Re: Remote desktop software weird behavior

So as expected I received an email from TV this morning :


Thank you very much for sending your self-declaration of personal use to us.
We have successfully reset the TeamViewer ID you submitted via the form provided earlier, and we acknowledge that you are using TeamViewer for personal use only.
With your signed declaration, we took additional steps to make sure your TeamViewer ID remains reset.”



And it goes on to say that it can be revoked if they detect commercial usage….

I've used TightVNC for a decade plus with no sniffing/clouds/harassment.

The problem with RealVNC (free version) is that it is "Cloud" based only. I'd rather have a direct connect over local lan, mainly because I'm in a rural area (at 4,100 ft ;-) and ISP is over uW with data metering.


While I agree $100 for Win10Pro doesn't seem like much, there's still the danger and hassle of having to upgrade the whole OS. 


And the question wasn't answered - do you need Pro on both host and controller?
