    • Unlike TeamViewer, it's not a centralized solution, dependant on servers owned by some company that might go out of business eventually, and contrary to what some people say, setting up VNC connections isn't complicated at all (inside the same subnet it's trivial, across NAT-ted subnets it only requires some port forwarding, voila, done). TeamViewer-like software should be taken into consideration only by computer-newbies in my opinion. AtoshiDec 2016 Disagree   Agree

Negative Comment by Bricolas
about TeamViewer Dec 2016

Since the last v.12 update of this week, the version 9 is not longer available on the TV website.
If you are running both versions on your PC (9 & 12), don't update the 12 before doing a copy of the TV9 installation folder.

This note is of course for TV Pro versions. For free use TV12 should be always the best solution.

Here starting a small revolution

Positive Comment by miqueltaule
about TeamViewer and RealVNC, LogMeIn, ISL AlwaysOn Nov 2016

Hi

Since last 3 years I've been developing a brand new remote desktop software that works like team*iewer , using id and password and just connect. It supports multiple clients (customers, servers..) and multiple viewers (support staff).

The gateway server can be hosted on premise :) he he yup! your own server , bare metal - state of art - out of the box solution. (win-linux-mac-android..)

me

At this moment works on Windows only. Works really fast , faster than team*iewer and other similar software, cause I am using real video codec techniques , multi-threading multi-core cpu latest advantages and other blazing core engine features and it is already supporting unattended remote connections (severs,remote computers..), I've been working in this for the last 15 years, so yes, I know what I am doing :)

I've developed it using Delphi Firemonkey (outstanding!) , my first enforces had been covering the windows platform and my next upcoming plans are covering Mac osX, linux, android and iOS.

The current gateway (server) it's also available in win, linux, android.. , it's is also supporting network balancing, ssl, encryption,..

I need beta testers :) and also want finding a reliable experienced and well known software seller partner that wants to sell and distribute around the globe cause I prefer developing than selling as I am not a company.

Msg me on private

Here starting a small remote desktop support revolution on my little desktop J , support me

At this moment the software it's available in english and spanish, but it can be translated into N languages in a easy manner.

Best regards

Mike

about TeamViewer and Chrome Remote Desktop, Microsoft Remote Desktop Nov 2016

I was recommended this software by my friend. It is free, good for my business and personal purpose. Don't go for any paid apps before using this. I would suggest using this without any hesitations! Better than Microsoft Remote Desktop or Chrome Remote Desktop.

about TeamViewer Sep 2016

Ever since the breach to TeamViewer's security, and how long it took them to acknowledge the problem, and how they even handled the problem once they finally did acknowledge it, I've been trying to find an alternative.

I may just bite the bullet and pay LogMeIn for a personal account.
VNC is super insecure as is RDP.
I've used NoMachine in the past on my Linux boxes and it works smoothly once configured - but I've never ran it on my Windows PC's.
The other problem is if I am on the road and my wife tells me there is a problem, remoting in isn't so easy without opening a bunch of ports on your router/firewalls.

Update cycle of 6 months making life time purchase useless.

Negative Comment by funvill
about TeamViewer Jul 2016

Beware of this product.

After the first ~7 days of using the TeamViewer product, they will cripple the product and do there very best to annoy you into purchasing it. Once you purchase there "life time, one time purchase" everything will work fine for <6 months before they release a new version (every six months for the last 5 years now). After the update when you send your customers the older version that is compatible with your version of team viewer, the first thing your customers will see when launching the product is a notification to update. making their version not comparable with yours.

Its not a life time, one time purchase. its a ~$800 every six month purchase per seat. ($8,000 for 5 years)

Beware of their licencing scam
