Starting and Stopping pcAnywhere Service from Command Line

I sometimes need to stop and restart the pcAnywhere service from a command line, but do it so rarely I usually can't remember the exact name of the service. You can see the names of services on a system by using the net start command. Issuing it without any arguments given to it shows a list of available services on the system. If you use the find with it, you can filter the list of displayed services to see just the name for the pcAnywhere service.
C:\Documents and Settings\administrator>net start | find /i "pcanywhere"
   pcAnywhere Host Service

Knowing that it is "pcAnywhere Host Service", you can then use net stop "pcanywhere host service" to stop the service and net start "pcanywhere host service" to restart it.
