    I use pcAnywhere to connect from my home PC (WindowsXP Pro) to my work machine (Windows 2000) to run some sales reports on weekends. From time to time the screen refreshes and mouse movements become so slow that I once drove to work (an hour round trip) instead of dealing with the connection.

    I mentioned the problem to one of our IT guys and he said it sounded like a latency problem. I am probably the last person using pcAnywhere at work. They have switched almost everyone else to a VPN. Should I insist that I be switched? What will I lose and what will I gain? (I hope I have used the correct terminology).

    Thanks in advance for any comments.
