Teamviewer host on Mac and Chrome OS

Hello, I have been able to deploy teamviewer into windows computers but in our school we count with many Mac and Chrome OS devices. I wanted to know how to install it keeping the settings and assigment that we use for Windows.

Thank you very Much,

Hi @LincolnAEL,

if you want to rollout TeamViewer on macOS, this article will help you: Mass deployment on macOS. Assignment will also work, but importing settings isn't supported on macOS yet.

For Chrome OS, there is currently no mass deployment possibility.

Regards

Sven

Re: Teamviewer host on Mac and Chrome OS

Hi Sven_F, There is no need to deploy it massively. I just want to know how to install it in Mac and Chrome OS, which installer I have to use and if I have to set them all up, by one one.

Thanks,

Hi @LincolnAEL,

you can just download the according packges for each OS:

  1. the installer for macOS can be found here: https://www.teamviewer.com/en/download/mac-os/
  2. the installer for ChromeOS can be found here: https://www.teamviewer.com/en/download/chrome-os/

Afterwards install them on every computer (one by one) by double-clicking on the package and follow the instructions.

Re: Teamviewer host on Mac and Chrome OS

Ok, great, I could try Chrome OS extension, but it seems to be user based, so each user has to install it. Regarding Mac, I could install it and set it up, but it is telling me that the client has a newer version and I have Teamviewer 13 license. Do you know where can I get Teamviewer 13 download for mac?

Thanks,

Highlighted

Re: Teamviewer host on Mac and Chrome OS

I am not sure if I am on the right place or not.  My computer was broken into and I am not trying to make sure that both my and my 96 year old mother's computer are 1.  protected on Teamviewer  and 2. That her computer is set so that I can get into her computer when it is asleep.  Someone at Teamviewer kindly helped with this process but I must have misunderstood something.

1. I now understand that the password changes each time so theoretically no one can get into her computer without knowing the password.  However, I keep getting messages on my computer that say:

"DorothyaltmansiMac.attlocal.net has signed in" when there is definitely no one on the her computer.  I, on the other hand, am no longer able to connect with her computer.

I think that I may have gotten some of the instructions wrong.  My notes say:

1. Change Mom's pw's under security for unattended access on both computers-mine in Boston and hers in FL.

Something about: preferences, security, preferences easy access, preferences-general-but I don't any longer understand what that means and when we tried couldn't find everything.  Would really appreciate help.

Thank you.
