Ability to disable ALL encryption except for the credential exchange during a remote session.

It would be nice to be able to control this in the policy for the Altiris solution but if it had to be an option in Quick Connect that would be fine also.

Check out the following. By updateing a component on your quick connect remotes (the help desk or who ever is needing to run the remote side of the equation.)

Also there is a new version of pcAnywhere solution that I understand can have the default moved to no encryption (for the session authentication is still encrypted)

If you find this post helpful please give it a thumbs up!
If you find that this solves your problem please mark it as the solution!

This article TECH174261 is exactly why I'm requesting this but...

There is no version of this fix available for pcAnywhere Solution 12.6 SP2.

Then on the second piece the new update.  In the new update there is no way to disable encryption period using quick connect but they supposedly fixed the problem and it is supposed to no longer be an issue running encryption.  This is something we will be testing out in a few weeks.
