PCAnywhere 10.5

By LAShel596 ·
Almost 10 years ago I used PCAnywhere to have the ability to open into the files from my office computers while i was at my house. I want to be able to do that again. I dont know much about the operations of Linux and Unix. I am trying to teach myself slowly. Are there any other programs that may be better for my AMD Athlon XP 1600+ ?

I don't know of any software that's better than PCAnywhere, but you might also take a look at Proxy. I don't think that Proxy has as many features and functions as PCAnywhere, but it also doesn't require nearly as much overhead.

Hope this helps!

I have a Linux server that is used by a friend from a dial up connection. We use pppd and samba and he is able to use the Linux machine as if it was on a local network. He uses a windows workstation and maps the Linux server as if it were a windows drive. He can then run software as if it were local (albeit slowly). I use both Linux and windows work stations to do the same. The same results can be achieved using a VPN and the internet. You would need a Linux machine at the office for this to work.

Hope this helps.

PcAnywhere works great on windows, but if you are trying to find an equivilent for your linux box, use SSH. I run this server on my linux box at home and connect to it with my windows pc from the office. Once connected, I can launch any app thats onmy linux box. Also, if you are connected via cable or dsl, you can have multiple simultaneous connections to your linux box. For a windows client to your ssh, I like putty. Go to google and do a search each on ssh and putty. You'll really like it.
