No option to add hosts on PCAnywhere

Created: 05 May 2014 • Updated: 05 May 2014 | 5 comments


When I try to dial in to a remote PC, I can dial in. BUT I cannot ADD HOSTS, there is nowhere to be found. There is no ADD HOSTS option.

Any ideas please? I am running PCAnywhere version 12.5.5 Build 1086.

One thing as well, the PC I am using is shared by me and my colleague. Everytime I double-click on Winaw32.exe, it points to my colleague's PCAnywhere dialler's path which will then say FILE IS NOT A VALID PCANYHWHERE FILE.  I would like to create my own diallers but I do not know how and there is no option to ADD HOSTS.

2. If you want to create a host file in the host computer so that you can use PCAnywhere for remote,
