TeamViewer IoT Documentation

Thanks to the File Transfer feature that TeamViewer IoT offers, users can upload and download files from their PCs to the Edge Device and vice versa.

File Transfer is an extension of the TeamViewer IoT Agent.

What you will need

Make sure that you have prepared the following points:

Enable

  1. Access the edge device remotely (Access the Edge Device via Remote Terminal).
  2. Type in the following command and press enter:
sudo teamviewer-iot-agent configure set EnableFileTransfer 1
When File Transfer is enabled users will have access to the file system of the device with the “root” permission (full access). It is recommended to disable File Transfer when sharing the edge device with other users.

When enabled, you can start to transfer files (see Transfer Files).
