pcanywhere from work to home
Posted on 2001-07-31
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???
