Add LAN IP Address to Contacts

SteveAW Posts: 1
edited March 30 in Ideas Hub

We have a firewall that restricts internet access to several computers, so we connect to them with TeamViewer through the LAN with the IP address instead of the Partner ID.  Is there a way to store remote computer IP addresses in the Contacts list?

    Same for me i have the coporate license, so i have asked at my friend to develop me a small program:

    only on windows (& work with shared folder)

    We can do the same by scanning range IP by simple program like Advanced ip scanner and see host names and IP adresses, but this not a solution, we pay teamviewer for coporate license to comfortable connect to devices

    this would be a great feature, with the ability to save the password as a contact with a partner ID
  • The same problem! Please add the feature to save LAN computers (IP-address) in Contacts!

    Hi All,

    I would like to request a new function where we have the option to save both local IP Address & TeamViewer ID into the C&C. And an option to connect to any devices via LAN or TeamViewer with a simple clicks.

    As most of the time we are in the office building & we just needs remote control via LAN instead of going through TeamViewer, which is much more faster in initiating the connection.

    Thanks all.

    This is a long requested item that I have pressed for at every renewal of our corporate licence for the last 5 years.  When will Team Viewer be looking at implementing this?

    Got an update with some more added "features" which are worthless to most people, but no LAN IP address support!
    Will this be added, has this been considered - any answer would be nice!

    I'm often using team viewer locally just to share the screen of my laptop with my home computer.

    Being able to share this laptop ip through lan instead of internet using contact list would make my work on the laptop way more fluent.

    Please, add the feature!

    I CAN'T BELIEVE it's January 2021 and we still continue without this INCREDIBLE SIMPLE AND BASIC feature.

    TeamViewer please pay attention to this.

    It's an incredibly simple and tremendously useful feature.

    All we want is to be able to add local (LAN) computers into contacts.

    Please add this feature, in our case we have the same problem...some of our computers are on a private vpn point to point connected to our work office and the only way that we have to connect to them is through entering manually the IP lan and the password.
