TCP/IP settings

Value:
DisplayHostInList
Key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Symantec\pcANYWHERE\CurrentVersion\System
Type:
DWORD
Settings:
0 = Do not display
1 = Display [DEFAULT]
Versions:
7.5, 8.0, 9.0, 10.0, 10.5
Apply at:
Host
 

This setting allows a host to respond to a remote's request for computer name but controls whether or not that name will appear on the remote's list of hosts. This allows you to hide the host from users scanning the network.

If the remote specifies the name of a host that has the DisplayHostInList option disabled, the host will appear in the remote's list, but the name displayed in the remote's list will not change from whatever the remote user entered.

This item currently only refers to TCP/IP hosts.
------------------------

 
Value:
TCPIPBrowseDelay
Key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Symantec\pcANYWHERE\CurrentVersion\System
Type:
DWORD
Settings:
0 [DEFAULT]
1 to x
Versions:
7.5, 8.0, 9.0, 10.0, 10.5
Apply at:
Remote

Controls the amount of delay used to create the remote's browse list. Use this setting when remotes display an incomplete list of TCP/IP hosts in the host list over a WAN or LAN connection. Technically, it adds 0.01 seconds between UDP packets and waits one additional second for the host's response for each unit of delay set.

For example, a setting of 2 means wait .02 additional seconds between each packet and an additional 2 seconds to receive the response from those broadcasts. The default setting is zero.

If you are having problems over a WAN connection, start with a setting of 1. If the setting does not work correctly, increase the number until the entire host list is displayed.

For a RAS connection, start with a setting of 11.
------------------------

 
Value:
TCPIPConnectIfUnknown
Key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Symantec\pcANYWHERE\CurrentVersion\System
Type:
DWORD
Settings:
0 = Use UDP packets [DEFAULT]
1 = Do not use UDP packets
Versions:
7.5, 8.0, 9.0, 10.0, 10.5
Apply at:
Remote
 

UDP packets are used to determine the name and status of a host computer. These packets can be filtered out, typically by a firewall. When this happens, the remote cannot determine the status of a host. If the remote connects to a busy host, the remote will receive a blank screen. The remote can cancel from this screen and make another connection without difficulty. Sometimes, due to the length of time that the browse list updates take, updates will be turned off. By setting this item, you ensure that the list delays will not be turned off due to the length of time they take.
------------------------

 
Value:
TCPIPDataPort
Key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Symantec\pcANYWHERE\CurrentVersion\System
Type:
DWORD
Settings:
15FF (Hex) = Registered Port [DEFAULT]
FF15 (Hex) = Unregistered port used by earlier versions
Versions:
7.52, 8.0, 9.0, 10.0, 10.5 (registered port)
7.51, 7.5, 7.0 (unregistered port)
Apply at:
Remote, Host


Selects which TCP data port pcANYWHERE32 uses.
Version 7.52 remotes always use the value in this registry entry.
Version 8.0 remotes only use this entry if the TCPIPNetBroadcast entry equals 1.

Decimal values of the ports are: 5631 (registered), 65301 (unregistered).

Edit the data value of TCPIPDataPort and enter the hex value of the port you require. For example, if you required port 80 (decimal), you would change the value to 50 (hex).
------------------------


 
Value:
TCPIPStatusPort
Key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Symantec\pcANYWHERE\CurrentVersion\System
Type:
DWORD
Settings:
1600 (Hex) = Registered Port [DEFAULT]
0016 (Hex) = Unregistered port used by earlier versions
Versions:
7.52, 8.0, 9.0, 10.0, 10.5 (registered port)
7.51, 7.5, 7.0 (unregistered port)
Apply at:
Remote, Host


Selects which UDP status port pcANYWHERE32 uses.
Version 7.52 remotes always use the value in this registry entry.
Version 8.0 remotes only use this entry if the TCPIPNetBroadcast entry equals 1.

Decimal values of the ports are: 5632 (registered), 22 (unregistered).

Edit the data value of TCPIPStatusPort and enter the hex value of the port you require. For example, if you required port 83 (decimal), you would change the value to 53 (hex).
------------------------

 
Value:
TCPIPPortCompatibility
Key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Symantec\pcANYWHERE\CurrentVersion\System
Type:
DWORD
Settings:
0 = Compatibility Off
1 = Compatibility On (Default)
Versions:
8.0, 9.0, 10.0, 10.5
Apply at:
Remote, Host
 

By default (compatibility on), pcAnywhere will try to query on port 5632. If there is no resonse on that port, pcAnywhere will query port 22. If there is no response there, pcAnywhere will scan for a response on any available port. Similarly, pcAnywhere will try to connect on port 5631. Failing that, it will try to connect on port 65301. Failing that, pcAnywhere will connect to any host responding on any port.

If compatibility is set to Off, then pcAnywhere will only open or query the registered ports (5631, 5632).
------------------------

 
Value:
TCPIPNetBroadcast
Key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Symantec\pcANYWHERE\CurrentVersion\System
Type:
DWORD
Settings:
0 = Do not browse for the host.
1 = Browse for the host by sending 254 directed UDP packets per network (Default)
2 = Browse for the host by sending one broadcast UDP packet per network. [8.0 only]
Versions:
7.5, 8.0, 9.0, 10.0, 10.5
Apply at:
Remote, Gateway
 

Modifies pcANYWHERE32's broadcast options to limit network traffic when the remote browses for a host.

If set to 0, only the hosts specified in Applications Options - TCP/IP host list will appear in a remote's TCP/IP browse list.

If set to 1, pcANYWHERE32 sends 254 UDP packets per network. This setting is best when accessing pcANYWHERE TCP/IP hosts through the Internet and on wide area networks. However, this option does send the most TCP/IP packets on the network. Over the Internet this can be slow and can cause timeout errors and partial or empty browse lists.

If this is set to 2, pcANYWHERE32 sends one UDP broadcast packet per network. However, if the router filters broadcast packets, you will not see pcANYWHERE32 hosts across the router.
------------------------

 
Value:
TCPIPQueryInterval
Key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Symantec\pcANYWHERE\CurrentVersion\System
Type:
DWORD
Settings:
0 = Turn off
other = Timing value
Versions:
7.5, 8.0, 9.0, 10.0, 10.5
Apply at:
Remote


This entry allows you to adjust the amount of delay in seconds between the network broadcasts used to refresh the host list.
The default is 50 seconds. The minimum setting is 30 seconds. A setting of zero turns off all list updates.

Use this setting to limit network traffic. Sometimes the additional network queries to refresh the browse list will interfere with getting status lights or making connections. If you have a problem getting the status lights to turn green, set this value very high, for example, 1000.

Set this registry item to a high value if you get a message that a known ready host is busy when you try to connect to the host, and direct packets are not filtered. It is especially important to increase this value if the TCPIPBrowseDelay value has been increased, because it is difficult to connect if the network query is going on at the same time.
------------------------

 
Value:
TCPIPWSDataBuf
Key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Symantec\pcANYWHERE\CurrentVersion\System
Type:
DWORD
Settings:
8000 (Default)
other = any number between 1 - 65535
Versions:
8.0, 9.0, 10.0,
Apply at:
Remote, Host


NOTE: This registry entry does not exist in pcAnywhere 10.5. Adding this registry key may cause pcAnywhere 10.5 to not function properly.

Sets the size in bytes of TCP's Winsock buffer. Using a large value may increase the throughput of connections where the delay is large in relation to the bandwidth. This includes Internet, ISDN, RAS, dial-up networking, WAN and satellite connections.

For example, if the delay between two end points is 500 msec (.5 sec), the default throughput will be limited to 8K / .5 sec = 16K/sec. By increasing the value to its maximum setting, the theoretical throughput will be 65535 / .5 sec = 128K/sec.
------------------------

 
Value:
TCPIPHostAdapterMode
Key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Symantec\pcANYWHERE\CurrentVersion\System
Type:
DWORD
Settings:
0 = bind to the default network adapter (Default)
1 = bind to all network adapters
Versions:
8.02, 9.0, 10.0, 10.5
Apply at:
Host

This registry item allows a waiting host to bind to a new adapter, such as a dial-up adapter, without reinitializing the host.
------------------------

 
Value:
TCPIPHostBindMode
Key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Symantec\pcANYWHERE\CurrentVersion\System
Type:
DWORD
Settings:
0 = Use first or default TCP/IP address (Default)
2 = Use TCP/IP address index as indicated by TCPIPHostAddressIndex
Versions:
8.02b (requires patch file), 9.0, 10.0, 10.5
Apply at:
Host

This value allows you to specify whether the host will wait on the first TCP/IP address given by the operating system, or whether it will wait on the TCP/IP address indicated by TCPIPHostAddressIndex.
------------------------

 
Value:
TCPIPHostAddressIndex
Key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Symantec\pcANYWHERE\CurrentVersion\System
Type:
DWORD
Settings:
x = TCP/IP address index to wait on
Versions:
8.02b (requires patch file), 9.0, 10.0, 10.5
Apply at:
Host

This registry item allows you to specify which TCP/IP address index the host will wait on. For more information on choosing the correct index, see the document How to have a pcANYWHERE32 host wait on a particular TCP/IP address.
 

 
Value:
TCPIPRecvUDPBcast
Key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Symantec\pcANYWHERE\CurrentVersion\System
Type:
DWORD
Settings:
0 = off
1 = on
Versions:
9.0, 10.0, 10.5
Apply at:
Remote
 

When on, this registry value ensures that the pcAnywhere remote receives UDP packets sent back to it from host machines. This is a default in pcAnywhere 9.0 and does not need to be added. This resolves an issue seen with pcANYWHERE32 8.0 and Windows NT 4.0 with Service Pack 4. For details, see pcANYWHERE32 8.0 TCP/IP hosts do not appear in remote's browse list or timeout looking for connection.
------------------------

 

Value:
UseWinsock1
Key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Symantec\pcANYWHERE\CurrentVersion\System
Type:
DWORD
Settings:
0 = pcAnywhere will use Winsock2 (default)
1 = forces pcAnywhere to use Winsock1
Versions:
9.0, 10.0, 10.5
Apply at:
Remote


This value forces pcAnywhere to make use of WinSock 1.x rather than version 2.x. This can resolve problems with pcAnywhere making TCP/IP connections based on a computer name rather than an explicit IP address.
------------------------
TCP/IP multicast settings 

Value:
TCPIPMcastDataDelay
Key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Symantec\pcANYWHERE\CurrentVersion\System
Type:
DWORD
Settings:
0 = (Default)
value = delay in milliseconds
Versions:
8.0, 9.0, 10.0, 10.5
Apply at:
Remote, Host

 

This value sets the delay in milliseconds between each send. This is useful if multicast error correction is disabled.
------------------------

 
Value:
TCPIPMcastDataPort
Key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Symantec\pcANYWHERE\CurrentVersion\System
Type:
DWORD
Settings:
0x15ff = multicast data port (Default)
Versions:
8.0, 9.0, 10.0, 10.5
Apply at:
Remote, Host
 

This value selects the port that the multicast data is sent to.
------------------------ 

Value:
TCPIPMcastErrorCorrect
Key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Symantec\pcANYWHERE\CurrentVersion\System
Type:
DWORD
Settings:
0 = Error correction is off
1 = Not implemented
2 = Full error correction is on. (Default)
Versions:
8.0, 9.0, 10.0, 10.5
Apply at:
Remote, Host
 

This sets the level of error correction used on the host. The host specifies which level of error correction the remotes will use. If you set this to 0, you should use TCPIPMcastDataDelay to slow the sends from the host to minimize the loss on slow remotes.
------------------------

Value:
TCPIPMcastInterface
Key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Symantec\pcANYWHERE\CurrentVersion\System
Type:
DWORD
Settings:
0 = Send from to the remote's network adapter
other number = a different adapter
Versions:
8.0, 9.0, 10.0, 10.5
Apply at:
Host


Use this registry item for a multi-homed, multicast host that is not binding to the correct network card. This can be why none of the remotes receive the multicast packets.

Each network card is associated with an IP address. By default, the host sends the multicast packet from the network adapter that the first remote connects from, if the remote uses a network connection. For instance, if the first remote connects over RAS, pcANYWHERE32 sends the multicast packets over the RAS interface. However, RAS does not route multicast packets. In this case, have the remote specify the host's network card address or use the registry setting to force the host to send from a particular network card.

To specify a particular network card, specify its number. For example, to force the multicast packet to be sent from the second network card, set this registry item to 2. Although the network card order is fairly stable, the order may change according to current DHCP and RAS status. To display the current network card order, run WINIPCFG.EXE for Windows 95, or IPCONFIG.EXE for Windows 98, Windows NT, or Windows 2000
------------------------

 
Value:
TCPIPMcastHostNumRecvBuf
Key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Symantec\pcANYWHERE\CurrentVersion\System
Type:
DWORD
Settings:
100 = buffers (Default)
Versions:
8.0, 9.0, 10.0, 10.5

Value:
TCPIPMcastRemNumRecvBuf
Key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Symantec\pcANYWHERE\CurrentVersion\System
Type:
DWORD
Settings:
500 = buffers (Default)
Versions:
8.0, 9.0, 10.0, 10.5
Apply at:
Remote, Host
 
Value:
TCPIPMcastRemNumSendBuf
Key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Symantec\pcANYWHERE\CurrentVersion\System
Type:
DWORD
Settings:
100 = buffers (Default)
Versions:
8.0, 9.0, 10.0, 10.5
Apply at:
Remote, Host


These registry values set the number of receive and send buffers when using an error correction multicast session. For slow remotes, a larger value may lead to less data loss.
------------------------ 

Value:
TCPIPMcastMTU
Key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Symantec\pcANYWHERE\CurrentVersion\System
Type:
DWORD
Settings:
1400 = (Default)
1400 - 10,239
Versions:
8.0, 9.0, 10.0, 10.5
Apply at:
Remote, Host


This registry value sets the Maximum Transmission Unit (MTU) in bytes. The MTU is the maximum bytes that may be sent as one IP multicast packet. The largest supported value is 10,239. Do not set this value below its default of 1400 bytes.
------------------------ 

Value:
TCPIPMcastWSRecvBuf
Key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Symantec\pcANYWHERE\CurrentVersion\System
Type:
DWORD
Settings:
8192 = (Default)
Versions:
8.0, 9.0, 10.0, 10.5
Apply at:
Remote, Host


This registry value sets the size in bytes of the Winsock receive buffer. If error correction is off, set this value to 16384 bytes to minimize loss of data on the view-only remotes.
------------------------

Serial settings

Value:
SerialIgnoreDSR
Key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Symantec\pcANYWHERE\CurrentVersion\System
Type:
DWORD
Settings:
0 = Respect DSR
1 = Ignore DSR (Default)
Versions:
7.5, 8.0, 9.0, 10.0
Apply at:
Remote, Host


Use this item for modems or other serial devices that do not initialize correctly because their DSR (Data Set Ready signal) is not initially set. It is also useful if the modem connection does not have a DSR line. This registry item forces the computer to ignore the DSR setting of the attached modem or serial device. Thus, you can get around the requirement of setting a modem's DSR high.
------------------------

 
Value:
SerialUse56000
Key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Symantec\pcANYWHERE\CurrentVersion\System
Type:
DWORD
Settings:
0 = Do not change 57,600 to 56,000 (Default)
1 = Change 57,600 to 56,000
Versions:
7.5, 8.0, 9.0, 10.0, 10.5
Apply at:
Remote, Host
 

NOTE: Only for Digiboards under Windows NT
Use this value when a serial connection can be made at 38,400 bps and 115,000 bps, but not at 57,600 bps. This value sets the default serial speed from 57,600 bps to 56,000 bps when you select 57,600 bps. It does not affect TAPI serial speeds.
------------------------

TAPI settings 

Value:
UseFirstTapiModem
Key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Symantec\pcANYWHERE\CurrentVersion\System
Type:
DWORD
Settings:
0 = Always error if TAPI ID does not match.
1 = Error if TAPI ID does not match and more than one TAPI modem is present. If only one TAPI modem is installed, then use it if the TAPI IDs do not match. (Default)
2 = Always use the first TAPI modem if the TAPI ID does not match.
Versions:
8.0, 9.0, 10.0, 10.5
Apply at:
Remote, Host


Each time you add a TAPI modem, it generates a unique TAPI Permanent Line ID which is stored in pcANYWHERE32's connection items. If you no longer have a modem with this unique ID, pcANYWHERE32 displays the error message "This modem no longer installed. Please update this item's properties" or "The selected modem for this connection item is no longer installed." This registry value tells pcANYWHERE32 how to handle this situation.
------------------------

IPX settings 

Value:
IPXUseNBSapMethod
Key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Symantec\pcANYWHERE\CurrentVersion\System
Type:
DWORD
Settings:
0 = Off (Default)
1 = Use alternate search method
Versions:
8.0, 9.0, 10.0, 10.5
Apply at:
Remote
 

This registry value enables the SAP method of network search instead of using the bindery when making IPX connections.
------------------------

 
Value:
IPXUseNonSapMethod
Key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Symantec\pcANYWHERE\CurrentVersion\System
Type:
DWORD
Settings:
0 = OFF (Default)
1 = Use alternate search method
Versions:
8.0, 9.0, 10.0, 10.5
Apply at:
Remote
 

This registry value enables the non-SAP method of network searching instead of using the bindery when making IPX connections. Its main use is to redistribute network traffic. The non-SAP method causes the remotes, instead of the hosts, to generate network traffic every minute. This can decrease network traffic where there are many servers and only a few remotes.
------------------------

 
Value:
QueueSize
Key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Symantec\pcANYWHERE\CurrentVersion\System
Type:
DWORD
Settings:
50 (hexidecimal)
Versions:
9.0, 9.0, 10.0, 10.5
Apply at:
Remote, Host
 

This registry value can speed up IPX performance on Windows 9x machines where you cannot run SPX.
NOTE: Using this registry value can negatively impact other protocols you may be running on you machine, making them perform more slowly. Use this value only when absolutely required.
------------------------

Type:
DWORD
Settings:
x = Seconds before assuming print job has completed.
Versions:
7.5, 8.0, 9.0, 10.0, 10.5
Apply at:
Remote
 

Use this setting if a print job is being separated into multiple jobs during remote printing. This item sets the inactivity time-out for the remote printing facility. If there is no activity on the port being captured for remote printing, pcANYWHERE32 assumes the printing job is done and will stop spooling. This may cause a print job to be separated into multiple jobs if there is a long delay during the printing. This DWORD registry item allows you to adjust the length in seconds of the inactivity on the captured port before pcANYWHERE assumes a print job has stopped spooling.

The default is 30 seconds.
