This issue has been solved. See solution.

I have been using for access to a host computer in a volunteer office. Recently other volunteers want to access the host also. In order to accomplish this I have installed pcanywhere (host only) on the host computer and the latest remote pcanywhere software on one remote computer. I have been unable to connect to the host; getting the "unable to connect to device" message. I am wondering if the problem is the software is holding the port unaccessible by pcanywhere? Any suggestions???
