I wanted to use teamvewer to support a computer illiterate relative out of state on his android tablet. Previously i had him download the windows version on his old pc. it worked very easily. i connected and saw his screen and moved around. Now i had him go to the google store on his tablet and install the teamviewer host for andriod. he added it to my new account and i saw it on the web console. It would not connect from the web page, it just hung indefinitely. however I copied the id and ran the windows client on my desktop . It immediatly connected and asked for a password. On the other end my relative saw it trying to verify on the tablet. however we never set a password. he said he saw no status box like in the windows version and no temporary password. So is there a place to see the temporary password or set a password on the host? he said he didn't see any. I tried to follow some suggestions here; i moved the device to a different group on the web page; no effect. I tried to set the device password from the webpage; that didn't work either. is there a control on the device he couldn't find? or a temporary pass he didn't see? there is no way to get past this.
