correct viacom internet gateway doesnt work if u try to to connect a
computer on a lan (thats not on the internet--not sure of the terminology
here) to a reflector on the internet via proxy. however the request was for
a pots to pots connection with cu without using the internet.

setting up ur personal ppp server using viacom internet gateway on ur lan
or personal computer and then having another computer with cu dial up ur
ppp server (using pots) will work.

i havent had a chance to explore the possibilities on wintel: id b
interested to know if u can set wingate up as a ppp server to answer
incoming calls.
