    I forget the exact term but Michka has stated that you always want to
    use offline synchronization if there's a chance the connection will
    fail as such have a high rate of corruptions.

    However I'm a bit confused when you state Intranet dialup. Intranet
    is usually a term for web pages. Are you running an Access FE at the
    other end of the dial-up connection or a web browser?

    I'd suggest visiting www.trigeminal.com to see if Michka has anything
    to say on that topic. And/or visit the replication newsgroup.
