Anthony, I too am watching this thread with great interest. It seems to me that an early version of TV blocked file-transfer for the free version but this is no longer the case. I routinely use TV to move a gig or more of data from the field behind our farmhouse to the computer IN the farmhouse via a range extender connected to the router and sitting at the back of our deck (in a weather proof plastic box).

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?
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.

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.
