PC Anywhere requires a static IP address. So using dynamic address my cause problems.
Try using to a host name.

You need to configure your router to forward the appropriate pcAnywhere ports to the internal IP address of the workstation as well. So, for example, if your router has a public IP addy of, your router IP addy is and your workstation IP is, you need to forward the incoming pcAnywhere traffic to The commonly used ports for pcAnywhere are 5631 and 5632. You can, however, custom configure these if you want by changing the settings in the pcAnywhere program preferences.

Hope this helps!

If PC Anywhere seems too complicated here, and it is really, just try LogMein. It is free or cheap and really easy.
