Teamviewer 7 Won't Connect

4 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

I used to work with Teamviewer to connect to my home servers over the Internet. This worked flawlessly with previous versions of Teamviewer, but starting with version 7 I no longer can connect to WHS. All other systems (Windows 7, Windows 2003 STD etc) work, only WHS refuses.

A connection is made when connecting Teamviewer to the "partner" and the connection window minimizes, but the Teamviewer connection screen does not pop up.

The strange thing is that when I connect to WHS using a plain RDP session and then also start Teamviewer, it does work and the Teamviewer connect window does pop up.

Does anybody else uses Tramviewer 7 to connect to their WHS? And does it work?

I don't know if this helps, but I had to upgrade all my computers to version 7. Its not compatible with version 6 on either end. I don't use TeamViewer on my server, so this may not be useful. I like TeamViewer, i just never saw much use for it on the server, since I can access it within the WHS framework (RDP/Web)

Hi I use teamviewer 7 on my home server as i can never get the web site connection to work through the internet. I have just tested 7 out as I had updated it both ends the other week as I also use Teamviewer on my mums laptop as they live some 150 miles away so IT support comes this way for them.

Guido - Got the same problem... just installed TeamViewer 7 on my WHS v1 and when I connect from my laptop (running TeamViewer 7 too), it accepts the connection but no remote control window comes up. I suspect a firewall issue somewhere (WHS, Router)? Did you manage to solve yours? Any suggestions from others?

      I was able to resolve the issue by uninstalling the application, removing the app from IIS then reinstalling.
    • WHS replacement device

      Longtime WHS user, in fact still on V1. Now that Windows 10 won't support a connector, are there any NAS devices that will give me the same simplicity that WHS provides for backup like the connector and over network restore? Will a device that runs Windows Storage Server give me the same functionality?  I'd love some recommendations to backup the OS of 4-5 machines at a sub 1k price  
    • Remove OneDrive from Win10
      By WantStuff · Posted
      Hi guys, I have recently put Win 10 Pro on two laptops and connected to a WS2012E R2 domain. I've pretty much got everything working as wanted and am now applying the 'polish'. One of the thing I'd now like to do is disable/remove OneDrive from the clients. I have seen that it can be done using a Local Group Policy, and want to do the same/similar but using a DC policy instead. Can some one point me in the right direction fo this? Local Group Policy instructions: https://techjourney.net/disable-or-uninstall-onedrive-completely-in-windows-10/ Thanks

      To follow up on the above, today I noticed an alert for the server (see attached). Now the second one got me thinking, so I went into the Dashboard, and sure enough there was no users, so then I started the service and my users appeared. Now all I need to work out is why the services are not starting when the server reboots.

      Today I was faced with this problem, WHS2011 had been running find for around 4.5 years. I thought I'd try re-installing the connector software, but got an error after entering the server password.   Now at some point before reinstalling the connector software I restarted the server and also made sure the above was running, and restarted the service anyway. Before continuing with the connector installation I checked the Dashboard from within the server and all my users had come back. Perhaps the Certificate Web Service had stopped prior to the reboot, perhaps it was just the reboot that fixed, I don't know but this may be helpful to someone else.
