Access PC Anywhere through a Mac?

My dad's thinking about getting a Mac Mini or an iMac for his office to replacing an aging PC. One thing that he uses his current PC for is to access a remote computer running PCAnywhere version 8 via modem (they don't want to put the remote computer on the web for security reasons), and he needs to continue having this access when he gets the Mac.

The obvious solution that I can think of is for him to put virtual pc on his mac and run the pcanywhere client software through that (hopefully it will work), but does anyone know any other way around this? Preferably without doing any major changes to the remote computer.

Thanks

How about a VNC app? I use OSX VNC Server on my Mac and Real VNC Viewer on my PC to remote desktop and it works great.

Would that work for dial-up access? Also, it's the other way around for my dad - remote computer is a PC (running Win95, who knows why) and he'll be accessing it by using his mac.

Using a VNC program is probably not the best solution, because there are other people using pcanywhere to access the remote computer as well.

you can password protect VNC. The risk of getting hacked is just as good as anything else you would use remotely. VNC is probably your best option actually.. as I don't know if Remote Desktop Connection works with Windows 95.(It's been a while)

Although, not sure on the dial-up either.
