did you need to enable wakeup in LAN in the Bias?

OK, 'Bias' = BIOS :thumbright: - now I see what you are asking ....... Yes I had to enable WOL in BIOS although in my case, this was already enabled.

Completely agree, Olly it is dishonest to pretend that you are happy to allow personal use for free and then come up with such a spurious reason for withdrawing consent. It is either free for personal

I also know lots of people who've had exactly this problem with Team Viewer. They've usually moved to Any Desk. If Team Viewer don't want to provide a free service they should stop offering it. Offeri

I wouldn't bother jumping through the hoops, I did this TWICE and on the third time told them to stick it! I now use SolarWinds to wake up my PC and either AnyDesk or Remote Desktop (All three ar

The other night I collected the TV password in the obsy and then came indoors to the desktop.  It told me the password was wrong which is ridiculous seeing as I had copied and pasted it and E mail it to myself, so I presumed that TV had disconnected itself.   

I really could not be naffed to go outside again to collect another password, so I gave Anydesk I try which I said in an earlier post I had installed as a back up, and Bingo it worked straight away.  All you have to do is keep the code for the PC you want to connect to, start to type it and it comes up in the address box, no collecting a new code first like TV.

I am most impressed with it, it works even better than TV which I don't think I will bother to use again.

Team Viewer now thinks I am using it commercially even though I am not. Can't find anyway to send them an e mail or raise a ticket. No Machine works fine. Really annoying though having used TV for years with no problems.

Ditto. TV claims I'm using commercially which I'm not. Deleted TV from all devices and using Anydesk - works fine.

I used TV happily for years until recently.  Most will know that later versions forced an upgrade when one became available.  Because I have Windows XP on my Obsy computer this started causing me major problems - it got to the point where I couldn't run for longer than two or three minutes at a time without having to reconnect, and the latest version I had (15) wouldn't install in XP.  Then I found an old (2011!) installer on my Obsy computer for version 6.  This surprisingly would talk to the version 15 on my 64 bit W7 desktop, and all was go again, except that I always had to reconnect twice  - it would drop out first time.  Then was stable.  But tonight I decided to try  version 6 on my desk top as well.  Bingo!!

Well, almost Bingo except the Android version on my tablet wanted version 7 or above on the Obsy.  Not to be beaten I Googled for version 7, and unbelievably it's still available for free download 😀  Here

 It happily installed on both my W7 desktop and XP Obsy computers, and hasn't so far demanded an upgrade, so if it ain't broke.....  Presumably because my desktop W7 is 64 bit, TV version 7 will also work in later versions of Windows.  Incidentally I have a predefined password set in the Obsy, so don't have to get the new one every time I log on.  In the Options Security Section.

Cheers,

Peter
