Following link should give you specific details for the DG834GT:http://www.portforward.com/english/routers/port_forwarding/Netgear/DG834GT/pcAnywhere.htm

Following should help with your Webcam, though port numbers can vary with different camera software:

If you have any problems with this one, disable remote management, at least for testing purposes. Remote management is effectively a web server, which can interfere with other web services in some instances.

You can look at the link from Netgear website:
http://kbserver.netgear.com/kb_web_files/n101145.asp

You would need to create service (if not already listed), then under Security->Rules you configure the rule for inbound traffic and forward the traffic to an internal server.

Thank you.

Generally following ports are configured for PCAnywhere:
22 UDP
5631 TCP
5632 UDP
65301 tcp

For creating service:
   1.  Click Security > Services > Add Custom Service.
   2. Enter any name you choose for the service [Eg, pcanywhere].
   3. Select whether the service is to use TCP or UDP. If you are unsure, select both.
   4. Enter the lowest port number used by the service.
   5. Enter the highest port number used. If the service uses only one port number, enter the same number.
   6. Please note you would need to create multiple services for allowing all these ports. So you can create pcanywhere1, pcanywhere2,...
   7. Click Apply.

You would also need to create multiple inbound rules to allow all the services created above.

The LAN ip address is the internal IP address of the machine to which you want the PCAnywhere connection to go.

If you would always connect to the machine behind Netgear using some public IP address, put that IP address; otherwise leave WAN as ANY.

Thank you.

Unless you are using a very old version of PCAnywhere you should only need TCP 5631 and UDP 5632
The link provided earlier shows you exactly how to create the service and forward the 2 ports on the Netgear router (with screen shots):
