Features Quick Connect Applet:
  • Very intuitive and intelligent access to frequently used functionality
  • Preserve authentication so connecting to the same resource again is just one click
  • Automatically deploy host . If the machine that technician is trying to connect to does not have pcA host installed, then the app will automatically deploy a pre-configured host and establish connection
  • If pcA services on the host have stopped for some reason, the app automatically starts the services and then establishes connection
  • Native Whiteboard Support:
  • Two-way communication between technician and end-user using standard drawing tools allow either user to highlight items on the screen
  • Logging, Reporting, and Notification:
  • FQDN of computers in session, IP addresses, logged in user names, keyboard/mouse status changes
  • Additionally chat conversations are also logged
  • Logging to NS database allows detailed reports and helps meet Compliance requirements
  • Smartcard Authentication:
  • Supports all PC/SC compliant smart cards (standard on newer versions of Windows)
  • Multi-Monitor Selection:
  • When the host has multiple monitors configured, a user on remote side can choose to view any one or all monitors at a particular time during the session
  • In addition, up to eight monitors on host side are supported
  • Thumbnail View of Active Sessions:
  • When multiple sessions are open, a dedicated tab displays thumbnails of all active sessions
  • User can directly jump to a session by clicking on the thumbnail
  • Primary and Secondary Authentication:
  • Earlier versions of pcA supported only one type of authentication to be active at any time. 12.5 additionally allows Local\Administrator group to be added to other authentication types
  • Therefore, if a host is configured with a pcAnywhere user, then enabling secondary authentication will also permit authentication of all users belonging to the Local Admin group
  • Host Invitation Improvement:
  • pcAnywhere simplifies the process for users to request help from an administrator by using a host invitation
  • When a user needs help, they can choose to send a host invitation
  • The host invitation will automatically populate their SMTP mail client

    Beware, this product is not the complete application. Overstock has the wrong photo leading you to believe it's a complete package. This is just back up media if you lose your CDs so buying this is useless if you want a copy of pcanywhere. Of course I figured this out after I opened it so I will have fun trying to return this.

    There are other probucts on the market for the same price or sometimes free. I would rather use pcAnywhere because It always works the way it should and is easy to install.

    I was apprehensive because of the cost. I assumed that the product was not as advertized (for that price). The product is exactly want I wanted though, it's fully functional. I called Symantec getting info. and they said it was a full product but without support. Fortunately, I've used earlier versions (since DOS) so none was required. 100% happy with the purchase.
