Symantec’s PCanywhere is a remote solution allowing users to connect to computers and servers from a remote location. This program will work with Windows operating systems, Linux and Mac OS X.
PCanywhere allows users to access files on their office computer from home. If you happen to be working on a project at home and need information from your office computer, PCanywhere allows you to get those files. You can even print those files at home if you wish.
With PCanywhere you can be halfway around the world and access files on your home or office computer. It’s like having any computer you work with at your fingertips at all times.
Another huge advantage to this program is the capability to get technical support from the Help Desk or Administrator with the person helping you able to see what configurations are on your computer. This advantage alone cuts down tremendously on the time it takes to troubleshoot hardware or software problems.
PCanywhere is great for home use too. You can transfer files between computers for example, if you have both a laptop and a desktop PC. Instead of emailing large files or worse, having to break up those large files so they can be emailed, with PCanywhere you can easily transfer between computers.
Family members who often call on each other for troubleshooting purposes are benefiting from PCanywhere. By being able to access the other computer, time and headaches are cut to a minimum.
PCanywhere comes with technical support and a user manual that can be easily accessed online. It’s user-friendly and easy to install.
