How come I cannot get on the Internet once I use TeamViewer to connect to a remote computer?

by on November 1, 2011

Q: I use TeamViewer to control my Pc remotely, I used it at my job to access my computer (I used the portable version) Computers at my job are restricted. I used the portable version for a while and I was able to access my computer at my house and one day it did not work anymore. Once I open the program is unable to connect to the internet, Im guessing some restriction was put I can I fix this or get around this?

    Yes, your employer likely locked you out of this access. It probably showed up as a massive spike in unusual traffic. Using Team Viewer like that to circumvent network restrictions can get people fired at some businesses.

    Consider yourself lucky and review your workplace’s IT policy so you don’t get the boot!
