pcanywhere from work to home

hi there,
i am trying to connect from work to my PC at home using pcanywhere v10.0

the home pc is always on with a fixed ip address. i have installed pcanywhere on it and set it up as a host, with a pcanywhere user created on it. it is sitting awaiting connection to a remote (tcp/ip)

i have installed pcanywhere at work and created a remote - with the ip address through tcp/ip. when i try to connect i get a message "connecting to xxx.xx.x.xx" - which eventually times out. is it because i'm behind a firewall at work here? (i can search for hosts and get a list of hosts available on our work network, but i can't seem to talk to my pc over the internet) am i doing something wrong or will i be scuppered by the firewall???

thanks
mike

Yes you are being blocked by your firewall at work.  Nothing you can do about it unless your firewall administrator will make changes to it for you.  ofcourse I doubt he will as this will open a security hole.  

Try www.gotomypc.com

works great behind any firewall.
