	I know this isn't directly to do with firewalls, but I hope
that someone can point me in the right direction.

I want to set up a modem pool to allow our clients and field engineers
to have ppp access to our site. I thought of using a terminal server
with ppp support, but am quite worried about security. This would allow
them to direct access to our network, would it not? I would guess that
it would be hard to implement additional filtering. 

Would I be better off setting up a firewall-like machine through
which all external ppp links passed? How about SCSI based terminal
servers ? Do they give me greater control over my links?

Any pointers regarding this would be greatly appreciated. I will 
summarize my findings if anyone is interested.
