PC Anywhere 10.5 settings

Discussion in 'Windows Desktop Systems' started by mazspeed@redshi, Dec 25, 2002.

  1. Ok here goes. I have a DSL computer with a set IP address, and I'm rebuilding my little nephew's computer right now. His father would like me to be able to get into his computer from afar if he messes it up, and or tries to run porn on there. He's only 14 so His father would like me to have some control over this if I can and send and retrieve stuff this way. My question is how do I set up his and my computer to do this with PC Anywhere? I use PC Anywhere to do my other computers in the house, but he has dial up, so I'm curious on how I can do this.. any and all help is VERY important..
    Thanks so much in advance.

    Have a wonderful Christmas everyone
    Cheers
    Mike

    set his up as a host.. it will answer the phone when you "dial" him I guess... but if you are not dialing in then I am not sure...

    I know there are various FREE apps that will actually let you acess his desktop over the internet.

    I also use PC Anywhere on the local network
     
  3. Yeah I set my Fiance's computer up as the host, and on her IP address I can get in, but I need to find out if that's all it takes. I'm quite sure there are other settings that I need to know but I don't. I do know that I have to set up his computer to see my IP address, but that's all I know.

    Cheers

    well I imagine if it works with your fiances... over cable or whatever then it will work the same way with cable -> dialup.

    Thats the tool that does a similar job, alot of people find it less bloated and better than pcanywhere.
     
  5. I would like to try the PC anwhere first If I could.. :-D

  6. Do I need to have the IP address from the user before I can log on to his system? His will be dial up, so what's the best way to get the IP address? I have his computer here so what do I need to either install or figure out in PC Anywhere so that when he goes online I can just tap in if needed?

    Thanks again
    Mike

    You could tell him to get on IRC then you can DNS him from there... or Coolmon has an option to display the ip address on teh screen.

    There also used to be an app somewhere that would uipdate your dns2go address to your current ip.. I never tried it tho, perhaps others have some more experience with this
     
  8. Ok, I put coolmon on both machines.. Very cool BTW. But now it's just how do I set up my DSL machine to talk to his modem machine with PC Anywhere 10.51. I know how to do the other setups like networking and stuff like that, but this is a bit different and symantec doesn't cover this part of it in there help topics or even there online documentation. HELP?????

    Thanks in advance and thanks for all the help so far.

    Cheers
