To add on to (or branch off from) this question, does anyone have any
experience with WindowsXP Remote Desktop? Any specific security concerns
with this built-in software? I've read that you can increase the encryption
to 128-bit, but by just doing this is it sufficient enough or is a VPN also
necessary in this situation?

If you must use PCAnywhere, use it through a VPN. MS W2K has native support
for PPTP.

Hi All,
Looking at deploying pcAnywhere on the internet facing interface of a windoz
2000 server for remote management and would like any feed back as to:

- the vulnerabilities of the pcanywhere application
- can the login be brute forced

any other feedback is appreciated
