Is there any way for me to save local lan ip adresses that I use for direct lan connection to my computers list? I'm using Team Viewer 13 free.
Thank you for posting.
our Computers & Contacts list is saved on TeamViewer server and can only be used with valid TeamViewer account logged in. If you use Incoming LAN connection, local IP address cannot be added into the list.
Morrie is correct.
The computers and contacts list is only designed to work with TeamViewer ID's
LAN connections are only possible by entering the IP address manually into the field, there is no click-and-connect option for LAN in the C&C list sorry. This is also because when switched to LAN only, the software disconnects from our server including the C&C list.
If your concern is with data, the software will short-circuit the connection to become point-to-point if you are in the same network once the handshake is completed.
The only workaround I can offer is that you can create a .bat script with parameters to put on your desktop? You can set an IP as the ID in a parameter.eg,"C:\Program Files (x86)\TeamViewer\TeamViewer.exe" -i 192.168.0.2 -P password123
More about parameters here
I hope this helps.
If you have an internal DNS server and accept LAN connections enabled, you should be able to type the computer name in the TeamViewer ID field
If you just want a list of computer names matched with ip addresses, there are VB scripts out there to do that, but it would remain separate from TeamViewer
The only way I can think of without automated tools in a corporate environment, is to manually rename the host when you add it to your C&C for unattended access
In the example below, change MARK-PC to MARK-PC [IP Address removed by moderator]
The drawback to this is that youre hard-coding the IP. If the machine is setup as DHCP and it ever changes, the information you setup here would become out of date. This is why DNS names or keeping a separate list is preferred
If you want a clickable entry in C&C, using a free account, you'll need to sign in to your teamviewer account on each machine you want to have access to, add it to your computers, and setup an unattended password.
The default alias in doing this is the computer name, but that can be changed, as shown in previous reply.
The reason why TV is not setup to display IP addresses is that in the majority of environments, they are dynamically assigned. They may not change once they get an address, but the fact is, they can
Previous message is still there. Im not seeing any moderation activity.
Anyway, you'll need to go to each computer you want to control. Open TeamViewer
If you have the full version on each computer, from the main panel, go to Extras > Options > Account Assignment. Sign in with your TeamViewer account
If you have the host module installed on the remote computers, from the main panel, click on the settings icon (gear symbol) and go to Account Assignment, and sign in with your account
In the network settings above account assignment, make sure Incoming LAN Connections are set to accept
Above that you'll see Your display name. Lets say it currently displays MarkPC. You can get the computer's IP address and add it to this field, so that it now reads MarkPC 192.168.1.107
Now go to Security on the left hand side of the options panel
At the top, you'll see the heading Personal Password (for unattended access) Here you'll want to enter a password that you'll use to access the computer
OK the options panel and the computer should now show up in your Computers & Contacts
I greatly appreciate your help MCarter, and thank you for taking the time to try and assist, but that method gives an internet connection, not a Lan one. The ONLY way I can see to initiate a direct Lan connection ( in the free version) is to make the connection by manually entering the actual IP adress (not an alias) at connection time, and those IP addresses, as confirmed by the Team Viewer staff member in the first reply of this thread, cannot be stored in the computers list. If I select an entry from the team viewer My Computers list, no matter how that entry is created, it will never make a direct LAN connection, but will always ,make an internet connction, at least that is how it is working in the free version of team viewer.
If you never want to use internet connection, in the Incoming LAN connections option, set to accept exclusively
This way, no matter what way you try to connect, it will only connect over lan
That can be done, but once "accept lan connections exculsively" is set on then that computer shows as greyed out/offline in the account's team viewer computers list and can only be connected to by entering the ip number at connection time, not by clicking an entry in a list. From what the Team Viewer staffer said, and my experience, there simply seems no way to initiate a lan connection by clicking an entry in the computers list, in the free version. Doing that will only ever intiate an internet connection, never a lan connection.
Cheers, and thanks for your help
My main use for TV is to control a laptop in my living room when I'm recording television programs. I also live very rural and our internet connectivity is not very reliable. That's why I want to connect via my wifi lan. I also imagine it's much faster than when I connect via the Internet since I'm really only about 40 feet away.
Why not have a separate collection of local connections that don't involve TV servers. That bunch of connections would be only for LAN connections. That way we could save them (IP and password)
