Sound on a Mac to Mac connection

I have been trying with several computers in my home to connect between 2 Macs and to get any sound. But can't get any sound to work. Have tried all options in audio/video etc, any suggestions what to do? I'm on a free version of teamviewer.

    Hi @abk2000 

    It is not possible to transfer sound from a mac computer because Apple has restricted this feature.

    Just for your information, there are some discussions over the web for adding a second virtual sound device, but it could be harmful to your computer since this kind of additions has to do with the inside kernel changing and so is not suggested at all.

    I hope I gave some light to your issue. 

    Best regards

    **Third Party Product** has a built-in feature to accomodate sound on Macs.  This single issue is driving us to leave TeamViewer.

    In this current climate where so many  are working from home, it is absurd that there is no accomodation for this.  At the very minimum, there ought to be controls for a Corporate license to remotely activate a microphone at least.  Apple does allow for this, it just requires one-time privacy authentication from the user.
