VPN and Pcanywhere problem

VPN and Pcanywhere problem

I am having trouble finding and also keeping a PCanywhere connection.  Here is the setup.  A remote computer with a public ip address establishes a VPN connection into his company network.  From there he connects to a workstation within the company LAN via PCanywhere.  Now the problem:  Sometimes after making the VPN connection the user cannot see the workstation via PCanywhere and sometimes he can.  When he does see it and gets in, it will boot him out every so often.  When he can't see the computer via pcanywhere he also can't ping it.  He can open up Network Neighborhood and see the computer but when he clicks on it, it says the computer is inaccessible becuase the Network is busy.  So for some reason that host workstation becomes hidden and than will become unhidden.  Does anybody know any reason for this?  
Additional Info:
Remote Computer running Win 98
Host computer running Win98SE
  Thanks in advance for any advice
