With Teamviewer at a VM controlling the host PC

If i try to connect Teamviewer on my virtual machine and my host PC everything is fine. It works and i can controll my VM with my host but my VM isnt able to controll my host, no matter how i set my settings. Why is it not possible or how should it work ?

    Ummm.... I can't think of why you would need to do this, but I just tried it and it worked for me.

    How far are you getting? Are you prompted for a password?

    Are you able to connect using an IP instead of the TeamViewer ID?

    I don't work for TeamViewer. I'm just a user.

    Settings may need to be changed on the remote computer.

    Options > Advanced > Access Control


    Full Access will allow you to control the computer, or you can configure a custom setting.
