pcAnywhere- Review

Quotes from PCMag review:

Symantec's pcAnywhere 11.0 is best thought of as an industrial-strength
remote-access tool. The product supports a rich array of authentication
and security options, including the ability to create a serialized
installation that requires both the host and remote machines to have
the same security code.

pcAnywhere's sophistication comes with some complexity,
however. We had to alter our firewall settings to pass through
pcAnywhere packets to our assigned host and use DynIP's useful service
to track our host's dynamic IP address so that we could connect. (Six
months of DynIP service comes bundled with pcAnywhere.) If you can deal
with such complexity, pcAnywhere is a solid choice.

pcAnywhere is an excellent product for system administrators, with impressive features and speed. For less tech savvy people, GoToMyPc is probably a better choice.
