Re: OFF TOPIC - remote PC & TeamViewer Home Use version - Times out



I have been following this thread with great interest.

Speaking of TeamViewer, it is something I tried a few years ago when I wanted to transfer a few gig of data from one laptop to another. It was interesting to note that I had my ability for file transfers immediately cut thereafter and, I suspect, the 10 Gb of data involved in the transfer did me in. As an aside, FileZilla is one incredible piece of software for such matters involving a local network (it is also freeware).

Question for the group: of the various pieces of software suggested in this thread, which one has the least overhead with respect to slowing down the remote computer due to CPU, RAM etc when the software is active on it?

Hi (dvj),
    That’s interesting – I wonder why TeamViewer sometimes “forgets” that it is running the FREE version - limited to 3 hour connection before forcing a disconnect. I think that has also happened to me, once or twice. I think the first run after install doesn’t setup the 3 hour cut-off, in its parameters,  until that initial session has ended.
    Please see (below) the email I received from TeamViewer confirming this whole issue of how long a free session keeps its connection.

Dear Sir or Madam,

Thank you very much for your message.

The   FREE version   of TeamViewer has a   “three-hour limit”    on its connections.
This means each session will be disconnected after three hours. However you can always establish a new connection again immediately afterwards.

Please note that  “LICENSED versions”  of TeamViewer do NOT have any time limit on their connections.
If you have a need for unlimited connections, please consider purchasing a license. We will be happy to discuss our licensing options with you and give you a personalized quotation.

If you have any further questions about TeamViewer, please feel free to contact us again.

Best regards,
