Technical question about TeamViewer remote access/remote office

Q: Technical question about TeamViewer remote access/remote office

I asked a question in another thread wanting to know if there were any good free alternatives to programs PCAnywhere or GoToMyPC. Boy did I ever get more than I expected in TeamViewer that EAFiedler suggested.

Now I have a technical question about how TeamViewer works. It connects to remote systems across the internet not by an IP number that I enter but rather by an arbitrary nine-digit number assigned to the system when the program is set up. It connects so quickly that I know it cannot be scanning every IP address on the 'net looking for a TeamViewer connection at every one of them. So, I have deduced that there must be a server out there somewhere that stores TeamViewer information.

Does anyone know enough about this to confirm this and/or explain it to me somewhat?

Next question: What about security? Are there any security issues I should be concerned about, other than the obvious, of course?

I have tried TeamViewer remote access and find it really easy to use, but it doesn't have a built-in text chat and I would find have a text chat open as I am working on someone's computer woul be very helpful. )If anyone knows for sure if Zolved remote access has a built-in text chat please reply to this post).

Anyway, back to TeamViewer - I thought maybe I could install yahoo chat and then invite my customer who's computer I was working to also use the yahoo chat.

An extra step but should work - what do you think?

I need advice on how to secure my computers from the people I thought were Dell support. They took online access to my Laptop and netbook a Dell Inspiron mini 1012, runs windows 7 starter. The CPU is an Intel Atom N450 has 1gb of memory, I also have a Dell laptop my daughter gave me a few months ago. The dell is only a few months old.
The Dell M5040  AMD E-450 APU  Graphics Radeon HD 1.65. Memory 3 gb,  64 bit system running Windows 7 premium. I wanted to format the hard drive and reinstall windows 7.  I had trouble getting into the bios or into the boot to set the boot order.
 
I phoned a number I thought was Dell support, I got through to a very nice Indian chap who said he would sort all my problems out for me, and then said it would only cost £131.00.  The alarm bells were ringing by now but I had let him have remote accessto the Laptop thinking it was Dell (I know). The company is called Techvedic, they said I would have a 12 month “Technical support”. They put a document on Laptop. Only I really do not want them in my computer again.
 
 At the time I said I would have to check my bank as I did not have that sort of money, he was keen that I should clear my problems.  At that my point when just as I was telling the guy I could not afford it (by now I knew this was not legitimate)  my friend walks in.  He hears me talking with chap on phone and promptly offers his credit card.

Hi all,

I am using TeamViewer to remotely control a netbook laptop that has a low resolution display (1024x600). This is kind of problematic for a lot of websites and software these days.

Since the display is closed, there's no reason why the resolution should max out at the native resolution of the PC.

Are there any workarounds for making the PC have a "virtual display" or does TeamViewer have a way to shut off the internal display, treat remote as a monitor, and revert when disconnected?

Open to alternatives besides TeamViewer, but they need to be free.

Netbook is running Windows 7 Home Premium, so I don't think Remote Desktop Connection is an option.

Thanks!

Hello, I'm an aspiring geek / tech and have recently been working with TeamViewer 7. There are two other sites with which I establish connections, so that I may run basic PC maintenance (i.e virus scanning, registry cleaning, etc.).
Recently though, I've been having trouble connecting to one of the sites. The computer at the site can connect to each other perfectly fine (all three computers run TeamViewer); however, I cannot "see" the remote site's screen. I can establish a connection with the remote computer perfectly fine, but I can't actually view it's screen. After too much idle time, the connection terminates.

I am new to this website, so i am not sure if this is where I post this question. I work for a small CPA firm. About 12 of us here at the office. We are currently running Windows 7. Our Tech Guy has switched the whole entire office to a Remote computer over the past year. Everytime we all come to work everyday we log onto our Desktop computer and access a Remote Computer to do our work. We run programs like Quickbooks, Lacerete, Outlook, Etc.

We are constantly having errors! issues printing/network/even just using the internet is slow. Our tech guy insists that remote is easiest way for our office to run. I believe he did it because he is lazy and didnt want to have to come in to fix things, so he has the remote computer with him.

I can not imagine why Remote would be a better option if we all have desktop computers at our offices. Why should we have to work from Remote when we are actually on site.

If any one has any information that would help me get the office to move off of remote. We have tax season coming up and I cant imagine going into it with the constant issues we are having daily.

Maybe because "We are currently running Windows 7." It might be better to use an up-to-date server and use your old computers as just workstations ( "remote terminals" ).

Without knowing why this setup was chosen, what the alternatives are, who makes the decisions, what the budget is, etc., I don't know that any of us can really make any recommendations.

Hello everyone. Nube to the forum here.

I have a couple of questions. One regarding Win7 Remote Desktop vs TeamViewer. The other regarding installing Win7 Home Premium on a second computer using the same Win 7 CD I used on my primary computer.
Heres the deal.
I own a small home recording studio, where my console houses two computers with three monitors. My main computer is my Digital Audio Workstation(DAW) and as I am a professional Detailer, it also is my 3D graphics workstation. The other computer is for Midi, Internet, HTPC, and various other things, although both computers are networked through a router and can access the Internet. However, for security reasons, I don't use the DAW computer on the net except to download various upgrades/drivers etc.

Because of ergonomics at the console, I would like to access both computers with only one keyboard/mouse. While doing research on Win7 Remote Desktop, I discovered that Win7 Home Premium will only allow this computer to be a Client, but not access a HOST, while Pro/Ultimate will allow a computer to be a host, but will not allow you to access a CLIENT, which is ODD, as if you pay premium price for Pro/Ultimate, it would seem you would want to use it to access a Client computer, not the other way around. Currently, my secondary computer runs XP, and since Home Premium will not allow my primary computer(client) via Remote Desktop to access my secondary computer because it isn't a HOST, I'm looking for an alterna...

About a week ago I went on a trip out of town and left a box running a game server through Hamachi at home. I have done this countless times and never had a problem. TeamViewer is loaded on the box and has always connected and ran just fine remotely. However, on this specific trip, TeamViewer simply gives up on trying to connect. The iPhone version brings up an error stating 'Protocol negotiation failed.' The game server application no longer responds either. Also, both the remote and the local machine I am on right now are connected through Hamachi on a VPN. The interesting thing is the remote computer responds to ping, allows me to bring up shared folders in Explorer, and is listed as running in the Hamachi client. What it does not allow me to do is control it remotely in any way. This system needs a restart badly and I have run out of ideas on how to remotely access it. Seeing that I am a couple of hundred miles away, I cannot drive over and restart it in person so easy. Here are some further details:

Remote System:
OS: Windows XP Pro SP3
TeamViewer: Logged in and setup for unattended access - Shows up on my list with a yellow dot.
Hamachi: Connected with direct tunnel
Firewall: Comodo Firewall (older version) - Every program I've mentioned has been allowed through with no issue.

Well I drove back home earlier than expected and fixed the remote computer in person. Turns out the system had run out of memory after being on so long and TeamViewer simply had no resources to initiate, or everything was just timing out from the system taking so long with any request. I'll be picking up more RAM after the 4th. I suppose no one had any answers on how else I could restart the system remotely, but I'll be marking this thread as solved.

Hi. I just viewed Kari Finn's clearly explained Remote Desktop Connection on Win10 and how to connect to remote computer, thank you for that. Good job! In my case though, I use Win XP Home edition. Do I have to have Win XP Pro edition to connect on RDC to Win 10 host using Hyper-V virtual creation?
Also, if that is the case, how can I reboot my remote computer XP OS and get onto the Start Up Menu page? The keyboard command is released to my Win 10 host computer on start up and I don't have access to keyboard commands (such as F8) until Win XP has been fully booted up. How do I access that Start Up menu page otherwise?
This would be helpful for me to know. Thanks.

A:Remote Desktop Connection Explained - Question remote XP?

Hi Hibs, welcome to the Ten Forums.

You simply cannot use Windows XP Home as remote host, meaning you cannot connect to it using the Remote Desktop Connection. There are some hacks around the Internet but I very strongly advice against them.

(From Remote Desktop: frequently asked questions)
A workaround, in case you have or can find a valid Windows 7 Professional or Ultimate license is to install Windows 7 on a Hyper-V virtual machine, then install Windows Virtual PC and Windows XP Mode on that virtual machine. Works perfectly giving you Windows XP Pro SP3.

If the mouse and keyboard are released by the Windows XP vm back to host, you simply need to bring the pointer on the vm and click to get them back to vm. The F8 keyboard shortcut when booting XP up works then totally normally bringing up the advanced options boot menu:


To release the mouse and keyboard back to host, press CTRL + ALT + LEFT ARROW.

This morning, I heard a nationally syndicated computer expert state that some Chinese hackers were "getting into" Windows based computers through "Remote Access/Remote Desktop" even if the service is turned off. According to the guru, "They will turn it on for you."
Being very concrete, as well as, somewhat dull concerning computers, I find this hard to believe. Could someone, in layman's terms, tell me the circumstances needed that would allow a hacker to take control of someone's system when a necessary service is turned off ??

I have this system with 8gb ram and a 40gb hdd, it works fine locally but when i login remotely it sometimes lags. All other pcs i use TV have no issues, its only this particular unit, i am using a direct gigabit connection no wifi.

I assume the cpu is not powerful enough for remote, but wanted to confirm

A:Mini PC Issues with remote login ie; teamviewer

Yes anytime you log in remote with programs like Teamviewer. There will be lag. Make sure that TV is set to remove background, and set for auto for Quality and to Optimize connection quality. Even across a LAN. There can be some lag when doing certain things. But not that bad. Unless it is something really memory intensive, say like a game.

As for through the Internet. It all depends on connection speed between computers.

Just an fyi. I would put in a larger hard drive on the asus. 40gb is cutting it. You can get a Crucial M500 120gb or even 240gb SSD pretty cheap these days.

Hi guys,

my boss had the idea to work one day at home for special employees at our office.

I have good experiences with the program teamviewer and we would consider buying it since it's only freeware for private use.

In the office we are connected to a server pc and with some help (I'm a beginner in networking, my skills are more related to setting up hardware components) I would be able to establish a remote desktop connection offered by XP itself.

But is it worth it?

I heard that the connection isn't encrypted.

So better using teamviewer or something else?

I have been using "LogMeIn" for over a year and I use the "free" version. Go to www.logmein.com and select the download. You will get the Pro version that will revert to the free version after a designated time.

This is an excellent program and will allow you to connect from home to your work computer via the internet and run all programs as if you are sitting at the office machine. You will actually see the office computer screen at home. About the only things that the pro version will allow that the free version won't is the transfer of files from one computer to the other and printing of office files to your home computer. If that is desired, the pro version is priced reasonably.

The program works through firewalls and into networks without a hitch. You'll need to leave the office computer running. Suggest you install a password protected screensaver and, if possible, a power on password on the office computer. You may also want to turn off the office monitor when you leave the office for the day.

Let us know if this works for you.

Ok my office ordered a few new desktop to replace some really crappy computers. All the new computers have windows XP pro on them. My question is what is the best way to set up a network?

This is how it works here.. there is a server that holds all the offices data. All the computers have to be connected to that server but not necessarily to each other. Once logged in to any network computer the person should be able to access the server without typing in any username/password.

However, I need to set it up so that users can access the server from a remote address (home for example), yet if they do so it should require a username/password.

I'm not sure how the internet is currently set up, but would this require a static IP address? (I think we already have this).

Also, i've always wondered this.. what is the difference between "WORKGROUP" and "DOMAIN" .

Appreciate any advice.. thanks.

Have a quick question about Remote Access:
When I remotely access another computer ( from my home in Orlando to a computer in New York ) which IP address will be shown?
Maybe a better way to ask the question is this, If I am remotely accessing the computer in New York and make a purchase which IP address will the website that I made a purchase from see??
This is really bugging me lol and I appreciate some help and clarification
Thanks

I have been looking at this free remote desktop program at their web site but their instructions on how to use it are pretty weak.

Anyone that has or is using this program to take control of another persons pc for help with their system - I would sure appreciate it if you could give me some info on how to use it.

PS
I have posted this question in this forum area as I have seen postings or answers to postings with regard to this free remote control desktop software.
 

A:TeamViewer desktop sharing and remote control software info needed

Not sure I can give you anymore information than what the website has to offer. If you can detail what you have tried then maybe we can decipher what you are doing wrong.

Have you tried using Zolved at all. Some people find that easier to use.

Hi!  Yesterday, in an attempt to speed-up the process of uninstalling an unwanted trial subscription to Norton Security, I called a toll-free number that I mistakenly thought was giving me Norton, but it turned out to be a company called GuruAid.  While still believing I was dealing with a tech arm of Norton who was helping me swiftly uninstall the unwanted software for free, I allowed GuruAid remote access to my computer.  At a certain point GuruAid demanded a one-time payment of $120 to complete the uninstall-- at that moment I realized that it was not Norton I was interacting with and shortly thereafter I tried to break the link between my computer and GuruAid by turning off my computer.  But when I turned it back on, GuruAid was still there.  I used Task Manager to try to close out the connection, but it popped right back up. So I turned off that computer (I'll refer to that computer, which incidentally uses Windows 8.1, as computer A) and haven't turned it back on.  24 hours have now elapsed-- I've been using computer B since then-- and I want to know if, when I turn computer A back on, the remote access allowing GuruAid into computer A will still be in effect or whether the mere passage of time will have broken the connection.  If the passage of time alone is not sufficient, what do I have to do to break the link between GuruAid and computer A and exactly how should I do it?
 
At this point, although I looked GuruAid up on the int... Read more

A:Urgent question about remote access!!

I don't know what you'll see, but if you disconnect the computer from the internet regardless of what's there it cannot be actively used to do anything.
 
If you have System Protection enabled I would definitely try to restore to a restore point prior to last night.  Then I would try to uninstall Norton yourself, which should be a very easy task using their uninstaller.  If the latest one doesn't work then keep working backward to the next older one, etc., etc., until one does work or you've exhausted all restore points.
 
If System Restore doesn't work, then if you take System Image backups I'd back up all my user data then restore from your most recent full system image backup.
 
If push comes to shove then it's back up your system as it stands in a system image backup, back up your user data separately, then reinstall Windows 8.1.

A friend of mine is having issues with her computer and without looking at what she is talking about, I have no idea what she means.

I have found a program, logmein.com, that will allow me to access her computer from mine. I installed it on my own computer to check it out before I tell her to install it. Well, Norton popped up (downloaded it from logmein's website) to tell me (worm blocking) that it blocked TransScout that apparently was in the exe file.

I looked that up and it apparently is something hackers use to get control of your computer.

So now I need to know...do I need this TransScout thing for the program to work or is this something bad that was put into the program???? I am not trying to HACK maliciously, I just want to be able to help a friend who is an hour away with her computer. I didn't know, though, if I need this TransScout thing in order to do it, though.

Thanks

Very familiar with Log Me In and Windows Remote Desktop for remote access, but I am interested in hearing some recommendations on other remote access products. Use is for software training, application problem solving, machine configuration, and collaboration with users on work related projects, etc. Thanks for any help!

A:Remote Access Software Question

Hey,
 
From experience within working in a company with 3rd party software, these 3rd party companies tend to like using either Log me in or using TeamViewer. 
 
Another one is Join.me.
 
It depends on what you are using this remote software for.
 
Thanks,

For years we have had a contract with Premium Technical Support to keep our household computers up and running smoothly. Our contract has expired and, instead of renewing for $280/yr, we are looking for other options. As we are relative tech idiots, having someone take over remotely and tune it up was fabulous. Suggestions, please.

OS: Win8 64bit (My desktop is Win8, my laptop is Win7. We're dealing with the desktop here.)
Where I am: university network, but these features seem to be working with my laptop.
Things I've checked: allowing services through Windows Firewall (Bonjour, WMC services, etc.)
Allowing remote services in System Properties
Many, many existing threads and non-solutions
How I'm feeling:

None of these features or applications work, and they're all supposed to function differently from one another (e.g. WMC doesn't use the Apple Bonjour service, so it isn't a program-specific problem). I just want to control my media system with my desktop
Is there some obscure service or file or setting that I'm missing that could prevent any remote applications?

A:Remote features not working -remote desktop, WMC, iTunes remote, etc.

Let's focus on "remote desktop". Can someone remotely access it from the internet?
If not: Can someone remotely access it from same LAN?

I was wondering, if you have a good gaming computer, and you have a program like log me in or go to my pc or something, would you be able to like play intense 3D games on like an old windows 98 laptop?

I mean, all the processing power would be computed by the gaming pc and the results would just be displayed by the laptop.

I'm guessing the answer is no. Maybe there would be too much lag for games. I don't know. But that would be cool if you have a good gaming pc and could take your games with you on the go with a cheap used laptop.

A:Stupid question about remote access applications and games

you want to stream games?
in theory its possible - youd have to have acces to a server and have the gaming pc on all the time, perhaps even patching the gaming pc as a server?

but im not sure on the practical issues - sorry.

Hiya

This step-by-step guide describes how to configure remote access policies through the Routing and Remote Access snap-in when Routing and Remote Access is configured to use a Windows authentication provider and through the Internet Authentication Service (IAS) snap-in when Routing and Remote Access is configured to use a Remote Authentication Dial-In User Service (RADIUS) authentication provider. This guide offers only step-by-step procedures for configuring remote access policies, not strategies for implementing remote access connectivity. It is intended for administrators who have experience managing the remote access features of Microsoft® Windows Server™ 2003 operating systems.

Hi

I know there are other products out there, like vnc, ultravnc, teamviewer etc etc, but really nothing beats the sheer speed of remote desktop, it's like sitting in front of the actual computer. I also know about Remote Assistance built into Windows 7.

I would like to use remote desktop to do the following if possible.

1. I would like to know if there is a way, to not lock the host machine that you are connected to?, so the user can see what you are doing?.

2. Is there a way that Remote desktop can be used without logging off the logged in account?, or just use the logged in account?

I would like to use Remote Desktop for a remote helpdesk solution if possible. If anyone knows how to do this things I am asking it would be the people on this board.

A:Using Remote Desktop instead of Remote Assistance for remote helpdesk?

Might be possible to do it. I think you need some sort of security.

Hi, I am using Teamviewer to remotely control my friend's computer and help him with tech problems, and I need to help him with a certain thing that will take a long time. He gets bored of me controlling the computer for so long, so I want him to be able to do something else on his computer while he waits. Can I control his computer in the background while he has a different window open so he can watch videos while I work on his computer?

And if not, is it possible to make a 'plugin' for teamviewer to do this?

I really need this feature, so thank you so much to anyone that can help me with this.

Hello,

I have a Windows 7 network set up and whenever I connect remotely to another computer and lock their input such as their keyboard and mouse, the remote user still has the ability to press ctrl alt del, which then allows them to use their keyboard and mouse. My question is, is it possible to disable the ctrl alt del functionality in Windows 7 so that that Blue security screen does not appear? I have tried lots of remote desktop controlling software which has the option to lock the remote computer input, but they still can press ctrl alt del and unlock their keyboard and mouse. How do I stop this? Thanks!

Best regards,

Jerry
