    Hi @leewilmus

    Thank you for your enquiry. 

    Can you clarify, what happens after the authentication process? If you see a blank window, this means, that your webserver is not configured properly.

    Please see the following manual for more details:

    TeamViewer IoT connects you to a web interface running on the remote device to control a machine connected to your device. 

    If you want to have full remote control (desktop access) of the dietpi, please install TeamViewer Host from

    Please do let us know if you have any further questions and we will be happy to assist you.

    I’m having a similar problem.... ( I’m a novice) that the TeamViewer iot deb file that I installed seemed to work but didn’t ask me for the TeamViewer permission part? I have the desktop icon installed but when I double click it loads with the command box and then dissapears with no TeamViewer codes?
    I’ve tried uninstalling and reinstalling abd using code I found to do an update. Tried the Linux 32/64 but deb files that both appear with a box saying ‘package cannot be found to perform this task’ any ideas ?
