I think they may have changed things so that once they unblock a free account, it stays unblocked.
The reason I say that, is that last year my account got blocked twice in 2 months, but since then it has stayed unblocked, even though my usage pattern hasn't changed.

Well, I spoke too soon, my account was just blocked again (after 14 months).  I guess I will try switching to AnyDesk... of course I have to wait until TeamViewer unblocks my account to switch my remote relatives over  |O

I am sorry, as I said:

... but definitely I don't think they have "whitelisted" a free account.

OK, it seems V14 has a known issue with certain video cards or drivers or something. This could make sense because mi machine and my wife's machine are exactly alike in HW and in SW except that she is using the onboard Intel video and I am using an NVidia Gforce 730 card.

Over in the TV forum someone posted
TV does not work with wayland graphics so if the computer you are trying to call into is using that, you will have to switch it back to "X".

The computer you are trying to call from, can use wayland. However there is an issue in TV and you will have to restart the service then you will be able to connect and see what is online. I use fedora, command is  sudo systemctl restart teamviewerd
Can someone explain "Wayland" and "X" to me?

I tried to use the Intel onboard video in my machine and I messed up so badly that I thought I would probably have to reinstall Linux because I could just not get in. Finally I did manage to boot and get back in and I found a new NVidia control app in the system tray. All this messing might have changed something with the driver.

I am exhausted so I am putting it aside for now but I will be trying to see if the video configuration resolves the problem.

"X" is short for "The X Windows System" and normally referred to as "X11". This provides the GUI for all Unix based Operating Systems. X11 also provides "Remote Windows" over SSH where the remote machine runs the application and only transfers keyboard and video data between Remote and Client.

The X.Org Foundation leads the "X11" project.

I'm not sure what Weyland is, but I know it was proposed for Linux as some kind of "modern" X11 alternative with no "Remote Windows" facility, somewhat like Microsoft Windows which did not have "Remote Windows" capability before Citrix "Winframe" provided it for Windows NT after developing it for OS/2 as "Citrix Multiuser".

Well, I have been using TeamViewer with Linux and it seems to be getting worse. Now it just crashes and closes down and I need to restart it. It does it a lot. What a PITA.
All my posts are made with 100% recycled electrons and bare traces of grey matter.

Don't be offended: this is something common I hear in free users complaints on forums. They are angry because they like the software a lot, want to use it but they don't want to pay for it because they consider their usage as "not really commercial". Furthermore, they consider the software so simple it should cost a lot less.

Windows has free built-in RDP server, and Linux has free built-in X server (or should I say, client).

Apple has an affordable remote management tool and free VNC server.
For remote tech support, it also has screen sharing via iMessage, a little-known but hugely useful tool.
