    Thumbs up Teamviewer - A great software for team collaboration

    I came across this free software, Teamviewer, months ago. My friend Sundar (www.sundareswaran.com) introduced it to me.

    Teamviewer lets you control and transfer files to someone else's computer. I find it very useful for team collaboration (It would be like sitting next to your partner at his computer). Plus, it has a chatbox, where you can chat with your partner on Teamviewer.

    For example, Gaya wants to help Farrhad to redesign WMP. So, Farrhad and Gaya goes on Teamviewer. Gaya controls Farrhad's computer and edits the CSS code (But once Farrhad takes control, Gaya can't control his computer anymore).

    But at one point, Farrhad disagrees with Gaya on the color. So, he opens the chatbox and discussed about it with Farrhad. Finally, Gaya agrees with Farrhad's choice. They then continue to redesign WMP together.


    I also find it useful when you don't know something, and need help.

    For example, Nic doesn't know how to change the structure of permalinks in his blog to make it SEO-friendly. So, he asks Simon for help.

    Simon then navigates through the admin area of Nic's blog through Teamviewer and teaches him how to change the permalink structure.


    To get control of your partner's computer, he needs to give you his Teamviewer ID and password (By Instant Messengers or something).

    Teamviewer can be downloaded at www.teamviewer.com for free. If you have used Teamviewer before, please tell about your experience with it on this thread.

    Is the feature in controling computer have limitation? It's because, bad human habits still excist for example, if simon go to the toilet, nic see simon harddisk and delete some file.

    As I already said, once the person whose computer is being controlled takes back control of his computer, the one who is controlling it can't control it anymore.

    If Simon wants to go to the toilet, he should close Teamviewer and open it again when he gets back.

    It's because in teamwork, a "trust" is important. And this thing (trust) become a weakness. If people used to trust their team 100%, usually their will let the team still controlling the computer even if the com owner is go to the toilet.

    And i'm still think, what's system should be added to make teamviewer know if com owner is gone, their com can't be controlled. I mean, how to make it automatically.

    Ah, i just know the solution, gloson
    You just add one button titled "AFK" (away from keyboard), so when the com owner is wanna go to toilet, make coffee, etc which needed to go away from keyboard, their can click it.

    After the button clicked, the control for them computer by other people is stopped. But it's not log-out. After com owner is back, and click AFK again, the control is normal again, and people who do control no need to login again

    I loved the examples

    I have used TeamViewer once in the past for a project, it is quite a good tool. But now somehow I prefer working alone in most of my projects.

    Anyway, just wanna ask. How about if 2 computer specification is different? On computer A the spec is high so it can doing the process (editing, opening program, etc) so fast, but com B have only little spec. How the controlling process will be if a high spec com control low spec com, and the opposite?

    Wow, this software looks great, at least better than the option built-in in Live Messenger. You may thank Sundar on my behalf.
