Port Compatibility with Legacy Versions (pcAnywhere) (All Windows)

pcANYWHERE32 8.0 hosts and remotes can connect to earlier hosts and remotes without any registry changes. You may want to turn off compatibility to limit network traffic or allow third party applications that have registered the ports that earlier versions of pcANYWHERE32 7.x and pcAnywhere 2.0 were using.

If compatibility is set to OFF, then the pcANYWHERE32 8.0 host opens one TCP (TCPIPDataPort) and one UDP (TCPIPStatusPort) port. Remotes query and try to connect to one set of TCP and UDP ports.

If compatibility is set to ON, then the pcANYWHERE32 8.0 host opens the TCP port defined in TCPIPDataPort and port 65301, and the UDP port defined in TCPIPStatusPort and port 22. Remotes query and try to connect to the ports defined in the registry and ports 65301 and 22.
