Alternative to Teamviewer
Posted on 2014-02-13
Does anyone know of a reasonable alternative to Teamviewer?
Teamviewer is a great product until you pay for a license. With the free version upgrades are free and full functionality is available BUT as soon as you buy a version you have to keep paying for upgrades, and they're not cheap. If you want to teamviewer with someone who has a later version they have to exit their version an install your older version before you can collaborate. You can load a later free version to collaborate with non business users but as soon as you upgrade the free version it unistalls your paid version (no choice). When you reinstall your paid version you use up one of the permissions to shift it which means you need to raise a ticket with Teamviewer to get your permission reinstated. If I had known I could have stuck with the free version with my business clients and saved the hassle.
I need my old, licensed, version of Teamviewer to support some of my clients but I am looking for an alternative to use with non-business clients. Can anyone suggest a solution?
