Thread: E-125 and PC Anywhere
02-01-2001, 02:28 AM #1DSWGuest
Is anybody using the Casio and PC Anywhere? I want to be able to dial in and get work e-mail, but our firewall prohibits using the Casio directly and hooking up via our eRAS service. Firewall prevents Outlook rules wizard from automatically sending copies to a POP3 account, so that doesn't work either.
Now wondering if I can use PC ANywhere to dail into the work laptop (which I understand I would need to leave on) to access the LAN firewall connection to be able to see the mail servers. Any ideas?

Casio? I'n the iPaq room?! Clutch the pearls!!!
Seriously though, I do not believe that PC Anywhere has a PPC client. You might want to look at VNC. It does not have 128-bit encryption, but it will allow you to do what you want. It is slow over a 19.9k wireless modem, but it beats logging around a laptop. If your company is running Citrix on NT Terminal Server, you have hit the motherload! It is fast and allows you to use PC anywhere from the terminal server. Good luck!

Yes I use PCAnywhere CE on the E125 and it works fine. You can find it if you search CNet.com downloads. Symantec no longe supports it but I installed it and it works great. It will not create an Icon so you need to make your own shortcut but the program loads with no problems. I set up a dialup and it worked great. Let me know if you can't find it as I might still have the download. It was still up there a week ago.
It is pretty cool controlling your desktop from the Pocketpc and works pretty well. I dialup and remote control my desktop at work to email myself files at home. I also dial in and read my email from the Pocketpc.

How do you remotely call your laptop computer? I have a 56k modem for the Casio, but our work does not have analog lines in our offices? Can you obtain the IP address of the laptop, and connect that way? Thanks again.

I currently use my modem to dial in to a computer that has pcAnywhere running in host mode withe an analog modem. I also connect from my desktop at home by using my cable modem to start a VPN session with my NTServer at work and then opening a PCAnywhere tcp ip session to connect to my work computer via its IP address. If you have an analog line going into an NT server at work then you could do the same thing by starting a VPN via your modem and then a PC Anywhere session via TCP IP. Without an analog line at all you need a
Network card and a method of connecting to the internet via Cable or DSL. You also need the same internet access on the server side.

Not sure I understood all of what you said, and I'm going to be out of the office for about 5 days so can't try it until I get back.
This will be a stupid question, but I need to be running a version of PC Anywhere on the laptop, don't I? Installed the CE version on the 125 and it works relatively well (the screen doesn't resize). Made an internet connection on the E-125 and ran IPCONFIG on the laptop (NT 4.0) to obtain the IP address (we run through a DCHP). But couldn't establish a connection between the Casio and the host IP address--I later determined because I don't have any version of PCA on the host.
But, assuming I get it somehow, it should work if I establish an internet connection on the Casio via the Modem and then use the IP address to hook to the host, right?
Alternatively, is there any program that anyone is aware of that will send a duplicate copy of an Outlook98 inbox message to a POP3 account. Our corp. security guys have disabled the rules wizard method of transferring messages outside the system automatically.

You need to have PcAnywhere running in Host mode on the computer you are dialing into or connecting to. It you are trying to go in via an IP address, you would set your PCA Host to be a host in tcp ip mode. When you try to connect to the IP address it will authenticate and you should be remote controlling your laptop.
