is just a box with the right operating system (like Windows 2003 server edition or Linux or Novell) and the right application software (depends on what it has to offer, a mail server will run other software than a database server or a print server) in a network. So that's what you need: box, OS and security software, server software, network connection. And, of course, enough knowledge to get everything connected and working. And that seems to be something you're missing at the moment, frankly speaking.
No IT manager with any sense at all will require his employees to use home servers for the companies need. Everything he needs should be on company managed servers, safely stored in a company room or in a professional data center. So that's a part of the story that I don't believe.
And surely you don't need a server to run pcAnywhere. That must be a misunderstanding. Here's some info on the program: http://www.pugh.co.uk/Products/symantec/pcanywhere-12.htm
Hope this helps.
