I Concur; how can Team Player 4 be compatible with XP as stated, in the above "System Requirements" when Microsoft Net Framework 4.5 which is required to install Team Player 4 is not compatible with XP.

frequently i.e. almost every time it was run the control window would lockup, If I did not start a session it did not lockup, but if I press the start session button the control window would cease responding needing to be forced to close and then it would spend ages collecting data to send a fault report to microsoft.

How does this deal with the industry standard way of connecting PCs to the internet via NAT routers? Do we have to set the necessary port forwarding manually so the LAN private IP servers open port appears open on the public facing IP number or is the program we are being offered here today UPNP aware and will arrange the port forwarding and clear it when the session is closed by itself?

Reply   |   Comment by TK  –  6 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (0)

TK, thanks for your feedback (which goes for all 'commenters' - much appreciated).

To inform you a bit more:
You are correct that one would need to set the correct port forwarding when connecting from remote.
We deliberately did choose not to use uPNP (unsafe and most routers are blocked to have an application set port forwards etc.).
In other products we do, we do have a cloud service infrastructure to indeed enable 'easy connecting' (as we call it); but not in this TeamPlayer version.

PS: when using as remote participant in a local situation, via LAN or Wi-Fi, not port forwarding is needed.
And one can select (change) the used port between a TeamCONNECT client on a personaldevice and a TeamPlayer host session on a PC (default it is port 10244, but can be any; so also port 80 which might work right away)
Hope you can make good use of our software.

Downloaded and installed the program in less than 5 minutes.
Had my little brother download the TeamConnect app to try it out.
It really works very well, and that's only considering I was merely trying it out. With the multiple virtual desktops and dual monitor functions this program really outshines.
You may not be using it now, but I highly recommend installing it and having it ready for when you do. Afterall, who knows when you'll get the chance to install this great program for free again?

PS: twice during my 'trying-it-out' process it gave me corrupt messages and unknown publisher messages. Ignore them and continue their processes (as long as they're from Dicolab, of course). There is really nothing to worry about with these programs (this one and their free TeamConnect app).

here is a good way this software works for me with. 1. I can watch tv on my chromecast with one monitor and with the other one i can do some work. there are other programs out there at are free but not as good as this one. there are a host of things you can do with this program. Also iI can do what i need to do and when other need to print documents or check emails seems to work fine when tried for me.

I'm sure some people will find some bugs no big deal just report them and they will fix them.

I think this company has a great idea and i can only see this program getting better and better.

for those of you who failed to launch it come on turn off your antivirus just make sure your firewall is runing only take a minute to install.

GOTD thank you for your hard work you do everyday for all of us to get these free software.

Dicolab BV the Netherlands thank you for todays software.

Unfortunately, after activating it displays the message "Failed to launch the program" and freezes, in my Win10 64bits computer.
Anyone may help?

Paulo Leme, usually this message has something to do with the gotd wrapper. Cleaning the browser cache sometimes works, but there are multiple causes, see the gotd forums. https://www.giveawayoftheday.com/forums/

The program is really worthless just based on the manual alone. The directions for using this with in the manual are non existent! uninstalled based on their lack of effort to produce a worthy manual.

Teamplayer is a standard in the IT industry for remote control of PCs, like VNC or Remote Desktop. I'm very happy to get a free copy.
I can't install it on my XP box though, when it tries to authenticate with GOTD I get an error message saying "Failed to connect. Please try again later."
Guess I'll try again later...

Ed, XP is still a viable OS and the best OS MS ever developed. Everyone has their opinion.

Trying 2 b Helpful,
You're right! I mistook the name for TeamViewer, which just might have been the purpose of calling it TeamPlayer...
Anyway it won't install and it isn't the application I thought it was so I'm not going to bother with it.

And Ed, XP is fine if you know how to set up a decent antivirus and firewall.

Awesome Program. With dual monitor, I can share my PC now with my son, now we both using it simultaniously. I googled for such kind of program, checked programs like Microsoft Multipoint, Softxpand etc. I came to GOTD page as usual, Surprisingly a kind of program which I looked for! Thanks GOTD.

From the program description;

"Just imagine what can happen when you have six simultaneous users on screen, each using their own local mice and keyboard."

And in the program requirements section;

"Windows XP and up (x32/x64); Additional mice (and optional keyboards) attached to your PC are needed to accommodate multiple users "

So.... one says others can use the mice and keyboards on their own computers and the other says they must all be attached to your computer (the one you intend to use)...

being Dutch, I should support this Dutch company... but I cannot. I'm confused now as to what this actually is... how it works. PLEASE.... tell us which way this works... its misleading for one to say one thing and another to say the total opposite.

Kiwi1960, Their webpage says, and I quote:

Remote connecting users from anywhere using the free TeamCONNECT app

So I'd say without the TeamConnect program being installed it's going to be local mice (attached mice to the same computer) only.

Reply   |   Comment by Trying 2 b Helpful  –  6 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+3)

Trying 2 b Helpful and Kiwi1960 - Any language differences and translation issues aside, one would have to be crazy to think that the publisher expects there to be SIX mice/keyboards attached to any ONE computer! Then, it would not be a "remote" application, now, would it? :)

Besides, the description above clearly says "... six simultaneous users on screen, each using their own local mice and keyboard".

My main concern is with security and how this company secures their platform and the (potentially six!) connections to my computer. Given the recent, perhaps unwarranted, TeamViewer controversy, I am VERY reluctant to use a relatively unknown remote-access software that costs only $49, where, for similar levels of connectivity, the tried-and-tested TeamViewer starts at $750... per year!

For myself, I'll have to look MUCH closer before forming a concrete opinion.

Thanks GOTD and TeamPlayer for making that possible, for free.

Their description is a bit vague. After I installed it, it was actually quite clear: any USB mouse and keyboard connected to the computer becomes a separate cursor and keyboard for the system (yes, really!). In the settings you can see that in addition to this you can use a remote program to connect to teamplayer. Haven't tried this myself, but I can see how this would work. I don't know how this will work with six mice connected, but I had two extra mice lying around and that worked like a charm.

ADDENDUM: After taking a brief look at their website, including their installation and configuration instructions, I am not satisfied that robust security is possible with this app.

Trying 2 b Helpful and Kiwi1960 I was wrong: In addition to remote mouse/keyboard connections, they do give instructions for physically connecting to one computer. However, I still think that is crazy! :)

Since it was first offered at Google's PlayStore on March 20, 2016, there have been only 10 - 50 installs.

I have found no online independent reviews or audits of TeamPlayer's functionality or safety, nor for the separate TeamCONNECT application required for each of the additional connections. That app is free, btw.

TeamPlayer looks interesting and fun but I'll pass until more info is available about security, including, at least, the basics like passwords being required, two-factor authentication; perhaps even restricting access by MAC Address.

jmjsquared, a.o. - thanks for your feedback (which goes for all 'commenters' - much appreciated).

To inform you a bit more:
One can use both locally attached mice (mouses?) from USB connected devices and remote incoming mice/keyboards form personal devices running the (free) TeamCONNECT client.
And yes, we do have users who have 6+ or even 30 mice connected - think of classrooms, large meeting rooms etc. We recommend not to use (in a novice group) over 30 mice - although technically very well possible, you have the risk of too much clutter on screen (think: 30+ cursors on screen). Although there are use cases where it works perfectly.

On security: there is no security issue (with remote connecting users) as the only data transported is mouse x and y data and keyboard data (in a raw, dedicated protocol). No content or meaningful information is send. No platform of ours are in the middle.
Locally attached mice (and keyboards have no security risk at all - it is just the same as a group of people work (or play) together in the non-digital world. We collaborate because it's human to do so. The same applies to the digital world (is our vision).

Still we hope you all can make good use of our application.

This did make me smile.

I can certainly see the benefits that such a product could offer but from a marketing perspective I think that they score own goals.

There are no video demos on their website that I could see, so I hopped over to Youtube where they have a channel, with the last video being from 3 years ago.

So when I read the line "imagine what can happen when you have six simultaneous users on screen", it made me think that they clearly haven't used their own technology or workforce to utilise the software in a marketable way.

Then I read on their website the following line "CASE: Attaching more mouses and keyboards to your PC", which made me chuckle but again, was it not possible for 6 marketing team members to work out the generally defined plural of mouse is mice and not mouses (even though it can be an accepted term from a dictionary perspective).

I also have to say that for me, their website is also lacking in it's design and layout.

All these things just give a general feeling of a company that isn't itself striving, despite trying to push a product that is a great enabler.

Testing it, it does seem to work from the limited testing that I have done so far, so from a perspective of actual substance over style, the product does at least look as though it does what it says on the tin, which is of greatest importance to anybody purchasing the product.

The one big problem for me is getting enough people to want to take a look at the product in the first place.

GOTD will help to some degree but I think that a rethink of marketing is required in order to get it to more users.

PhilS,
After reading your comment I decided to have a look at their website.
Seems to me their little animation explains without any bells and whistles exactly what the program does.
Cannot imagine how they would possibly make a video that was more interesting than watching paint dry. :-)
If you could expand on your ideas it would be great, just to see what you can come up with.
