RemoteDesktop and PCAnywhere

I am in an environment where my development environment and my testing/deployment environments are not in the same location.
I really love PCAnywhere for its file transfer capabilities - it optimizes transfers of files which have not changed very much if at all.
But I use RemoteDesktop to do work on the testing environment for its speed, etc.

However these two tools just don't play well together.
Up until now, I had another machine in the testing environment which was not in use and I would PCAnywhere to it, move files , etc. and then use the files from RemoteDesktop sessions on the other machines.

However, that machine is going away and I am looking for new method.

So my questions are:
1. Has anyone been successful at using PCAnywhere and RemoteDesktop on the same machine?
2. If not, any thoughts? (I tried TeamViewer today and it at least optimized transfers of identical files)

Have you tried LogMeIn?  I find it to be extremely useful.

The consensus of opinions is that RemoteDesktop is best for doing work on the remote machine.
Have been using TeamViewer to transfer files. Not as fast as PCAnyWhere but it does optimize transfering files which have not changed
