Team viewer not free

The free version of Teamviewer does not allow remote control of the desktop. At least not in the latest version 6.

Team viewer not free

Teamviewer is free for non commercial use. And it does allow you to have complete remote control of the remote user's desktop. I know. I use it a couple of times a month to support friends and family with their Mac and PC problems.

In other words, it does allow you to provide free remote support for non-commercial use.

But it does not yet provide free unattended remote access for Macs. (It seems to provide this for PC's but I have not used it).

The original post describes a Script that the person who wants support runs. After the script it run, a person can provide remote support using VNC.

Teamviewer is very similar. The person who wants supports runs the free QuickSupport Module. After it is run, a person can provide remote support over a SECURE connection for free for non commercial use. Works great for Mac's and PC's (and now Linux boxes).
