Symantec pcAnywhere is an application that provides support to users who need to remotely access another computer and give it various commands. The app must be installed on both computers in order to work and afterwards, users can create a connection between the two PCs. This can be done with the aid of a login key and a password, the latter element being automatically generated whenever the tool is launched.
After users create the connection with the aid of Symantec pcAnywhere, they can start browsing the contents of the other computer in a window that will replicate the desktop of the target PC. Users have the possibility to activate a drawing tool so that the person whose computer is controlled can see what the other person is doing on their computer.
Symantec pcAnywhere allows users to manage multiple sessions and the desktops will be tabbed with easy access. File transfer can also be initiated through the aid of this app and users can drag and drop files between the two desktops. A transfer bar appears and users can easily see the progress. Multiple authentication types are available and users can use any of them if they have to create secure connections.
