pc anywhere

By dbrown ·
I have a Dell pc at home (with pc anywhere for work) which I routinely do the Windows XP updates. I can dial into work ok, but when I try to use pc anywhere to remote my work pc, it can't locate it. The only other thing I have recently done is install the kazaa software which I have removed. I read that Microsoft pulled an xp update due to a problem. I deinstalled the last 2 updates also to no avail. HELP....I need it be on call for work!

First question is can you ping the work PC from home? Or, if there's a firewall, is the firewall configured to allow the PC Anywhere connections?

I can ping my workstation and nothing has changed with the firewall on my pc or at work.

to add to the other comment, try connecting via IP address and not machine name also.

If I use the IP address, I still can't connect.

I have McAfee Firewall but I have attached to my work pc since that it has been installed.

Go the the Services and stop the ICF (Internet Connection Firewall) and set the properties to manual. Try then connecting from work to your home PC. Should do the trick.
