Environment

Issue



You have a list of TCP/IP host computer addresses that you want to copy to another computer or that you want to save before reinstalling pcAnywhere.


Solution



The TCP/IP list is stored in the Windows registry. You can save this list by exporting the lists to a registry (.reg) file. You can import this file to the same computer after reinstalling pcAnywhere, or you can import it to the registry of another computer with pcAnywhere installed.

To create the registry file:
  1. Click Start, and then click Run. The Run dialog box appears.
  2. Type regedit in the Open box, and then click OK. The Registry Editor appears.
  3. Navigate to the following subkey:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Symantec\pcANYWHERE\CurrentVersion\Remote Control
  4. Select the TCPIPHostNames entry.
  5. Click the Registry menu, and then click Export Registry file. The Export Registry File window appears.
  6. Browse to a safe location and save this entry with a unique file name.
  7. Select the TCPIPRemoteNames entry.
  8. Click the Registry menu, and then click Export Registry file. The Export Registry File window appears.
  9. Browse to a safe location and save this entry with a unique file name.
  10. Close the Registry Editor.

To modify the registry file:
Because Windows will export the entire "RemoteControl" branch, you must edit the file you just created. Otherwise, when you import it into registry, you may change other remote settings.
  1. Locate the TCPIPHostNames registry file with Windows Explorer .
  2. Right-click the file, and then click Edit.
    You will see something very close to the following:

    REGEDIT4

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Symantec\pcANYWHERE\CurrentVersion\Remote Control]
    "AllowConnMultiHosts"=dword:00000000
    "WinSystem"=dword:00000000
    "KeyHand"=dword:00000000
    "Print"=dword:00000000
    "ColorScale"=dword:00000000
    "Synch"=dword:00000000
    "LogicalFonts"=dword:00000001
    "FullGraph"=dword:00000001
    "FullScr"=dword:00000000
    "OptimizeDesktop"=dword:00000001
    "ScreenScaling"=dword:00000000
    "FontName"="Terminal"
    "CharWidth"=dword:00000008
    "CharHeight"=dword:0000000c
    "ShowAltEnterMsg"=dword:00000001
    "RemoteControlToolBar"=dword:00000001
    "RemoteControlSysTray"=dword:00000001
    "TCPIPHostNames"=hex(7):31,35,35,2e,36,34,2e,31,38,30,2e,32,35,35,00,00

  3. Delete lines until the file looks like this:

    REGEDIT4

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Symantec\pcANYWHERE\CurrentVersion\Remote Control]
    "TCPIPHostNames"=hex(7):31,35,35,2e,36,34,2e,31,38,30,2e,32,35,35,00,00

  4. Save the file, and then close it.
  5. Repeat these steps for the TCPIPRemoteNames registry file as well.

You can import this file to any computer that has pcANYWHERE32 7.5, pcANYWHERE32 8.x, pcAnywhere 9.0 or pcAnywhere 10.0 installed. Double-clicking the file imports the contents to the registry.
