It should not matter what OS is used as PPP or POP3 client. I know I was
able to install the native DUN server (from Win95 CD) so I could dial into
Win95 with PPP (from Windows or Linux). I also used NAT32 to be able to
access the LAN from there, but you apparently do not want that capability.
For WinNT/2k/XP/2003 you probably need a server version (instead of
workstation) to do dialin RAS. I know nothing about that, but I would
think that someone on a Windows newsgroup would.
I do know that you can do dialin with mgetty in Linux.
