How to change the IP ports that pcAnywhere uses

Depending on which computer you want to change the ports used by pcAnywhere (Remote or Host), follow the steps in one of the sections below:

STEP 1

Change the TCP/IP ports on the host computer

  1. Start pcAnywhere Manager.

  2. Click Edit > Preferences or click Tools > Options.

  3. Click the Host Communications tab.

    You may have to scroll to the right to see this tab.

  4. At the bottom of the TCP/IP options section, click Advanced TCP/IP Options.

  5. Change the Data port (TCP) and Status port (UDP) to the ports that you want pcAnywhere to use.

  6. Click OK twice.

    You have now configured your host to wait on a different IP port.

STEP 2

Change the TCP/IP ports on the remote computer

  1. Start pcAnywhere Manager.

  2. Click Remotes.

  3. Right-click the remote control item that needs different TCP/IP ports, and then click Properties.

  4. Ensure that TCP/IP is checked in the Connection Items list, and then click Details.

  5. Change the Data port (TCP) and Status port (UDP) to the ports that you want pcAnywhere to use.

    You have now configured the remote control item to connect to a host on a different port.
