When a pcAnywhere host dialup modem is "waiting for connection" from a remote modem, i.e, "listening," would that prevent another application on the host machine from being able to automatically dial out (using RAS dialer) when it needs the modem?

Thanks for your help.

Yes, PCanywhere basically "hogs" the modem, preventing it's use by other Apps.
