TeamViewer Remote Connection Process

How would you describe the remote connection process and what are your impressions of it?

While I have used other technologies in the past, like VNC, they don't do exactly what TeamViewer does. If you wanted to use VNC remotely, you'd need to get your traffic through the firewall and take care of securing or encrypting that traffic yourself. Thus, it is not really in the same league of software. You have to bring your own security. With TeamViewer, you are encrypted out-of-the-box.

The remote-control process on a given amount of bandwidth with TeamViewer is faster than with LogMeIn. And it looks better. It looks more like you're sitting at the computer. LogMeIn just did not seem to do as good of a job at transmitting that.

The remote connect process is super simple. As long as the user has an Internet connection and can get on the Internet somewhere, whether they are at home (on their WiFi), using portable Internet (Jetpack), or if they stop in a Starbucks to get on the Internet, I can connect to them. That is what is really convenient.

I have always felt that TeamViewer is extremely capable software and, in my many years of using its remote connection service, it has never let me down.

The remote connection process is totally simple. It's as easy as it comes. We do install the software on field devices, but we also have used TeamViewer's widget on our website. So, if you go to the support page on our website, you can click a link and download a white-labeled TeamViewer app that pops up and gives you a service key that you can fill in. That's an interesting tool. It makes it easier for customers who are not one of our owned assets to quickly download and light up a TeamViewer session so that we can help them with software configuration updates.

The remote connection process is pretty straightforward. Every new computer has a TeamViewer ID and password.
