Teamviewer install on AWS RHEL7 and Ubuntu

Tried to install Teamviewer on AWS RHEL 7 and Ubuntu, with the fail result, note down the procedure,

1, download Teamviewer Linux version
You can download the Teamviewer Linux version by this Link.
For RHEL version (teamviewer_11.0.57095.i686.rpm) and Ubuntu version (downloaded both teamviewer_11.0.57095_i386.deb and teamviewer_11.0.57095_amd64.deb).

2, install Teamviewer
Install the teamviewer on AWS RHEL 7 didn’t have any issue.

However install teamviewer_11.0.57095_i386.deb had some problems,

Tried to install teamviewer_11.0.57095_amd64.deb, found still required i386

ubuntu@ip:/home/huilin$ sudo dpkg -i ./teamviewer_11.0.57095_amd64.deb

So I tried to install “teamviewer_11.0.57095_i386.deb” directly,

ubuntu@ip:/home/huilin$ sudo dpkg -i ./teamviewer_11.0.57095_i386.deb

teamviewer depends on libxdamage1.
teamviewer depends on libxext6.
teamviewer depends on libxfixes3.
teamviewer depends on libxinerama1.
teamviewer depends on libxrandr2.
teamviewer depends on libxrender1.
teamviewer depends on libxtst6.
teamviewer depends on zlib1g.

dpkg: error processing package teamviewer (–install):
dependency problems – leaving unconfigured
Errors were encountered while processing:
teamviewer

This require the i386 architecture support to install on 64bit Ubuntu, Okay, I gave up, use this Link to get multiarch support,

dpkg --add-architecture i386
apt-get update

This time “teamviewer_11.0.57095_i386.deb” got installed, but returned “missing dependencies” error, using below command to install the missing dependencies,
sudo apt-get -f install

The installation is done!

3, Test the connection with failed result

Test on AWS RHEL 7, get the teamviewer ID,

[ec2-user@ip ~]$ sudo netstat -ntulp | grep teamviewer
tcp 0 0 127.0.0.1:5940 0.0.0.0:* LISTEN 1067/teamviewerd

[ec2-user@ip ~]$ teamviewer –info

TeamViewer ID: 895336390

The password was set by command,
teamviewer --passwd [PASSWD] set a password

Yes, it is connected to the AWS RHEL 7 desktop successfully, the screen shows,
Teamviewer

However, after I select the user and input the password as below picture shows, the screen will hang and exit the teamviewer automatically after some while.
Teamviewer1

Use below command to stop Teamviewer,
teamviewer --daemon stop

Test on AWS Ubuntu,
ubuntu@ip:~$ sudo netstat -ntulp | grep teamviewer
tcp 0 0 127.0.0.1:5939 0.0.0.0:* LISTEN 1370/teamviewerd

ubuntu@ip:~$ teamviewer --info
TeamViewer 11.0.57095 (DEB)
teamviewerd status teamviewerd start/running, process 1456
TeamViewer ID: 962882708


ubuntu@ip-172-31-23-55:~$ sudo teamviewer --passwd your_password
ok

Connect from the teamviewer from local, the screen hanged at “initializing display parameter”, as below picture shows,
Teamviewer2

ubuntu@ip:~$ ps -aux | grep team
root 3656 0.4 1.0 145652 10932 ? Ssl 05:41 0:01 /opt/teamviewer/tv_bin/teamviewerd -f
ubuntu 4238 0.0 0.0 10464 940 pts/10 S+ 05:46 0:00 grep --color=auto team

From above command, it means no teamviewer connection was established..

Login into the AWS Ubuntu by Remote Desktop Connection, stop the teamviewer and start again,

sudo teamviewer --daemon start
teamviewer

Teamviewer3

It is still cannot be connected, same as above hanged screen “initializing display parameter”.

Use below command to stop Teamviewer,
teamviewer --daemon stop

  1. Hello Xionghui,

    This is Weining Liu. I came cross a very strange problem with teamviewer. When I google the answer, I find your blog.

    The problem is I installed TeamViewer on a workstation (centos 6.5 OS) in my office. I want to get access to this workstation at home, so I installed the TeamViewer on my personal laptop (Windows 7 OS). After I log in my teamviewer account and add both computers, I could not use my laptop to connect to the workstation in my office. However, I could use my workstation to connect my laptop. I was trying to figure out what is wrong but had not got any clues yet.

    Thank you for your attention and I am looking forward to your opinions.

    Regards
    Weining

    • Hi Weining, thanks for the comment, I may suggest you to check if the firewall allows the traffic.. but I am not sure about the detail, if you notice, my test result on Teamviewer has failed, I gave up using Teamviewer to access remote desktop, and tried to look for alternatives.
      I have successfully tested VNC through SSH tunnel (most company will not block SSH connection), I wrote this blog entry, if you are interest to the detail, you can refer to this link: http://xionghuilin.com/?p=578
      I also tested the XRDP on Ubuntu, it’s working fine, I wrote this blog entry, http://xionghuilin.com/?p=562
      As my company network can only use SSH connection (other ports got blocked), so I am using VNC through SSH tunnel now. Since it’s working, I don’t mind and bother which technology it’s been using.
