TeamViewer 14 on Pi (Raspbian 9) not connecting following restart.

Hi All, I'm new to the forum, and not an experienced Lunix user, so please bear with me.
I am currently using TeamViewer 14 on Raspberry Pi. The Pi is running Raspbian 9 (Stretch).

I installed TV Linux Host (latest version from TV website) and connected it to my account. Continued with configuring the device, then reboot - no connection. The message displayed is Not ready. Please check your connection.

If I run the command sudo teamviewer daemon restart, then it works fine. But this isn't really helpful as I would have to go to the device every time to get it working.

I have logged a support ticket with TeamViewer, but thought I would post here to see if anyone else has had a similar issue.

If you are replying in a tech manner regarding Linux, please do it in such a way a 5 yr old would undertsand. I am a Windows admin with little / no Linux experience, I have to google everything I do :-)

Re: TeamViewer 14 on Pi (Raspbian 9) not connecting following restart.

I am experiencing the exact same thing on a new raspberry pi install with teamviewer 14.

I noticed in the logs that the server name couldn't be resolved at service startup.  I wonder if teamviewer is trying to start before the network is running.

Re: TeamViewer 14 on Pi (Raspbian 9) not connecting following restart.

This sounds like a plausable theory.

My workaround currently is to use v.13. Luckily I already have some Pi's deployed and the install file was still in the download folder. This I now have nice and safe in my gmail account!

I have also raised a support ticket, so if I get a resolution I can post it up.

TeamViewer 13 and 14 not connecting following restart

This has been a problem since the half baked TeamViewer 13 and it has been passed on in TeamViewer 14. In TeamViewer 12 and all version I have used below we were able to issue a simple reboot. TeamViewer would run on the guest machine at system startup and we would be able to log into the guest machine. Not anymore and what I do not understand is why as this is a key feature of TeamViewer and we need it back. TeamViewer should never have released TeamViewer 13 in the "Preview" nonsense it was and a native linux version should have been built in the background rather than giving us a broken and incomplete product.

I am absolutely dissapointed this has not been fixed in TeamViewer 14 and that means that it looks like for another year I will be forced to use and deploy TeamViewer 12 because the developers are not focused on giving all the features we use to have to the native linux version.

It is reaching the point I might need to look at other Remote Support Providers who care about their clients and develop fully working products.

Re: TeamViewer 13 and 14 not connecting following restart

Login as root, double check your IP settings (for test use static IP and DNS) and run following commands in shell:

sudo teamviewer daemon stop
rm -f /opt/teamviewer/config/global.conf
sudo teamviewer daemon start

Then relaunch and reconfigure TeamViewer. After that, TeamViewer should work properly.

Re: TeamViewer 13 and 14 not connecting following restart

Update: After reverting to TeamViewer 13 and all working well, I have got my test PI, removed TV Host v13, and installed the lates version via the TV website, v14.0.14470 H.

It now works perfectly, which is quite frustrating! I guess my next step would be to reset the Pi, and try again, but as v13 works ok for me, I am happy to stick with that for now.
