Ok heres my situation. If what im trying to do isnt possible please tell me so i stop wasting my time on this :P.

So i have a Fujitsu tablet pc and i connect to XT Network via a Sierra Wireless MC8780 HSDPA Modem , internet works fine so its all good.

Now i have a remote pc that i am only allowed to dial into with PCAnyWhere, Is it possible to create a dial up connection via XT network to do this?

If its possible how do i do it and what settings will i need?

I can create a PPTP vpn connection to my server via XT then run remote desktop connection to PC's on the network.

I haven't used PC anywhere since the days we were running windows 95 boxes and using 56kb modems to 12 remote sites with limited success.

We use radmin now which seems to be faster than PC anywhere - just needs 1 TCP port open to the internet and you can use domain authetication for access.

Doesnt pc anywhere also support incoming tcp connections?

I shun it even though one of my clients still uses it - and i set her up for RDP but she still uses the pcanywhere

You should tell the people in charge that if they want you being able to work remotley and more efficiently then they should let you use something like RDP or vnc. Its both more secure and possibly easier for you to use meaning you can fix problems faster.

I dont think the older versions of pcanywhere had much security other than if you were using a private disl up line. Even over a cellphone if it did work it would probably be only 14.4k and be too slow to be usable.
