pcAnyWhere set up as HOST on Win2K

Hi!
I thought configureing pcAnyWhere as Host would be a so trivial. Well it seems that it is not as easy as I may have thought, or one wants me to read the whole .PDF to figure out simple answers.

I would like to setup pcAnywhere as HOST access through dial-up modem. I do not wish to use RAS.. please do not recommend.

My questions are very simple, what could I have done wrong that it does not answer the call despite the HOST configuration setups as copied form the template MODEM from HOST panel. I can launch the host mode and runs fine. When I dial in I get ring-no-answer and the modem is not siezed.

Seconldly, I could not see anywhere in pcAnyWhere the settings for number of rings requierd to answer. I guess, I am relating to WinFax produict for this type ofsetting.

Hi westclox,
When you look at the properties of your host file, you should see the option box for your modem under the "Connection Info". You need to make certain that this box is checked.


Hope this helps!

Seeing as my comment did not actually correct your difficulty, I should not be awarded points. I did not see your response to my comment. It appears I missed the notification e-mail telling me you had responsed. I apologize for not getting back to you.

Because I was not of assistance to you, I will post a request in the Community Support TA of this forum requesting a Mod refund your points to you and delete this question.

In and case, I'm glad you resolved this issue.

Cheers!
