They did have accounts compromised, I don't have an account as I use it locally only.

There is a setting in there along the lines of "Accept local connections exclusively" which allows login via your local LAN only via the remote machines IP address and a password you set up on the machine in question. You need to register an account if you want to use it over the internet.

I, like Paul, only use the local version.....
I think any current user would be OK - that hack goes back to June 2016.

Yup! I am rapidly becoming one myself...

I am not concerned about the Teamviewer hack (By my understanding it was not a hack of Teamviewer, but a hack of other services which got them user names and passwords) If I don't have an account they can't get my details to get in, someone has to actually hack the Teamviewer software itself to get control of my PC.

I love being able to lie in bed and use my iPhone to view my observatory computer.

Also, Teamviewer now runs on Raspbian Jessie which is excellent, too.

Hi Peter,

The ethernet-over-powerline adapters have to allow data/file transfer, that's what they do, they simply stream the data over the network.

Cable ethernet, wi-fi and the ethernet-over-powerline adapters all do exactly the same thing. Just different methods.

The issue I think, is the operating system and security as to why you can't transfer files.

You need to have the same user accounts on all machines, and that same account also needs the same password on all machines. Once that is done, then setup sharing and all should work fine.

Cheers,

Damien.

OK. Thanks for that. I'll see whether I can use that in the Obs as a way of getting around the bottleneck. I can't use it between Obs and house because they're on different switchboards altogether. Pity.
I'll report back on this. It's interesting as well as a bit challenging for me. I was once very computer literate but systems have overtaken me and now, I'm back among the Luddites.

Peter
