OFF LINE MODE?

Hello Group,

I am a former Logmein users, but now using Teamviewer! Logmein has a manual function to put the program in "Off Line" mode (disconnect from the internet). I cannot seem to find a way to do this with Team Viewer. Is there a way to do this with Team Viewer???

Thank you,

Doug

Re: OFF LINE MODE?

Close Teamviewer using the system tray icon.

If you are worried about security, Be sure to also consider the following and of course consider keeping your teamviewer current.

In Options > Security:

  1. up the password setting, or disable the random password entirely.
  2. Setup a Whitelist either for your organization or for your users individually.

Actually, Its not me who is 'worried' about security, it is a friend of mine who is paranoid about hackers accessing his computer and keeps uninstalling the program everytime we are done working with a remote session.

Thank you for taking the time to reply and provide that information. I have spoken to him and he likes the "white list" feature and feels more comfortable. Hopefully this will put an end to him uninstall and reinstall of the program!

Thank you,

Doug

Re: OFF LINE MODE?

As TeamViewer works without installation, there is no need for an offline mode or constantly un-/installing, simply put the teamviewer_setup_##.exe on the desktop and it will be offline until you start it. If you like to install it - e.g. because of auto-updates - you can turn of the autostart in options, so you have to manually start TeamViewer when you need it, else it will be off(line) :smileywink:
