Cannot Connect To Macs From PC

I have three computers. Two home computers, which are Macs (with the latest OS) and one work computer which is Windows 7. I'm having trouble connecting to one of the Macs from the PC. It shows as offline. It is on and TV is running. Sometimes it will connect after a few minutes or sometimes its hours, sometimes never. This seems to have started after I upgraded to macOS Sierra. BTW the second Mac also has Sierra installed and I never have a problem. I am still using TV 10 as it has always worked for me.

Now that I have upgraded all 3 computers to TV 12, I cannot connect from my Windows PC to either of my Macs at all. They both show as offine, but i see the green 'ready to connect (secure connection)'.

Re: Cannot Connect To Macs From PC

I've got one on the Mac's to connect and actually seems to stay connected. My other Mac, of course the one I'd like to connect to, still will not stay connected. Once I sign in from my Windows PC, it may take a few minutes, or a few hours (more likely) to connect. Then it won't stay connected. No one else is having this problem?

Re: Cannot Connect To Macs From PC

Teamviewer doesn't work most of the time.

I had limited success using it between PC's running Windows... between Windows and Mac... 100% failure rate after about five minutes.

Perhaps the Mac is in sleep mode?  I can see the login screen, but cannot input data.

Why would it show the login screen?

100% failure rate.  Current version of TV, paid for.  Not worth a **bleep** dime.
