i found a funny thing about pcANYWHERE. when we use pcANYWHERE remote control client to connect the host running pcANYWHERE, at first the statu bar appears "pcANYWHERE connecting..." ,then the login window will appear; but if we press "Cancel" before the login window appears, the pcANYWHERE service will be crashed. We can't connect the host via pcANYWHERE client any longer.

if host running pcANYWHERE 9.0, We can restore the service by the following steps: telnet host 5631 appers: } Please press <Enter>...

then press Enter We can connect pcANYWHERE now :)

if the host running pcANYWHERE 8.0, you must stop the pcANYWHERE service and restart it: net stop awhost32 net start awhost32
