  9. Hi, thanks for this explaination.

    If possible, can u go a little deeper in the program and show how to connect to a computer without a person behind it?

    What i need is to remote connect to my pc at home, after entering a password. I created an account for teamviewer, but one of the pc’s not show online towards the other once.

    Also difficult to add a private password for each computer in the same group. This is not clear in Teamviewers manual and user guide.

    Hope you’re able to make it understandable

    Thanks in advance

      I guess you are looking to connect your home computer from different remote location. Well, this is possible in teamviewer to connect to your home computer from anywhere without any one present on your home pc….

      1. In Teamviewer, Go to Extras –> Options –> General.
      2. you may see below an option something “Incoming LAN connections” change it to accept –> It may ask to set password (Set your password) and Done..

      Now, you can connect your home pc remotely… while connecting your home pc it may prompt for password.. enter your password which you set in teamviewer.

  10. I really like your writing style, fantastic info , regards for posting : D.

  11. it is also useful for noncommercial
