Fedora 31 - WaitforConnectFailed

Hi, I'm having a hard time connecting to my Fedora machine. 9 out of 10 TeamViewer output the error "No connection to partner! Partner did not connect to router. Error Code: WaitforConnectFailed". Rarely I can connect to Fedora machine successfully. No problem when connecting to Ubuntu machine (under similar environment, so it could be distro specific).
OS: Fedora 31
TeamViewer: 14.7.1965

Things I had tried, but still couldn't solve the problem:
1. restart TeamViewer
2. stop firewall `sudo systemctl stop firewalld.service`
3. try with another Fedora machine
4. try with another Internet connection

Problem solved by installing the "Other systems (not officially supported)" version. Something is wrong with the package version.
TeamViewer dev, kindly double check the package version.

Re: Fedora 31 - WaitforConnectFailed

Thanks jeffsh

Tested on Fedora 31 this night.

1) sudo dnf -y remove teamviewer    (bye bye the bugged version)

2) if the last command has removed "qt5-qtquickcontrols": sudo dnf -y install qt5-qtquickcontrols

3) tar xvf teamviewer_14.7.1965_amd64.tar.xz  (what is downloaded)

4) cd teamviewer

5) sudo ./tv-setup install force

That's it !!

Regards

If starting from scratch, be sure to first install the rpm, then uninstall it, then install the tar
