Commercial use - Connection time out

    That is not allowed for personal/private use. The work network will (apparently) keep triggering the commercial use block. See the blog that has the details in the first post in this thread.

    It sounds like you use a cell/smartphone to connect to computers? Do you have a PDF creater / reader app on your smartphone or device you are using when you try to create the PDF? I also just read yesterday on Teamviewers Support twitter account that electronic signatures are an acceptable way to sign the PDF you are creating. It did not define if the signiture could be printed characters or needs to be an image of your signature. So I assume it will accept typing in your name.

    Said to hear I'm not the only one.

    Seeing as I often login on the website, I haven't been able to find an ID for that computer. I also assumed that my ID would stay the same if I just use the Teamviewer website. Anybody know if that's true? Or do you get a new ID for every other computer you use to login on the Teamviewer website?

    I've been trying to utilize Reset Management page for 8 months now, but clicking the Generate PDF button only adds a carriage return to the Memo field without doing anything else, and additional clicks have no response in Edge (PC), Internet Explorer 11, and Chrome.

    Is there any other mechanism for submitting or emailing a JPEG of PDF capture of the Reset Management page to Technical Support?

    It's unbelievable that this problem has been reported by so many people and page has not worked for so long! Please Help!

    When you fix error "The license limits the maximum session duration for the partner" for free license?

    I haven't been able to connect anywhere for months. It looks like you will have to switch to your competitors ' app((🤨

    It's unbearable. Previously, TeamViewer was more stable.

    I keep getting messages that commercial used discovered, and sessions are stopped, while I am just using personal use.

    What should I do?

    Scroll back up a couple of days and you will find the procedure to get it hopefully corrected (reset).

    No. Support says that does not work. If you read the blog mentioned in the first post of this thread you might find a hint as to what you might be doing to trigger the block.

    I'm using the program to help my mother with the stuff she needs help in her computer. Connection gets disconnected instantly and says me to upgrade. But, I'm trying to use it for personal stuff. I tried to find a way to submit a ticket. But it's impossible. It is so impossible that there's a website inside of this website to show how to submit a ticket. which is outdated. Can someone help me with my problem?

    What's all this about commercial use?

    I've been using Teamviewer for a long time to connect to upstairs, my daughter, and my mother in laws Android tablet in Austria.

    Recently can't do anything as I keep getting time out/ Commercial use message.

    This is impossible.

    **bleep** is going on?

    Why does my non-commercial session timeout in just a few seconds after connecting?

    Dear Teamviewer

    With the updated policy of the frequent disconnect for non commercial users, I thought I would highlight the impact your customer experience/business model. 

    I work for a large commercial company where I am part of the infrastructure project team. We sought a replacement for our current remote desktop management system where currently we have over 140 office location and each office sites at least 6 desktops. We evaluated TeamViewer and found it suited our need but with my experience with the non commercial version and the frequent disconnects finally lack of any useful support I rejected the purchase of the application and recommend we go with Desktop Central.

    You might think this current business model is pushing users onto a paying platform is working but I can assure you it is having the opposite effect.

  • So I have a remote computer that I am trying to connect to (unattended access). It is a brand new computer and brand new TV account. I connect to it for about 15 seconds and it boots me off. TV keeps giving me a message that I have to wait to re-connect (screen shot attached). Anyone have any suggestions?

    I have commercial license. Why do I get timeout all the time?

    Having not needed to use TeamViewer for a good few months I was rather surprised to be flagged as a commercial user when she had a problem and I was connected for all of 2 mins.

    I'll try the 'reactivation' process, but as it does not handle post/zip codes correctly and provides no confirmation that allows me to track the request I do not hold out much hope.

    Anyone trying to find the process can find it here
