vtiger Developer series # 8 – TeamViewer


TeamViewer is a fast and secure application for meetings. As an all-in-one solution, TeamViewer can be used to do some very surprising tasks which you can’t imagine to work on a regular basis. Here are some of the features:

  • Provides remote support to colleagues, friends or customers – Shares your desktop for meetings, presentations or team work.
  • TeamViewer can be run as a Windows system service. This allows you to access your computer even before you log into Windows.
  • Connect to other platforms such as Mac OS X and Linux.
  • Connect from Android or iOS mobile devices to Windows, Mac or Linux computers.
  • Connect to your home computer while you are away and work on documents, check your e-mails or download images from your home computer and edit them.
  • Connect to your work computer while you are away (such as when you are on a business trip and need important information).

TeamViewer works behind firewall barriers, so typically no configuration necessary!

How does Team Viewer work?

If you think of a TeamViewer connection as a phone call, the TeamViewer ID would be the phone number under which all TeamViewer Clients can be reached separately. TeamViewer computers and mobile devices that run TeamViewer are identified by a globally unique ID. The first time TeamViewer is started, this ID is generated automatically based on hardware characteristics and will not change later on.

All TeamViewer connections are highly encrypted and are thus protected from being accessed by third parties.

Installation:

TeamViewer may be installed with an installation procedure, although the ‘Quick Support’ version will run without installation. To connect to another computer, TeamViewer has to be running on both machines. To install TeamViewer Administrator access is required, but once installed it can be run by any user. When TeamViewer is started on a computer, it generates a partner ID and password (user-defined passwords are also supported). To establish a connection from a local client to a remote host machine, the local operator must communicate with the remote operator, request the ID and password. Then enter these into the local TeamViewer to establish the connection.
