This article applies to all TeamViewer IoT users.
TeamViewer IoT enables you to access web applications of your IoT device over the internet. Remote access means that you will have access and control over the remote web applications. The known features within a remote control session like file transfer or others are not available.
Hint: If you have a Premium or Corporate license linked to your TeamViewer account, you are also able to log sessions for reporting via the TeamViewer Management Console.
These requirements must be fulfilled to remotely access the IoT device via TeamViewer:
Set up webserver on remote device for remote access
As an example, you can find a description on how to set up a webserver on an ARM based Raspberry Pi.
To run a web server on a Raspberry Pi, first an operating system must be loaded on the Pi. Installing Operating System from an image is easy, the details can be found on the below link along with the guidelines for installation. It is recommended to use the official Raspbian OS.
Once the Raspbian OS (or any other OS) is up and running, a webserver can be installed and configured on the Pi. Various web servers are available, with different advantages for usage. Below you can find several guides for different web servers installations.
Additional to these examples, other web servers that can listen on port 80 are also supported.
For home automation systems, the webserver openHAB is quite common. It can also be configured to work on port 80 instead of 8080 (default config).
Please find guidance on how to install and configure ports under the following links:
