    Hi @Conquistador 

    Have you set up a permanent password to access your remote connection or unattended access to it?

    It could be many reasons that make a connection unable to be established. Could you or someone else to go there and look in close if the remote machine works as it should be?

    Best regards

    Hi

    Do you have keyboard input working or not? Have you changed anything in your pc hardware or added a new device?

    Because is a macOS, I would be suggesting you at first to validate that the screen sharing settings (Accessibility) are as it must be. You can find more details here about it.

    Also please look to the advanced settings if it is enabled to grant full access to remote computers in the mac's TeamViewer options Preferences.

    no, keyboard input doesn't work.

    no, i haven't changed anything in settings or hardware.

    yes, i tried to access with my ipad pro - exactly the same issue!

    yes, i granted full access & screen sharing in the settings of my remote mac.

    my remote imac is located in spain. now i'm in germany trying to transfer files from there... and, as a reminder, i could access and remote control my mac twice... after that it wouldn't work anymore.

    just can't figure out why it stopped working :-(

    thnx again!
