TeamViewer is a simple and fast solution for remote control, desktop sharing and file transfer that works behind any firewall and NAT proxy. To connect to another computer just run TeamViewer on both machines without the need of an installation procedure. With the first start automatic partner IDs are generated on both computers. Just enter your partner’s ID into TeamViewer and the connection is established immediately.
TeamViewerÂ can be used to facilitate business collaborations, remotely access a second computer, or help distraught relatives diagnose and cure computer problems. Along with being free for noncorporate use, it gives users precisely the tools they need to share screens securely, send files with a minimum of hassle, control access rights, and even flip which user has control.
TeamViewer also is VNC compatible and offers secure, encrypted data transfer to maximize security.
The software can also be used for presentations, where you can show your own desktop to a partner, e.g. to present a software solution.
