Knock yourself out Rob!-).
I do have abot a quarter of an hour... lets see Incoming port(s)... I think you can read up on this at Symantacs site... 5631 and 5632 seems to ring a bell. One for "discovering" pcAW hosts, the other for the actual connection. So one should just allow the latter:-). You can of course choose to not use the defaults.

Teera, you should know that the encryption provided by pcAW isn't exactly the best there is... So you might consider doing one of two things: Set up a VPN tunnel and let your roaming users connect through that (this could be most anything, including pcAW)... I'd probably use OpenVPN for this (http://openvpn.sourceforge.net/), or use a plain ssh tunnel for VNC (you should be able to do pcAW through that too... I think:-)... something like "ssh -L 590X:localhost:590Y user@remotehost ..." where X/Y would be the "VNC display numbers".
In either case you'd need think of where the tunnel endpoint should be (machine inside the LAN, or on the firewall... outside).

But you could just make rules to pass it through too, without any tunneling:-).

Though I agree in principle arn0ld, pcAW should be OK. If Rob doesn't find this out for you teera, I just might take a look tomorrow (when I have (hopefully) more than 4 minutes to spend on this:-).

its har id he is trying to reach all computers att the same port because you can´t forward 1 port to all computer just 1 port to 1 other computer. So they have to use a port range to reach the computers.
like:
1100                  computer1
1101                  computer2
1102                  computer3
..                       ...

But if that works for you i can give you an example of how to do it.

What I have done in the past is use PuTTY (http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty/download.html) from an external Windows system to create an SSH tunnel to my Linux computer (which needs to be running sshd).  Then forward an arbitrary port number like 8888 or something (you can use the PC Anywhere default).  You forward your local port (localhost:nnnn) through the tunnel to the ipaddress of you internal system (xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:nnnn).  Then I use TightVNC (http://www.tightvnc.com/download.html) to connect through the tunnel.

This not only creates a connection from your client PC Anywhere system through the linux box to your host PC Anywhere system, it also creates an encrypted tunnel from the client system to the linux box (it is unencrypted after it leaves the linux box on the internal side of your network).  Using TightVNC though, is encrypted all of the way... and double encrypted through the ssh tunnel.

To reach multiple systems, you can do something linke what da99rmd suggests.

localhost:nnn1  --> ipaddress1:nnnn
localhost:nnn2  --> ipaddress2:nnnn
localhost:nnn3  --> ipaddress3:nnnn
localhost:nnn4  --> ipaddress4:nnnn


This should work for you.  It works fine for me.
