Use Computer Name Instead of Caller Name (pcAnywhere) (All Windows)

When this key is set, if a host has the "Prompt to confirm connection" option checked, the host computer's prompt dialog will display the remote's computer name instead of the caller's name when a connection is made.

Open your registry and find or create the key below.

Create a new DWORD value, or modify the existing value, called "ConfirmComputerName" and set it according to the value data below.

Exit your registry; you may need to restart or log out of Windows for the change to take effect.
