Unattended (no password needed) connection over LAN

I'm trying to direct connect computers on a home network (router not connected to internet). I succeeded with two computers running TeamViewer (15.37.3) and Windows 10 using the posted directions (https://community.teamviewer.com/English/kb/articles/4618-use-teamviewer-in-lan), but I needed the password displayed on the remote computer to enter at the prompt on the local computer.

Is there a way to direct connect computers over a LAN without needing the remote computer's password? Thanks.
