Host installation on Linux debian amd64 by ssh

I have only ssh connection to this workstation running a custom debian based distro. This workstation has a desktop that i want to see through teamviewer

i've managed to install the package teamviewer-host_12.1.83885_amd64.deb.

but when I run sudo teamviewer setup, accept the eula, type in email and password of my account it becomes stuck "setting up your device".

Is it because my workstation sits behind a double nat (router + ISP) ?


Need help please! Thanks!

Dear Dark345,

Thank you for your post.

Double NATs should be no problem.

Please do the following command to make sure that TeamViewer is working properly.

teamviewer info
sudo teamviewer passwd [password]

Those commands will provide you the TeamViewer ID and set the password.

Then connect to make sure that TeamViewer is connecting.

Let us know if this solution works for you.

If you have any other questions or have any issue please don’t hesitate to contact us.


Best regards,

I'm having the same issue. I've set the password via command line as you suggested, and the host shows up on my teamviewer account as "online", but the setup process always gets stuck and I cannot connect to the host.
