Thanks Joe! Yes, that is how I set my password(s) and now I have zero issues locally. RealVNC seems to be another good option. $49/yr per remote machine which is pretty cheap for solid functionality for those who need to connect via Internet.
You are correct, that logging into TV using the local
LAN IP address doesn’t leave the PC site, so it can never intersect with a
“commercial PC site”. This always works, even after you get locked out with
using your (web) PC address registered at TV.
Also, an entire list of hidden passwords can be made
permanent for a device, by going into Extras/Options/Security and defining
permanent Password(s) – or delete them there as well. Thank goodness that TV
didn’t make that more complex than their commercial sniffer.
TeamViewer is pretty good for local IP connection, but
after they started their campaign to unload all their free non-commercial users
with their recent tactics, I decided to start moving myself onto TightVNC, which
seems almost as good as TeamViewer so far, and even has a decent “file
transfer”. Still need more practice with T-VNC though.
