Hello. We are a one AW shop without 24 hour staffing. We would like to be able to dial into our AW from home, in order to access Monitor ICR, make script changes, etc. Wondering if anyone else is doing this from home, and if so is it through PC Anywhere or by what means. Thanks for any input.
Yes, we use pcAnywhere to access our AWs and PGs. It can be a slow process at times if you're on a dial up connection, especially if you have to scroll down a Configure ICR screen on through a script. I also believe that there was once an issue with pcAnywhere version 9 and the PGs (only version 8 being supported) but I'll leave that to Cisco to comment if that is still the case. The one thing we found made a huge difference to make sure that your # of colors is set relatively low, otherwise your screen seems to refresh forever. Do you have specific questions?
Bill - thank you for your reply. Do you have PC Anywhere set to monitor for TCPIP and modem calls both? Must be a separate host monitoring for a modem call, correct? Also, thank you for the tip to set the # of colors low.
What we have is a modem at each PG and one AW. We dial up into one of these devices and then use pcAnywhere to telnet to the appropriate device we really want to get to. It is a little cumbersome/slow, but it does allow for a large amount of redundancy in case you have a troublesome modem. We also use a straight telnet session from our AW to the various PGs/devices during normal business hours. Is this helpful?
I have been experimenting with PC Anywhere remote control profiles today, and have not figured out how to properly connect and telnet to our different machines. Unfortunately I am no PC Anywhere expert, and have very little experience with telnet applications. Was able to get a C: prompt on a PG, but could not do terminal emulation. If you have time to explain it to me, I would appreciate it. You may email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
