Meh.

Comment by Taigar2073
about TeamViewer 3 days ago

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.

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

now they are basically forcing you to pay, i don't like it anymore, i'll start looking for a good alternative that has a free version. I think they are taking advantage of the users and the fact that it has some many right now.

TeamViewer working hard to charge their free users 1 Helpful

Comment by mikell1102
about TeamViewer Apr 2016

With the advent of Teamviewer 11, they began imposing a 3 hour time limit on connections. So, even when you set your timeout to unlimited, it will close your connection at 3 hours. Of course, this limit goes away if you pay for a "professional" version. This is their way of getting those of us who use TV for personal use to pay for a professional version, which is not going to happen. Thus, TV will lose many, many users, which is perhaps what they are targeting. The only way to get professional versions licensed to a company in this crowded market, is to get many, many personal users, which ultimately gets some people who have purchasing power or influence, to like their software. Forcing users to quit their RDP by imposing a 3 hour time limit on the "free" version connection is not the way into corporate use. And, not so strangely, they never even would admit to imposing a time limit when they came out with version 11, and kept suggesting there was some unexplained issue with my local setup. This all is not a good sign for Teamviewer. I keep all my personal computers at home connected to my one main notebook computer and cannot stand when they timeout at 3 hours, leaving their multiple ads on remote and local machine. I won't be staying with TeamViewer. They have gone down a bad path.

about TeamViewer and Aeroadmin Apr 2016

No doubts this is one of the best apps on the market. BUT the prices are going through the roof.
For those looking for a worthy alternative, you definitely want to use this Small Aeroadmin iconAeroadmin
A sort of TV initial release but 10 times or even more CHEAPER with FREE version for business use.
