TeamViewer Pre-Requisites


Each operating system platform will have its own set of pre-requisites that need to be satisfied before you can use the TeamViewer solution through FileWave.


We'll see conditional options in the FileWave Native and Web Administrator consoles (shown below) for a TeamViewer session whenever pre-requisites are met:


Computer Client Preferences

Computer clients also rely upon the client settings for these options to be available:

  • FileWave Client Preferences > Privacy

There are two options available:

  • Managed remote control
  • Prompt client for remote control access

The first option will allow/deny any connection via TeamViewer.  The second option will be considered when the first option is enabled.

The second option, for prompting, will then either allow only one or both options to be available.  When prompt is disabled, both the options to either prompt or not prompt should be available.  If Prompt is enabled though, the option to action a 'Don't prompt user' will not be available and only prompted connections may be established.

These options may be configured with a Superpref Fileset.

For notifications to be able to be sent to your remote devices, you'll need to make sure to open traffic from your FileWave server to and on port 443.  These are two new services that accept the session creation and push notification requests respectively.
