wine doesn't work...i'll try the linux binary compatibility.

I've been using hamachi and then a vnc to conect remotely to a computar behind a NAT, but hamachi doesn't work since they updated the software, i guess...

is very easy , use .exe teamviwet with wine , not install, run temporaly teamviewer >D

It is very easy: use teamviewer.exe with Wine. Do not install it, run a temporary Teamviewer.

How so?
I have run Teamviewer on Wine for some months now without any problem.
Well, I can run it on wine, but as soon as I connect to remote computer it crashes with many errors.
There is another possibility to run TeamViewer.exe form Linux installation. It's in Wine's drive_c/TeamViewer directory.
However it depends on tvwine.dll.so, which is Linux library. Not sure how to preload it in FreeBSD...

Has anyone tried the newest linux binaries available from the teamviewer website? I'd love to switch to FreeBSD on my work PC, but I do require teamviewer from time to time. Alternatives won't cut it.

EDIT: I guess in worst case, I can also run it in a VM. But I would prefer to run it without the use of a VM.

Recently i had to use a remote desktop software to connect to a very far cash register.

I reccomend you to try AnyDesk software instead of TeamViewer for these resons:

1] It has a port in FreeBSD => easy to deploy (and it works)

2] The fact that the company is interested in making the software
available for us in FreeBSD is a good reason to support them.

3] IMPORTANT. If you do not buy a lincense TeamViewer terminates your session after
a time slot and asks you to wait to make a further connexion. In the case of a cash register
that time slot is 5 minutes, untenable ! This does not happen in AnyDesk, great !

P.S. I am not very experienced in this kind of software by to my eyes
what TeamViewer can do, also AnyDesk can. But AnyDesk is more open to non
professional spot users who are not willing to buy a license, at least, not immediately.

Isn't the linux release of teamviewer just a wine wrapper??
No, they do have linux binaries by now.

Sadly it's not my choice to use teamviewer, but I don't feel like convincing and guiding some unexperienced user that already has problems using Windows to install something else. Plus various business partners only use TeamViewer for remote session.
AnyDesk does look nice and simple, but I'm not going to convince people to switch their default software. I guess I will have to rely on VMs for this part.

Sure, take the path of lest effort combined to maximum return, that is the wise thing to do;)

But, your unexperenced user may by annoyed by being kicked out of TeamViewer after x-minutes
and he may call you ... I personaly don't like to be called by users, if they call there are problems.

So if you reccomend AnyDesk, on the long run, you may be more productive, even from the
FreeBSD compatibility point of view or from the fact the the user is not kicked out of session so
he will enjoy a smoother experience.

I am not related in anyway to AnyDesk, I am pushing a bit this product because it seems
to me it offers a better alternative to TeamV at least, for the not paying personal use case.

Also, by memory, the AnyDesk fees are slimmer than TeamV; users of all kind are interested in this;)

I close my ads campaing here.
