Amazon.com Review

Remotely accessing computers--whether from the next desk over or in aremote office thousands of miles away--is an essential part of business life. Keeping things running smoothly and safely, Symantec's pcAnywhere 10.5 allowsusers to work where they like without worrying about slow file transfers ormalicious hackers. The package is designed for two sets of users: help deskstaffers who want to watch what their clients are doing or even take overoperations remotely, and mobile professionals who need to access files or runprograms while far from their desks.

Installing and setting up the software can be tricky for novices, so most usersshould have competent IT staff on hand to take care of glitches. Once installed,it's easy to remotely control machines or quickly drag and drop files via cableor modem using the simple, intuitive interface. Essentially, the remote machineopens a window into the host computer to watch or take over its functioning.While this may take a bit of adjustment at first, it quickly becomes secondnature.

The security features for pcAnywhere are strong, varied, and impressive,including basic authentication, roaming network search for unauthorizedconnections, and comprehensive logging. IT professionals will appreciate therebootless install feature, which lets them put the software on employees'computers transparently. Remote access should be safe and painless, andpcAnywhere 10.5 is both. --Rob Lightner ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars NOT FOR SERVERS!But great for what it was made for
OK folks, let's get this straight.PC-Anywhere (or any such remote-control software) is NOT for servers!(I am a MCSE certified Systems Engineer with over 15 years of experience in large network environments...trust me when I tell you this).Remote-control software is also not the best solution for setting up remote-access for several network users.

PC Anywhere is great for what it should be used for -- an individual getting in to control his/her personal PC.It will work well over dial-up or broadband speeds, and has deacent security built in.

This new version does not seem to bring a lot to the table over older versions, but overall still a very solid product for remote DESKTOP control.

But please, if you feel the impulse to put PC Anywhere on a server, stop and go find a qualified systems administrator who can tell you the RIGHT way to support remote Windows servers.

1-0 out of 5 stars Never changes
You would think that a product would improve with time -- but no, not pcAnywhere! It is, always has been, and probably always will be deeply flawed. I installed this product on two Windows 2003 Servers. On one of them, the host service kept failing whenever I tried to initiate a file transfer. On the other server, file transfers worked fine but the visual display was a distortion of black and white lines. It's amazing -- every single version I work with has some problem that keeps me from being able to move it into production. And version 10.5 is no exception. Save your money!

5-0 out of 5 stars Saved my company a lot of $$$$
Being a Systems Engineer for our network users, I love this product. It has made my life so much easier. Instead of walking the end users through some steps over the phone, I just log in and take care of the issue. Here's where the money savings comes in... I no longer have to send a computer in for software issues because someone couldn't follow the instructions and my company doesn't have to pay to fly me to the different sites. The only issue I have ever had is with 10.5 and XP. It always installs fine, but it leaves an item in the tool bar that you can't close (more annoying than anything else). I imagine vers. 11 will fix this. Over all I give this product a BIG thumbs up!

1-0 out of 5 stars Install PCAnywhere 10.5 on Windows NT at your own risk.
I recently got a new home computer with Windows XP on it.I had currently been using Windows 98 and had PCAnywhere 8.0 running on it as well as on my PC at work running with Windows NT 4.0.It ran perfectly for years, however the only version of PCAnywhere compatible with XP is 10.5..So, I got this program and decided to load it at work as the documentation said it ran with NT. BIG MISTAKE!!!!Program installed fine, but when I went to reboot my machine at the end of the night it Blue Screened on the reboot.Then it continually rebooted and blue screened.Couldn't bypass it.Tried starting the machine in VGA mode.No good either.Blue screen.Went to Symantec site and there is a known bug with NT and 10.5 that can cause a Blue screen due to some video driver crud.Bottom line, their fix involved installing parallel version of NT on machine and doing all sorts of manual stuff with the Registry.Send my Machine off to company LAN department.Guess what. MACHINE IS TRASHED.Unrecoverable.The have to reimage the entire box.Everything on my machine is gone.Nice of Symantec to (NOT) warn me before I installed about potential problems with NT 4.0.If they had I would have kept my 8.0 on my work PC.Bottom line, I have been without a machine for a day, all my work is lost and I have nothing by disdain for this software.DO NOT install 10.5 on an NT machine if you value your PC.You have been warned.

2-0 out of 5 stars Slow, slower, slowest!
I've used PC Anywhere in all its iterations. As a professional software analyst, I used to require that all my clients purchase a copy.

But not anymore. My biggest beef is that even when both the host and remote connections are high speed Internet, this product responds too slowly. When using this product, I can click with my mouse, go to the bathroom, get a second cup of coffee and pet my dog before the command will take effect.

I much prefer using WebX or VPN as a tool of choice for remote support.

On the plus side, remote support after hours, while slow, is relatively painless. ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Upgrade from 10.5 to 11.0 was BAD choice; no updates
I am a systems integrator and have been supplying clients with PC Anywhere for several years for remotely monitoring chemical and industrial processes.This involves animated HMI software and it has always worked fine.When using ver.11.0.1, I have found that the animations will not automatically update when the host and remote are connected over a local network connection using fixed IP addresses.The same software works fine over a dial-up connection.I called their tech. support and received absolutely no satisfaction.I guess it's back to 10.5 till something better comes along.

2-0 out of 5 stars Clunky Upgrade
There is a definite downturn with this new release- screen draws are noticeably slower and simply starting the application takes longer.The new interface has the task-based side bar found in newer applications, but it adds no benefit while robbing me of valuable screen space - the old toolbar at the top was much better.I applaud Symantec's fixing odd behaviors (non-invasive, such as strange 'quick' popups to handle internal routines, etc), and I appreciate their attempt at making the user experience more consistent and smooth, which they did, but the overall value of the product has dropped.For the core features I use (connect, control, end session) the performance has dropped- and I have no need for the new features.I'll be selling this on ebay... right after I go back to the odd but faster 10.5.

1-0 out of 5 stars I regret upgrading
I upgraded several systems from 10.5 to 11.0 and have found that the new version does not work nearly as well as the old version.My biggest complaint is that in cases where the host computer has a dynamically updating screen, the remote computer may not receive updates at all making it look as if the host computer is either stuck or is still processing something when it has in fact finished.

There is an interface change that added a navigation panel to the left of the remote display that oftentimes makes the entire window too large thereby forcing me to scroll through windows that I didn't have to scroll through using the old version.The addition of the 'Remote Management' tools would be helpful if they worked properly.The command line tool very often didn't respond properly at all, making it not worth attempting to use when I can just open a command window through the remote window.

I am going to have to go through the extra work of uninstalling 11.0 and reinstalling 10.5 on several systems.Very disappointing!

2-0 out of 5 stars Step backward from 10.5
I regret spending the money for the "upgrade" from 10.5.PcA 11 no longer shows time remaining for file transfer, nor does it show transfer speed.It hangs, giving a "Cannot create directory" message for no discernable reason, where there was no problem with 10.5If 11 has some advantages, I find nothing that does me any good.It has a different interface, but I don't see that as either better or worse. I'm going to remove it and go back to 10.5. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Good for most remote control uses on a LAN
I've used the Timbuktu line for quite a few years now and have had good success overall. I recommend it highly for people who want remote control on local area networks. What truly stands out with this product is that it runs on all Windows computers (95 and above), as well as MacOS computers. Timbuktu 2000 brings some nice features for Windows platform computers. I've seen a few small quirks here and there on Win 2000, but nothing major. Overall, a good product! ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

The built-in Windows Direct Cable Connection (DCC) tool allows userstohook up two PCs and transfer data between them. But this arcane application isdifficult to get working, even on systems with the same operating systems.LapLink, the company that made a name for itself with its notebookconnectivityproducts, has brought us PCsync, an easier-to-use version of DCC that includesspeedy USB transfers for Windows 98 systems and above.

Installing PCsync takes a few steps. You might be required to install JavaVirtual Machine (included on the CD-ROM) if it's not installed already.Additionally, to use the USB cable that comes with the product (it alsoincludesa serial cable for transfers involving older systems), you need to install theUSB drivers as well. But after a couple of reboots, we had our systems--oneusing Windows Me and one using Windows 2000--hooked up and ready to go.

PCsync uses a split screen that lets you browse the contents of both PCs usingeither system. File transfer is as simple as drag and drop from one window tothe other--you can also use right-click menus to send files from one system tothe other. Using USB to transfer files is a boon to any user who has everwatched files drag their way from one system to another via a serial cable.Whencopying large files, we were able to get sustained transfer rates of more than400 KB per second--it took only nine seconds to transfer a 4 MB file. PCsyncalso supports many Internet storage sites, letting you easily transfer filesbetween your system and the online drives.

PCsync includes a Copy My Files wizard, which walks you through the steps oftransferring all your documents and data files from one system to another. Forexample, if you purchase a new PC, you can install PCsync on both systems,hookthem up, and then use this wizard to update the new one with all your personalfiles from your older system. And for those users planning to keep bothsystemshooked up, PCsync's SmartXchange feature synchronizes folders on both PCs,automatically keeping the same file versions in each.

We would have liked to see better documentation with PCsync--all the helpfileswere on the CD-ROM, with only a skeletal installation and user's guide printedon the CD jacket. But the software does a slick job of attacking what canoftenbe a monumental task--after we made our way through the installation process,file transfers were never easier. --J. Curtis ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Difficult to Get Running and Horrible Technical Support
I recently purchased PCSync 2.0. In order to get the software running, it necesitated several calls to LapLink's technical support line. In each case, their representatives were surly and discourteous. When I contacted the manager of technical support, I was told that they would no longer assist me. At that moment it became very clear where the A-OK for the technical support department's behavior stemmed from. In order to run the product takes an extensive amount of reading through manuals and help files. All-in-all PCSync is far too difficult to operate and their technical support problems are insurmountable. Seekers of file transfer software would be better advised to look at another product.

1-0 out of 5 stars Out of Date -- Doesn't Work
First of all, there's a PCsync 2.0 which Amazon doesn't offer at this time.Secondly, if you're looking for a product to move files from an old to new computer as I was looking to do, don't bother with this product.Spend your money on a Zip drive or use your CD burner drive to transfer files.The only useful help documents are on the website, there are no manuals and the CD-based help files are of the generic "make sure your computer is on" variety.The USB drivers are installed, the program displays them, but can't connect them -- aaargh!

2-0 out of 5 stars Forget it!!!!
After 2 nights of attempting to get this product to work, I finally attempted to call customer support. I used the online chat feature with a support technician. Instead of giving me the information that I needed, they sent me on a wild goose chase, hunting down tech note after tech note. While I like the idea of online chatting with a support rep, this was far from helpful. One of the most important steps in setting up the connection is to make sure that once you have installed the product on both PC's, you must then share the files. I was never able to find this in the Quick Guide. This should be the first thing that the online support should tell you and not send you chasing after technotes. I was never able to get the transfer working with the USB port, so I had to use the serial port. The program initially indicated that the total transfer would take a little over 3 hours. The time would slowly decrease, only to increase again. The total time indicated never went over 3 1/2 hours. However, the total time that it took to transfer about 750 mg was just under 24 hours.Would I use this again? Only because there really is no other choice when you are trying to move files from one PC to another. I just think that this product could be great, but it has a long way to go.

1-0 out of 5 stars Wait for the next version...
I spent many hours trying to get this to work, but was not successful. I tried all the fixes available on their web site, including downloading a free version upgrade (v1.5).Still no success.

I have been a LapLink user for many years, but that product hasgrown so much with features that I don't need (and grown in price), that I had decided to stick with the old version.

When PCsync came along I jumped at the opportunity for the faster USB transfers.. but it is not to be. I'm back in the old version, which remains virtually flawless.

I have to say, the company responded to my e-mail enquiries and the product has an excellent satisfaction guaranteed policy: 100 days, 100% satisfaction, 100% money back.

Waiting for version 2.0 ...

1-0 out of 5 stars Warning:Can't say I could get it to work either.
I would consider an alternate product, I am sorry to say.I got this product from Amazon.com, and, although I have not tried to return it yet, only hope I can if I am under 30 days (wish me luck ).

How did I reach this point?I was enticed by how easy and useful it was to sync my Handspring Visor with the computer.I bought it hoping my laptop and my desktop would become the best of friends.I installed it on one computer with WindowsME and AOL5.0, and it was easy.I attempted to install it on another desktop with Windows98and AOL6.0, and although the installation was easy, it always created GPFs when I tried to run PCSync.In consultation with customer support, I've installed this (with their ministrations and suggestions) a lot of times now (more than 10), and still have yet to get it to work one the Windows 98 computer.

Customer service was notable for the following:I contacted PCSync,and left copious messages on the board they run to offer customer service.To make a long story short, customer service 1) oftentimes did not answer my postings on the board.2) had a _long_ wait time in excess of 20 minutes when I called them long distance on multiple occaisions3) before I was ready or willing, closed my account on the board, without giving me a definitive solution.Note well:my tone, both in writing and in voice, was consistent with this message.To be fair, at this writing, they say they will "have a senior technician get back with you" when they have a solution, but their reticence at communication so far. . .Well, you can figure it out from there.

Nope, although there are other products out there that work and work well, this is not one of them.Take your hard earned money, register Winzip, and transfer your data files via another route.It's cheaper, quicker, and, unlike with this product, predictable.

I do hope that someone out there gives due consideration to synchronization between palmtops, laptops, and desktops.If someone can come up with "universal synchronization" between these three devices, they will be rich.Documents to Go, also available via Amazon, does it between a computer and a palmtop, and some programs try to do it between a desktop and a laptop, but, whoever does it between a laptop, desktop, and palmtop, will fill a niche that ever increases in an increasingly mobile computing world.

4-0 out of 5 stars Long Time User
Four stars, mostly because I have always liked Laplink, and have used it since the "DOS Days".A problem I am having now though, is that my transfers are stopped before they are completed. The error message says the transfer is stopped because the path (or is it the file name?), is too long.I have Win XP on both machines.Once it stops I don't know what was, and what was not, synchronized (updated).If this problem "is real"(and not unique to my setup), then my rating becomes "zero".This problem totally defeats the purpose of the software.Also, I cannot synchronize against my external storage device (Maxtor) because file names are too long (the Retrospect program that comes with the device can, though).

1-0 out of 5 stars Abandon All Hope Ye Who Enter Here
This is one touchy software package. I've used LapLink products before and loved them, but an upgrade to Windows XP necessitated an upgrade here, too. It's taken a week of support "chat" and emails with support staff to arrive at the conclusion that the reason my machines can't share files is my Ontrack NetDefense firewall software. The solution? "Uninstall the firewall," (and the virus protection and the rest of the SystemSuite), suggests LapLink support even though the firewall provides network settings that are supposed to permit browsing and exchange of files over the LapLink USB connection when I specify it. It wasn't this particular firewall, necessarily; it could be any firewall, apparently. Uninstalling network protection doesn't seem to be a great solution in this day and age. I guess I'll keep wrestling with the LapLink configuration. I'll see if the folks at Ontrack have any suggestions. Otherwise, I own a hundred dollars worth of non-functional sofware and proprietary USB cabling. I'll let you know if things turn out better and a higher rating is deserved.

This product is fairly easy to setup and use and is a great file transfer, synchronization, and remote control tool.I initially had problems with the ip address configuration of the USB cable, but the friendly online tech support promptly got me straightened out.I now use LapLink to keep my work files synchronized between my desktop and laptop computers and it seems to work reliably so far.

1-0 out of 5 stars Forewarned is Forearmed
I am trying to set up to do a transfer from Windows 98 to Windows XP, so had to order the USB cable which took two weeks from Seattle to Las Vegas! Once I got it, I went to the internet doc., and it told me that it does not work with USB 2.0!
There's no mention of this in any of the printed documentation! (ie: You can't get there from here!)
Don't bother reading the printed documentation; it's a waste of time.
The USB cable comes with a software install CD. After getting into the install process, a Windows error message appears which says that if I continued I might do irreperable damage to my machine, so I quit. After going to the internet, I found documentation which said to "go ahead, we have covered that." [THAT'S] VERY PROFESSIONAL!
The unfortunate thing about this whole fiasco is that I know of no other way to move software from one machine to another. The Windows XP product won't do it. (So what's new from Microsoft?!)
I wish Amazon.com had a negative star ranking because this product deserves it!
If you want to talk with 'live' support, it will cost you $.../hr. You can do a live chat, but if you say the wrong thing or ask the wrong question, they stop responding and there is NO phone no. for warrenty support. You must go to the net and spend 2 to 4 hours wading thru the mess of subjects looking for what you need, then hope it works!!

Don't bother sending e-mail to ANYONE ... that also is ignored!This product is 5 thumbs DOWN!

2-0 out of 5 stars Prepare for some frustration
I'm a long-time Laplink user who bought this version with the USB cable specifically to transfer all the data files from my old Win98 computer to the new Win XP machine.I DID get it working, but only after a substantial amount of frustration.

The USB connection didn't work at all when first installed.I gave up and went to the Serial connection only to discover that it was spontaneously disconnecting every transfer after about two minutes.When I went back to solve the USB problem, I found that telephone tech support ...available only by appointment.While the documentation included with the software was useless for troubleshooting and solving the problems, the online tech support (eventually) yielded enough detailed info to get things going.I now (at this minute) have the USB connection working with transfer rates at upwards of 3 Mbits per second.

Oh, I also encountered some files that would not transfer becuase the path was too long.What's that about?If windows can handle the file name, why can't Laplink? ... Read more

LapLink Gold is a network tool that can be used for administration and support by IT departments, or as a communications suite for everyone on your network. The application includes remote control, file transfer, text and voice chat, remote printer use, and remote network connection utilities.

The interface for LapLink Gold could not be simpler to use. Everything is available in the LapLink application window, from permissions administration to drag-and-drop file transfers. Various connection options are provided so you can reach other computers through your LAN, over a modem connection, through the Internet, or over a direct cable connection.

If you are deciding how to allow employees of a small business to connect to the company network from home or other remote locations, this is an easy and relatively inexpensive solution. The LinkToNet option lets you create a dialup link or a secure connection over the Internet to reach your office network. Once connected to the network, almost everything that would be available in the office will be available from the remote location, including the Internet, intranet, office printers, and other network devices.

Along with the application disks, the box contains three different cables that let you connect any two Windows-based computers (Windows 95 and later) without a network card. You can use the included cables to connect two computers via serial, parallel, or USB ports. Through this network you've created you can also set up Internet connection sharing and other network tools in your Windows system. --Elizabeth Wall ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Best product on the market for remote control and file acces
Not only did I get remote control on an XP box BEHIND A FIREWALL, I can access files remotely from Laplink's Surfup service.Service is the key word here, I don't know any other place offering network services when you buy their off-the-shelf product.Laplink runs an ILS server so I can connect to my Laplink PC from anywhere on the Internet, and they run a firewall service so I can get to my home PC - behind a firewall.It's as easy as checking a box and creating a login-entry.

AND they have a Surfup web service so i can access files VIA A WEB BROWSER from anywhere !Beat THAT !

It's simple, it works, I love it.

5-0 out of 5 stars I have Laplink versions on several systems now...
and have been using it for years with zero problems.

Remote control works fine, even over lousy 20K connections, and the "speedsync" feature makes it practical to transfer files in bulk over standard phone lines.

I routinely use it to make "service calls" without leaving my desk, and to perform periodic incremental backups of remote computers.The software's actually overkill for simple "same room" file transfers on Win 9x+ systems, but for a complete remote access package, this is hard to beat.

5-0 out of 5 stars It works for me--that's all I ask!

I have a Compaq Armada Pentium 1590DMT (150 mHz) laptop with 80 MB RAM, and my desktop is an AMD-K6-2 (350 mHz)with 64 MB RAM.Both machines have the Windows ME operating system.They link together with no problem at all using LapLink.I use the parallel ports for the link.I've never had a problem, and the application works exactly as advertised.

That's all you can ask of a product.

5-0 out of 5 stars Easiest communications package to use
I had used PCanywhere for a number of years, but find that product to be inferior in its connections.LapLink is very easy to install and use.Had absolutely no problems in transferring files or using remote control.

1-0 out of 5 stars Laplink, the Long Downward Spiral
Laplink was the first to offer travellers dos software to transfer files from laptop to desktop and make backup up disks that were clones of the main hard drive.In addition, the dos version had a batch file function which could be used to backup only selected files.It ran flawlessly. Laplink 2000 and now, Laplink Gold,unfortunately are not worthy successors to the dos version.My experience is with Win98 and Laplink 2000 and Gold seem to have problems with it.The clone folder function causes fatal errors.Attempts to get help from Laplink support have come to naught.They haven't even bothered to answer my last email. ...
