Can A Mac Talk To A Pc With Teamviewer

Support teams can respond to questions from colleagues or customers by logging into computers in their network using TeamViewer, observing directly what they are dealing with, and either fix the problem or give advice on how to proceed. The host computer can share their screen, send messages or engage through a chat function.

Can A Mac Talk To A Pc With Teamviewer

Taking advantage of the remote desktop capabilities of your Mac with TeamViewer allows you to work remotely, no matter what operating system your work computer uses. Collaborating with people all over the world, sharing screens, and sharing files is made much easier as a result.

Together, we went over the locations you can initiate a chat from on your PC and the features you can access from within a TeamViewer chat conversation, such as remote control, file transfer, video calls, etc.

I have been using teamviewer succesfully between the office iMac and home macpro laptop. SInce recently, I am able to only see the desktop remotely but not able to click or select any folders/files/applications. As if the remote screen is locked.

I'm trying to use the widget on google chrome, but it fails to accept to accept the cookies. It has something to do with inline script of login.js file, or something else, it works on firefoxs only after allowing trackers. How can i be able to use it on my server and let my clients to use it on chrome?

I recently purchased Teamviewer to use with my recording studio computer so I could do accoustic work from my office. I didn't do enough research and then discovered that Teamviewer can't transmit audio from the remote if it's a Mac computer. While I was looking for a solution I missed my 7 day refund period.

After awhile thinking on my problem I've come up with a kind of solution. Rather than using Teamviewer to transfer audio my solution is to use applications like Skype or Discord. By having both computers in a call on Discord I then set up my computer to have it's audio output routed to Discord as an audio input so that it will send audio through the 'call'. So far it's worked fairly well but there may be a bit of latency.

First, I install the "Soundflower" virtual audio device (available for free from GitHub) on the computer I am remoting into. I'm sure Loopback would work also (presumably an easier install with more functionality, but costs $99). Make sure you read the installation notes carefully.

On the computer you will be remoting into, start teamviewer and configure the audio settings (via the audio tab in the preference screen) so that the soundflower (or loopback) virtual device is chosen for the microphone device. This should only have to be done once.

Once you are successfully remoted in, you must turn on voice over ip and unmute the microphone. For whatever reason (perhaps security?), this last step of unmuting the mic is not possible without introducing a tricky workaround.

To turn on voice over ip, select the headset with mic icon in the blue teamviewer control box ON THE REMOTE MACHINE. This will be in the upper right part of your screen. This will open up an audio section. If you are able to view the physical screen of the remote computer, you would see two icons in this opened up section. The first icon is a mic that allows you to toggle the mic on or off. This part of the section that has these two icons is blacked out (again, maybe due to security?) on the teamviewer's version of the remote screen. Clicking where you know the mic icon is doesn't work either.

Provide your ID and Password to the HSU technician currently assisting you. They will be able to see your screen and have temporary control in order to help with any problems you might have.

During the Remote Support session, you will see a small window onscreen with the technician's name and phone extension. By clicking X you can to terminate the Remote Support session at any time.

Searched online and tried all the possible configurations I could find on the remote computer without success. I was able to control that computer before. Not sure what has changed on that computer to prevent TeamViewer control.

It appears that the latest version of TeamViewer can only VIEW a remote Mac until unless you grant TeamView permission to also CONTOL it. As the instructions at the above link show, when you try to use TeamViewer to access a Mac remotely for the first time, you will be presented with a pop-up window asking you to grant the appropriate permissions in the Security & Privacy pane of System Preferences. Granting these permissions did not initially allow me to control the remote Mac so I removed the two TeamViewer items from the Privacy section of the Security and Privacy pane in System Preferences and then quit and restarted TeamViewer. The second time around (after enabling TeamViewer in the Privacy pane again when prompted to do so) everything starting working.

I am on a Macbook pro 2018 attempting to access a friends iMac 2018 remotely both running MacOS 12.01 Monterey (not on the same network), have followed all the steps in the help articles in this post, granted all the permission, then removed them, restarted the app, granted them again, and I'm still unable to control the computer. I am able to login with a password, see the screen, and even use my keyboard to switch apps, however I cannot do anything other than move the mouse (the host confirms seeing the mouse move). I cannot select, or click on anything with the mouse. PLEASE HELP!!!

Before iOS 11 came out, users had to resort to jailbreaking to get a similar functionality on their devices. Thanks to the built-in screen sharing feature, TeamViewer users can now remotely access your iPhone or iPad with ease.

Above is a screenshot of TeamViewer being used to control another PC with TeamViewer installed. One nice thing about TeamViewer is it acts as a proxy to connect both sides of the connection. This way, no firewall rules need to be updated to allow the connections to be opened.

TeamViewer also automatically optimizes the quality of the screen sharing based on the connection quality on both ends. Testing it out with a friend who had a very very slow internet connection, TeamViewer performed flawlessly!

Years ago, I had no problem doing a voice chat with my partner. I think it was after an update that I lost that ability. In the TeamViewer 11 Manual page 61, it talks about transmitting audio to your partner and step 1 says "During a running session, click Communicate in the Remote control window." I don't know what the "Remote Control window" is, nor can I find the word "communicate" anywhere.

I don't think that is what the original question was, but in case you didn't figure this out or someone from google needs the info:You can select multiple items without dragging the selection tool by selecting your first item, then holding shift, then selecting the last item. This works in most Windows programs.So in Excel, you can click the top left cell you want then, while holding shift, click the bottom right cell that you want. So if you click on A1 then, while holding shift, click B10 you will have selected A1:B10 Hope this helps

TeamViewer is available for most desktop computers with common operating systems, including Microsoft Windows and Windows Server, as well as Apple's macOS.[18] There are also packages for several Linux distributions and derivatives, for example, Debian,[19] Ubuntu,[20] Red Hat,[21] and Fedora Linux.[22] Besides, there is Raspberry Pi OS, a Debian variant for the Raspberry Pi.[23]

In recent years, the functionality of the software has been optimized in particular for use in large companies.[29] For this purpose, the enterprise variant TeamViewer Tensor was developed.[30] With TeamViewer Pilot,[31] TeamViewer sells software for remote support with augmented reality elements.[32] TeamViewer offers interfaces to other applications and services, for example from Microsoft (Teams),[33][34] Salesforce,[35] and ServiceNow.[36] The solution is available in nearly all countries and supports over 30 languages.[37]

Incoming and outgoing connections are equally possible via the Internet or local networks. If desired, TeamViewer can run as a Windows system service, which allows unattended access via TeamViewer. There is also a portable version of the software that runs completely without installation, for example via a USB data carrier.[41]

Enter the Partner ID in the box, make sure you have Remote control selected, and hit Connect. After a few seconds, you'll see a prompt to provide the other machine's Password. Enter this and you'll connect within a moment.

To start, open TeamViewer and you'll see two boxes under Unattended Access. First, check the box to Start TeamViewer with Windows. This is important so you don't have to manually run it every time you boot up. It should configure this automatically, but you can set the app to run at Windows startup manually if needed.

Once you've followed the above procedure, that computer is added to your list of machines in TeamViewer. As long as you're logged in with your TeamViewer account, you can connect to the machine without having to input a password from it.

Select it, then click Remote control (using password) to connect without any further authentication. If you choose Remote control (prompt for confirmation) instead, it will ask the other machine to confirm first.

From there, you can use the same tools as mentioned above. Because you're signed into your own machines with the full version of TeamViewer, you shouldn't have any problems with UAC when using this method.

If you prefer not to create a TeamViewer account for whatever reason, you can still use unattended access with a custom password. To do this, open TeamViewer on the computer that you want to access remotely and choose Extras > Options.
