I have pcAnywhere installed on a computer. The version of pcAnywhere is 12.1. My computer is running Windows XP Professional with SP3 and all the latest updates.

I have pcAnywhere going into host mode automatically upon starting Windows. Is there anyway to make it so that the computer user is NOT able to cancel out the host? Perhaps requiring a password or whatnot?

I've tried adding a password to the "Protect Item" tab under properties, but that doesn't seem to stop the host from being cancelled.

Everytime I try to log into a certain computer using pcAnywhere, I can't get in. I have to call the person on the other end to reset their host mode. But I have a feeling the reason I can't get in is that they might be taking their computer out of host mode so I can't log in to see what they're doing.

Any suggestions are appreciated.

thanks,
mike.

I don't think its possible.
However you can hide the icon which for most people means out of sight, out of mind:
