PCAnywhere Access server - stopping external remote control

I have setup PCAnywhere Access server and have external machines docking successfully which i can remote control. The only issue I have is that I can't find out how to limit remote control initiations from external machines. If i am external i can configure PCAnywhere on any machine to connect to the access server and remote control machines. Obviously i need the passwords etc but i would like to stop this.

I would like for remote control sessions to only be initiated internally but still allow all my machines to dock to the access server and be remote controlled.

Can this be done?

I don't think this can be done.  You could set up a white list on your firewal or router that is allowing the inbound traffic and if you only put in the IP's for the hosts then the remotes can only come in from the internal side.    this would be nearly impossible because I assume your hosts don't maintane static IPs when they are external.   Now sure if you could white list based on computer name that might work but not sure how to pull that off.
