You would need to buy it.  There is no place to download it.

With your pcAnywhere serial number you can download 12.5.5 from  Prior versions of pcAnywhere are not being distributed since the code breach issue earlier in the year.  

In January 2012, Symantec confirmed that pcAnywhere source code was exposed by hackers who posted the code publicly. At that time, Symantec responded with a hot fix to address immediate vulnerabilities. In addition, Symantec determined that the pcAnywhere security model required an update. This update secures pcAnywhere communications for the traditional pcAnywhere product as well as the pcAnywhere Solution, which is part of the Symantec Client Management Suite (CMS).

As a result of the security updates, this new version of pcAnywhere is not backward-compatible with, and will not connect to, older versions of pcAnywhere.

Symantec recommends that customers install the latest version of pcAnywhere (12.5 SP4 or Solution 12.6.7) and follow general security best practices. The latest version of pcAnywhere includes all previous hot fixes and the updated security model.
