I have a computer that I use in my work. I've installed TeamViewer and I log into it from my home using my laptop. Sometimes the computer restarts for some reason and I won't be able to connect to from home. So I am thinking of making a program that will store the information (partner and password) in a text file and store it in my dropbox folder so I can see it.

How can I do this?

  • Would be nice to say what OS you are using... Linux? Windows? Mac?

  • Why don't you open a TeamViewer account and get the machines to log into it automatically? This was designed for precisely your situation. The Computers & Contacts window will give immediate access to any other machines linked to the same account as soon as they come on-line and with no further validation.

You can set teamviewer up for unattended access. This installs a Windows Service so you can access the computer without being logged in / starting Teamviewer. You can see the exact instructions on teamviewer.com (http://www.teamviewer.com/en/res/pdf/first-steps-unattended-access-en.pdf)

In short, if you open the Teamviewer window, there's a small box for a password for unattended access on the bottom left side. When you fill in the password (Personal Password), you will set up your unattended access.

You can also create a teamviewer account, log in from the application and add the computer to your list. Once you're logged in on another computer, simply double-click the computer from the list and you'll start a remote session.

Again, more info and detailed information on http://www.teamviewer.com

  • I've did that but for some reason I still get the "A connection could not be established. Teamviewer not running on partner". It's working if I log on the server. using Windows Server 2012 and TeamViewer 11.

    You're giving yourself the answer. Teamviewer is working but something in the connection is blocking you. Check your firewall or other intrusion detection system and your basic network setup.
