Remote terminal

In some posts I see that it is possible to do remote terminal when the iot-agent is installed in others I see that you can only access webapplications that are installed on the iot device. Is it possible to do remote terminal (i.e. ssh like) when iot-agent is installed or is the full teamviewer needed for this? 

Note: I tried to do this on a RPi but I couldn't accomplish a remote terminal connection when iot-agent was installed. While the data was showing in the dashboard perfectly.

Re: Remote terminal

Hello @jspek 

Thank you for your post.

Right, if you have the the latest version of the TeamViewer IoT agent installed, you are able to use a Remote Terminal within the TeamViewe connection (like SSH) without having to set any exceptions on your Firewall. 

Please make sure to update the IoT agent in order to use the Remote Terminal. You can check your current version with the following command:

sudo teamviewer-iot-agent info

Current version as of Feb 6, 2019 is 2.0.107

If this version still does not show the Remote Terminal on your Raspberry Pi, please contact us at https://www.teamviewer.com/de/support/contact/ and submit us your log files under /var/logs/

Best regards,

Patrick

Re: Remote terminal

Hi @jspek 

At the moment, you can only connect FROM a Windows TeamViewer client, that is correct, yes. We are working on deploying the IoT technology on other TeamViewer clients as well but at the moment, IoT devices can only be reached from a Windows PC. 

Hope, that helps. Let us know if you ahve any other questions.

Best regards,
Patrick
