Re: Teamviewer: Commercial use

Hello Andrewt81,

I think that when you are trying to connect to a server it thinks it is gonna be used for business because a 99 of the 100 people do not have server for personal use... 

A teamviewer business account is not all that expensive 32 euro's a month

I hope this helps.

Thank you for using teamviewer!

Re: Teamviewer: Commercial use

Not interested in a commercial License, i'm in 1% who use Server OS for personal use and as stated in License Agreement i want my free account. Nowhere is written that operating system is a requirement from free to commercial.

Who i need to contact to restore my regular free license?

Re: Teamviewer: Commercial use

Hello Andrewt81,

I've fact checked myself, and it is correct that you'll need to buy a licence to get a connection with a server. The only thing that you can do if you want to connect to a server is buy a licence... I am sorry but there is nothing that i can do that helps youy solve this issue! I am sorry.

I hope this helps.

Thank you for using teamviewer.

Hi Andrewt81,

Thanks for your post's!

@iainwels thanks for your help on this one.

@Andrewt81, please have a look at the following article, and notice in the first paragraph it says "Alternatively your machine runs a Windows Server operating system, classifying usage as commercial automatically"

https://community.teamviewer.com/t5/Knowledge-Base/Why-do-I-see-TeamViewer-trial-Your-trial-period-h...

If you are indeed using TeamViewer on a server, this will require a license.

All the best,

Jonathan
