Goeppingen, Germany, May 17th 2011 – TeamViewer®, one of the world’s most popular providers of remote control and online presentation software, today announced the release of TeamViewer Host for Mac, a solution that provides 24/7 remote access to Mac computers from any Mac, Linux®, Windows®, iPhone®, iPad® or Android® device. TeamViewer Host for Mac is free for private use, without limiting any premium capabilities, and the program is perfect for accessing files or troubleshooting unattended computers or servers.
“With TeamViewer Host for Mac, users have the freedom to control their Mac remotely whether on vacation, at work, or simply on the go,” said Holger Felgner, General Manager of TeamViewer. “Professionals can access their Mac computers to retrieve files while working in a home office or any other remote location.”
Setting up TeamViewer Host for Mac is easy. The software can be downloaded in about a minute, and a fixed ID number and password is defined for each computer. After installation, TeamViewer Host runs in the background and starts automatically with the computer.
With TeamViewer installed, users can establish an immediate connection by entering the ID number and password of the unattended computer. Once connected, the computer or server can be controlled as if the user was seated right in front of it.
TeamViewer Host for Mac offers a variety of key features which makes it an attractive solution for IT administrators. Remote reboot can be used to restart an unattended computer, which is important when installing or updating software. In addition, users can be switched during a session, without interruption, for additional assistance.
