Connect to RAS server in OS X? - Mac Networking

I've read somewhere that Macs can connect to a Windows RAS server. I'm not sure where that would happen but I tried Internet Connect in 10.2.6. It never connected and I was searching MacWindows, OSXHints, Google, to find out how. I discovered that OS 8.5 could do so, but surely Jaguar can? I'm hoping to know the procedure so I don't spend a weekend locking myself out all weekend with the login safeguards we have at work. thanx, sam...

    Default Connect to RAS server in OS X?

    I've read somewhere that Macs can connect to a Windows RAS server. I'm
    not sure where that would happen but I tried Internet Connect in 10.2.6.

    It never connected and I was searching MacWindows, OSXHints, Google, to
    find out how.

    I discovered that OS 8.5 could do so, but surely Jaguar can?

    I'm hoping to know the procedure so I don't spend a weekend locking
    myself out all weekend with the login safeguards we have at work.

    thanx, sam

    Preferences -> Network

    Show: Internal Modem
    Tab: TCP/IP
    Configure: Using PPP

    Tab: PPP
    Account name: windows_domain_name\username
    Password: ooooooooooo
    Telephone #: 123-456-7890

    Tab: Proxies - set as you were at work.
    Tab: Modem - configure as needed for your phone line

    The only other thing is that I think your windows_domain_name\username
    account at work, must allow remote access. I know that at my company we
    had to get permission to have the remote access flag set on our account.
