    well I know how you like your eye candy lynch if you install pc anywhere you will be forced to use the win2k ctrl-alt-del login. but if you have no one to control then no reason for it

    I'm just thinking I can access my pc from somewhere else if needed - and get files or whatever.

    For PC anywhere you need to have the client installed in the client computer. I know that it is also very easy to hijack and/or sniff program even thought it has encryption. I use VNC to control my PC, but I have limited the access to a single IP (since I always connect from that machine).
    I never used NetMeeting for it. Is it posible to use? To remote manage your computer?

    With either method you can just specify where the files are located and create virtual directories. FTP seems a little more secure to me but I don't really know.

    I use XP Pro's built in Remote Desktop Connection cause I didn't want to install any extra software. The Client part is built into all versions of XP and you can download it for the others or even embed it in a web page.

    You only need to open port 3389 and enable remote connections to your PC. Very easy

    VNC only requires a web browser with Java to run That is even easier. And you can set which port you want.
    I like better the TightVNC version. I find it faster. RealVNC is also good

    Yeah but running netmeeting someone has to be here to accept - right? I want to be able to be at a remote computer and get into mine and download programs/ retrieve out of emule IN and such without anyone being on this end

    I don't think that you want PC Anywhere for what you are looking for.
    I don't have clear what you want, but it seems that you want to access your files anywhere, right?
    Well, do you have a router? You could have VPN buil-in it. That is a solution. I haven't done it, but I think you can use also terminal services once you are connnected thru VPN (someone correct me if I am wrong. I never tried that)
    FTP would be the easiest solution. for that.
    Then, if what you want is to control your computer as if you were there, you can consider TightVNC (or Real VNC), both aplications are less than 1 MB, and easy to set up. They work as a remote KVM (keyboard, Video, Mouse)
    PCAnywhere is more like a remote sesion. Even thought you are connected remotely is a different sesion, so the mouse and aplications don't move (in VNC you are directly connected). All of these apps will need set up with the firewall/router

    Yes I like TightVNC too, just discovered this the other day, lots of options but best feature is the Web Interface.

    Is is not ethical to install the server section on customers' computers ??

    I only have a D-link 614+ router. I don't think it has anything extra.
