The pcAnywhere Settings - Windows policy offers "Full Control" and "View Only" settings. Unfortunately, it is not possible to set both "Full Control" and "View Only" settings within the same pcAnywhere Settings policy—either one or the other may be selected. In addition, the architecture of pcAnywhere Solution allows only one policy per target computer, not per-user. Therefore, if the "View Only" setting is applied, it will be applied to all remote users who initiate a remote control session rather than a select group of remote users.
The pcA QuickConnect program is found on the Notification Server, all managed computers which have the pcAnywhere Agent installed, and all non-managed computers which have installed the ActiveX control when initiating the Remote Control option within the SMC. The pcA QuickConnect program overrides the "View Only" mode which is set on a host computer via the pcA Settings policy. For example, if a managed computer with the pcAnywhere Agent is set by policy to "View only" mode, and a Remote Control session is opened in the SMC, the remote user who is connected through the SMC will be in "View only" mode. On the other hand, if the remote user were to use pcA QuickConnect, he/she will have Full Control over the keyboard and mouse of the host computer.
To implement this work-around for the situation where you want to allow some users to only have "View only" and other to have "Full Control" access of a computer:
