Till now I was doing job remotely with resource on remote pc but there will better future if my idea or question should be performed like above written.

    Best regards, Jozef

    Hi @Jokri

    Thanks for your post.

    I think your newly opened topic in the TeamViewer General board is a better spot to discuss this idea/question since I think this is more related to TeamViewer than to TeamViewer IoT.

    Or am I getting your idea wrong?

    Thanks and all the best, Esther

    Presumably, I could use this to connect all my devices and access any of them remotely.  My question is awfully basic; but, I'll ask anyway.  I only have to be at one device and the others can be unattended right?  They must be turned on, right? And the only requirement is to have TeamViewer on them all?  What keeps others from being able to access my devices remotely?

    Hi @cml,

    Thank you for your question. 

    It is correct, if you want to control your devices remotely, you only have to be at one device and the other device is unattended. The unattended device should be online or should at least be able to start up via Wake-On-Lan. The unattended device should have TeamViewer installed and running in order to establish a connection. 

    Unattended devices need to be assigned to a TeamViewer account, which is done during the installation of the agent / TeamViewer software. Once the device is assigned to your account, you can connect only from your account to the device, other accounts will not be abl to connect to the unattended device unless the account assignment is changed again. 

    Hope, that helps. If you have any further questions though, please feel free to get back to us anytime.
