[Solved] Teamviewer 10

Post#1 by ashkenazi » 27 Jan 2015, 08:48

If I install Teamviewer in daemon mode by downloading the tarball, running

Code: Select all

tv-setup
and putting

Code: Select all

/usr/bin/teamviewer daemon start
in

Code: Select all

/etc/rc.d/rc.local
I am able to connect to other machines, but not vice-versa. On the other hand, if I just run the supplied binary

Code: Select all

teamviewer
as a regular user, connection works both to other machines and to my machine running Porteus. What's the culprit?

perhaps incoming connection cant be accepted if TeamViewer is run as root.

Seems like the same Teamviewer bug happens in Ubuntu as well. Since this is not Porteus specific, I'll mark the thread as solved.

To all affected users: do NOT use the daemon mode of Teamviewer, start it as a regular user instead. Both incoming and outgoing connections will work then.
Use the binary from the tarball for unsupported Linux distros.
