Remote access of a windows computer from mac, no admin on mac

Issue with mac users without local admin -> can't remotely control a windows host?

Can run Quick support / meeting app, but no ability to remote control another PC?

Not sure whether this is impossible due to mac security?

    Hi @thisistemporary 

    This is normal way to work during controlling a remote windows pc remotely. Did you set up unattended access to the remote Win pc? If not then please give it a try.

    Best regards

  • Hi there.

    Thanks for your response.

    I agree that requiring admin on mac to install teamviewer is the standard behaviour.

    I also understand that for unattended access on windows, one needs to install teamviewer as admin.

    The issue is if one wants to remotely control a windows computer from a mac. From what I understand, you don't need admin for the remote assistance package ,nor the meeting package. However, if one wants to remotely control another computer from a mac, you don't appear to have an option that doesn't require admin?


    i.e. if I want to remotely control a windows computer, I need admin on the mac to install teamviewer, to then remotely control the windows computer?
