To use pcAnywhere, it must be installed on both PCs - the one you want to connect to and the one you are connecting from. The PC that you want to connect to is called the "Host". On this PC, you need to install pcAnywhere, then open the program and click the "Hosts" button. You need to know how to set the host connection up properly - how you will connect - i.e., through the Internet, dialup to a modem, etc. - and what security settings you want to use. Then, you have to start the host program so that it waits for your other PC to connect to it.

The PC that you will connect from is called the "Remote". Once pcAnywhere is installed on the host and waiting, then you open pcAnywhere on the remote machine, click the "Remotes" button andset up a remote connection using the same parameters (i.e., dialup, Internet, etc.) as you used on the host. You need to read the documentation that comes with the program carefully to set all this up properly before you will be able to connect.Hope this helps!

PS What I've described above is how you set up to actually take control of the host machine and run it as if you were sitting in front of it. The Transfer a File function can be used in conjunction with the host/remote session to transfer a file while you are controlling the remote machine, or it can be used as a separate function by setting up an autotransfer connection that automatically connects, transfers a specific file and then disconnects.

PPS Actually, I just realized that the newer version of pcAnywhere doesn't even include that autotransfer option, so forget I mentioned it. Transferring a file is not a separate function at all any more, it is just part of the full program that youcan do file transfers while you are connected.
