The Remote Screen allows you to see what is displayed on the screen of the edge device.

The access and the control depend on the setup of the remote screen feature on the edge device:

X11 (interactive)See what is displayed on the edge device and control it. This is helpful to gain remote control e.g. for maintenance (see Set up the Remote Screen via X11).
Framebuffer (non-interactive)See what is displayed on the edge device. This is helpful to monitor a user while he is working with the edge device (see Set up the Remote Screen via Framebuffer).

  • The edge device is set up with the Remote Screen (via X1 or via Framebuffer).

The user currently working on the edge device gets a notification when you access his device remotely.
  1. On your PC open the TeamViewer Client and log in.
  2. On the left side open the Computers & Contacts tab.
  3. Double-click the device.
