it all depends on your network setup... how is your DMZ setup?  via a router, PIX firewall or what?  we will need to know MUCH more about your setup to answer this?

can clients on your LAN ping the IP address of the www server nic via IP address?

Assuming that you have a "restrictive" security policy on your firewall (allow only services needed, deny all others):

1. for terminal services (RDP) allow TCP 3389 from inside network to DMZ host.
2. for PC Anywhere, allow 5641 (TCP) and 5642 (UDP) from inside network to DMZ host.
