Registry Home > Software > pcAnywhere

TCP/IP Broadcast Mode (pcAnywhere) (All Windows)

Use this setting to turn off or modify pcANYWHERE32's broadcast options to limit network traffic when the remote browses for a host.

If this is set to '0', only the hosts specified in Applications Options - TCP/IP host list will appear in a remote's TCP/IP browse list.

If this is set to '1' the default, pcANYWHERE32 sends 254 UDP packets per network. This setting is best when accessing pcAnywhere TCP/IP hosts through the Internet and on wide area networks. However, this option does send the most TCP/IP packets on the network.

If this is set to '2', pcANYWHERE32 sends one UDP broadcast packet per network. However, if the router filters broadcast packets, you will not see pcANYWHERE32 hosts across the router.
