In the Preferences window, on the Security tab, check Require a password to open the Access Server Manager. In the Password box, type the password. In the Confirm password box, type the password again. Click Apply.
Logging Access Server events
You can log Access Server events to the Windows Event Viewer. You can view the event log to review the operation of the Access Server, and then make any necessary configuration changes. For example, you can view the log to determine the number of hosts that were blocked from docking because the maximum limit had been reached. If you notice a significant number of these events, you may want to upgrade your license to increase the number of hosts. You can log events to the Access Server computer. You can also log events to another computer to which you have access. For example, you can log Access Server events to a secure, central computer. The following events are logged:
The Access Server started. A host connection to the Access Server was blocked because the maximum number of docked hosts was reached. Your license agreement determines the maximum number of docked hosts. A remote user failed to supply the correct Access Server password in three attempts. The Access Server stopped.
To log Access Server events to the local computer
In the Preferences window, on the Security tab, under Logging Options, check Enable logging to the Windows Event Viewer. Check Log to the Event Viewer on this computer. Click Apply.
To log Access Server events to another computer
In the Preferences window, on the Security tab, under Logging Options, check Enable logging to the Windows Event Viewer. Check Log to the Event Viewer on another computer.
Managing Access Server Hiding the Access Server from TCP/IP searches
In the text box, type the computer name. You must use UNC syntax.
Click Advanced. In the User name box, type the user name. In the Password box, type the password. In the Domain box, type the domain name. Click OK. Click Apply.
Hiding the Access Server from TCP/IP searches

Remote users must know the IP address or name of the Access Server to connect. To hide the Access Server from TCP/IP searches
In the Preferences window, on the Security tab, uncheck Display Access Server in TCP/IP search results. Click Apply.
Setting up host groups
You can set up host groups to control access to the Access Server and to simplify management of the hosts that are docked. When remote users connect to the Access Server through the host list, they can view the groups of docked hosts and select the host they want to connect to. You can hide individual host groups from TCP/IP searches to protect the hosts from unauthorized access. Remote users must provide the group name to connect to any of the docked hosts that are contained in the group. You can configure the Access Server to require the host computers to dock to a specific host group. Host users must supply a valid group name and the appropriate password to dock to the Access Server. You can choose not to require host computers to dock to a group. Any hosts that do not specify a group name or password are assigned to the Default group.
Managing Access Server pcAnywhere hosts docked to the Access Server
You can set a password for the host group. The host user must supply the password to dock to the group. The group password does not apply to remote connections. Remote users only need to supply the group name to access the docked hosts that are contained in the group. To set up host groups
In the Preferences window, on the Groups tab, do either of the following:
To add a new group, click Add. To modify a group, in the Groups list, select the group that you want to modify, and then click Modify.
In the Group Properties window, in the Name box, type the name that you want to give the group. All group names must be unique.
If you want to assign a password to the group, in the Password box, type the password. In the Confirm Password box, type the password again. If you want to prevent the group from being displayed in the host list when a remote user connects to the Access Server, uncheck Display this group in TCP/IP search results. Click OK. If you want to require hosts to dock to a specific group, check Require hosts to dock to a group. If you select this option, the Access Server blocks docking attempts from a host that is not configured to join a group.
pcAnywhere hosts docked to the Access Server
When a pcAnywhere host docks to the Access Server, it connects to the Access Server and waits for connections. The host can accept only the remote connections that come through the Access Server. To dock to the Access Server, the host computer must be running pcAnywhere Solution 12.5. If a host computer is configured to dock to an Access Server, it automatically docks when Windows starts.
Managing Access Server Docking a pcAnywhere host to the Access Server
