Hi all, I have seven systems in my lab all of them are connected to a central switch. I want to make 1 system server and rest of all will be client. For this I have installed windows 2000 professional on the server and all the clients have win98SE on them. The following goals I want to achieve with this LAN. 1) Server will be connected to internet using modem and sharing of internet using Network interface card with clients. 2) I want to control options of the client pc from server like downloading, voice-chat etc. 3) I want to record the time when the client is login and logoff for billing purpose. Now can you please tell me what software i should install on the server to achieve the above mentioned goals, and what other suggestions you have for me in this scenario. I will be very thankful to you Irfan Azher

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Do a google search for “Internet Cafe” software. That pretty much describes what you’re doing.

I can’t really address which ones have which features though, you’ll have to sift through what each has that works for you.

    I agree with Howard2nd. Windows 2000 is probably not the way to go. It is not a server. I would look at a Linux solution. Clarkconnect makes a bootable CD system router. Any Linux product can act as a router. They all come with some version of LDAP and/or Radius to setup access. There are many open-source internet cafe systems out there. It WILL take a little work, but it will be more secure and you can use an older and less powefull system. It doesn't take much more than an old computer with a little hard drive, two NICs and over 128 meg of ram.
