    Do you have a firewall at work, if so you will need to open up port 5631/5632 to allow PCAnywhere connections through

    It sound like it is a server side issue, you could try and restart the PCAnywhere service on the host pc.
    Run the following commands on the server
    net stop "pcanywhere host service" (This stops the service)
    net start "pcanywhere host service" (This starts it again)
    OR if you want to do this through the GUI
    Go to Start->Run->Services.msc->Right click on "pcanywhere host service" and click on Restart
