My mother refuses to learn how to do anything new on her computer...
Instead of going over and doing it for her, I'd love to use PC Anywhere, Back Orifice, or some other type program. I'm worried about all the PC Anywhere pings and Back Orifice pings that Black Ice detects. If I have one of these type programs, would Black Ice still block those intrusion attempts?
Good question. Same prob here. I have looked at PCAnywhere for remote sys setup, maintenance. I would much rather hook up to someone's machine and do in 5 min what it takes 2 painful hrs to do over phn walk-thru.
Is anyone currently using PCAnywhere? Is it really a good option for installing Win98/95 user's software, upgrades, and doing sys troubleshooting and hard drive maintenance? What configuration and security considerations are involved? I use BlackIce and ZoneAlarm. Have cruised the PCAnywhere site, but didn't get a clear picture.
Give me an example of how you use it and what security tweaks are required. thanx
Back Orifice doesn't block PC Anywhere, I don't know about Black Ice, but you can alwayas disable it. I doubt that it will interfere, it protects you from the Web, not from telephone lines access. She can receive fax, can't she?
