TeamViewer is our solution for easy and friendly desktop sharing. You can remote control a partners desktop to give online assistance, or you can show your screen to a customer - all without worrying about firewalls, IP addresses and NAT.

One solution for everything

While most competitors offer different packages for remote support, remote administration, training and sales (and also charge for them...) TeamViewer is the one-stop solution for everything you need: TeamViewer includes all modules in one simple and very affordable package.

Remote administration of unattended servers

TeamViewer can also be used to control unattended computers and servers. Installation as a system service even allows remote reboot and reconnect.

File transfer

TeamViewer comes with integrated file transfer that allows you to copy files and folders from and to a remote partner - which also works behind firewalls

Highest security standard

TeamViewer is a very secure solution. All versions feature completely secure data channels with key exchange and AES (256 Bit) session encoding, the same security standard used by https/SSL.

More information

No installation required

To install TeamViewer no admin rights are required. Just run the software and off you go...

High performance with international router network

Optimized for connections over LANs AND the Internet, TeamViewer features automatic bandwidth-based quality selection for optimized use on any connection.

TeamViewer uses an extended international server network with server locations in many countries all over the world, so no matter where you are located we will make sure that a high-security, high-performance router near your home destination will ensure great performance.

Remote support without installation

With TeamViewer you can remotely control any PC anywhere on the Internet. No installation is required, just run the application on both sides and connect - even through tight firewalls.

Remote presentation of products, solutions and services

The second TeamViewer mode allows you to present your desktop to a partner. Show your demos, products and presentations over the Internet within seconds - live from your screen.

Works behind firewalls

The major difficulties in using remote control software are firewalls and blocked ports, as well as NAT routing for local IP addresses.

If you use TeamViewer you don't have to worry about firewalls: TeamViewer will find a route to your partner.

Flexible use for a variety of applications

TeamViewer lets you connect to your partners in many different ways: You can either view or control your partner's desktop in order to do online-support; You can transmit your screen to your partners for presentation purposes - You may even change directions during a session for high fidelity teamwork!

Security and privacy

Security and privacy have always been our major concerns. Especially while working over the Internet you must ensure that all data runs through secure channels and your privacy is protected to the maximum level.

Features

TeamViewer - Instant Desktop Sharing Quality Seal

TeamViewer has been certified by the German "Bundesverband der IT-Sachverständigen und Gutachter e.V."( BISG e.V. , German Association of IT appraisers and assessors) with the five star quality seal.

The independent BISG testers evaluate products of qualified companies for quality, security and service values.

ISO 9001:2000 Quality Certification

TeamViewer GmbH is one of the very few companies on the remote control market with a certified quality management system according to ISO 9001.

This is an additional verification that our quality system meets internationally accepted standards.

Encryption

TeamViewer includes full encryption, based on RSA private-/public key exchange and AES (256 Bit) session encoding. This technology is based on the same standards as https/SSL and is considered completely safe by today's standards.

The key exchange also guarantees a full client-to-client data protection. This means that even our routing servers will not be able to read the data stream.

Access Protection

In addition to the PartnerID TeamViewer generates a session password that changes with every start of the software to ensure added prevention of unauthorized access to a remote system.

Security relevant functions like file transfer require additional, manual confirmation of the remote partner.

Also it is not possible to control a computer invisibly. For data protection reasons the person sitting on the remote computer has to be able to detect when someone is accessing the machine.

Code Signature

All program files are secured using VeriSign code signing technology. This allows you to verify the origin of the executables you received.

Even the QuickSupport Custom Design tools are dynamically signed during generation!

I've done that with VNC.

you may want to rethink that the free version offers little, http://www.vnc.com/products/download.html

Yeah, but there are many implementations of VNC.

RealVNC, TightVNC, UltraVNC, EchoVNC, Crossloop, Chicken of the VNC, KRDC, etc.

VNC uses the RFB protocol which is open, so there are lots of implementations for lots of platforms. So I can choose whichever I like.

I think it is better to use a software which uses a standard protocol such as RFB (remote framebuffer) or RDP (Remote Desktop Protocol) rather than a custom secret proprietary protocol.

This way you avoid vendor lock-in, support standards, and gives you choice of software to use, and allows easy migration between software, systems, architectures and platforms.
