECT. Give username and password that you entered while configuring your office pc as host. Done!
if you need further assistance on connecting and are using winxp pro on the computer you are trying to connect to “you need to have a always on internet connection”, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and i will send you detailed instructions or if you have any questions feelfree to ask
I am running XPHome ed. at home and getting out to the net by way of DSL router (Bellsouth). My office PC is behind a firewall and I am running XP pro. I also have the PCAnywhere software at the officie. What options do I have?

My home internet provider does not support VOIP but we have a VSAT system in the office that work with VOIP. so how can I use my home internet connection and connect to my office internet?
