Display Host in List (pcAnywhere) (All Windows)

The registry entry allows the host to respond to remote requests for names. Thus, by disabling the registry item, you can hide the host from users scanning the network.

Use this setting so the host will not appear in a remote's list when the remote is scanning the network.

If the remote specifies the name of a host that has the DisplayHostInList option disabled, the host will appear in the remote's list, but the name displayed in the remote's list will not change from whatever the remote user entered.

Note: This item currently only refers to TCP/IP hosts.
