Let me explain...

When you access the PC Any32 Host service on the server your client will
access it on a certain tcp port. The later versions of PC Any32 have a
different port setting to that of the previous versions. To test this
theory, copy the two reg files to your server, double-click on newtcp.reg.
Now try and access it from your CE device, if this works you need to change
the port settings on your CE device.
An easier test would be to access the server from another PC on your
network, if access fails then the ports are different. Double-click the
oldtcp.reg file to reverse the change. Please note that no other machines
will be able to access the server if the incorrect port is set for your

I have not done this before since we use the latest port settings, but if
you open the newtcp reg file in notepad you will be able to see the key
values that the PC version of PC Any32 uses. PC Any32 CE does not have these
key values, you can try and add these settings to your registry manually.
The path in CE is
If this does not work, contact Symantec for support.

Hope this helps
