Teamviewer is a remote access and remote control software that allows users to control computers or mobile devices from anywhere in the world. It allows users to work remotely, provide remote IT solutions, deliver cross-platform support and solutions for your clients, and many more. Teamviewer is available for free for your personal use and you can use it on any computer or mobile device.
To fully optimize your usage of Teamviewer, you need the help of a Teamviewer proxy. Basically, a Teamviewer proxy would act as a gateway between your device and the internet. Any website you visit would only be able to see the IP address of the proxy server you’re using. All of the connections that you make will happen via the proxy server.
There are many cases in which a Teamviewer proxy would become useful for you. If you want total anonymity when using Teamviewer, then a Teamviewer proxy will ensure that your online safety and privacy will be fully protected. Speaking of protection, a Teamviewer proxy will also protect your personal data from any kind of data or information leak.
If you want a faster Teamviewer connection when accessing remote and far away locations, a Teamviewer proxy will speed up your connectivity by changing to a proxy server and network that is close to that location. A Teamviewer proxy will also help you bypass geo-restrictions and any kind of information censoring allowing you to get around your network’s firewall.
The best Teamviewer proxies to use would be residential proxies as these types of proxies utilize residential IPs from actual devices making you appear as if you were a real user and not someone who’s using a proxy. Any website will not be able to detect the fact that you’re connecting to a proxy server.
Let’s set up a Teamviewer proxy server.
Note: The Teamviewer desktop application will automatically detect your computer’s proxy settings. So, configuring your operating system’s proxy settings is the same as configuring Teamviewer’s proxy setting.
To set up proxies in Windows, simply search for “Proxy Settings” in your windows search bar and open the search result.
You are then given two options to choose from: Automatic proxy setup or Manual proxy setup. If you want windows to automatically detect your proxy settings, choose the first option. Choose the second option if you want to utilize a specific ip address and port number.
If you chose the first option, then:
- Turn on Automatically detect Settings
- Turn on Use setup script
- Enter the script address
- Click Save
If you chose the second option, then:
- Turn on Use a proxy server
- Input both server address and port number
- If you have any addresses you would like to visit without a proxy, enter them here
- Turn on Don’t use the proxy server for local addresses check box if you want to access a local server without a proxy
- Click Save
To start configuring your proxy settings in MacOS, simply:
Step 1. Click on the Apple Icon.
Step 2. On the drop down menu, click on “System Preferences”.
Step 3. Click on “Network”
Step 4. Click on “Advanced”
Note: Make sure to connect to your wi-fi first.
Step 5. Click on “Proxies”
This should then redirect you to MacOS proxy settings. MacOS is more straightforward compared to windows. You only have one option which is to manually configure your proxy server.
Here are the steps to follow:
- Select which proxy IP protocol you want to configure. This depends on which protocols your proxy service provider offers.
- Turn on Secure Web Proxy
- Input the Proxy Server Address and Port Number
- Click OK to save the configurations
Note: You may be prompted for your Mac user password to save your settings.
To set up a Teamviewer proxy server for your mobile device, simply change your phone’s proxy settings. The Teamviewer app will automatically copy your phone’s proxy settings whenever you use it. Here’s a thorough guide for Android and another one for iPhone.
Congratulations! You have now finished configuring a Teamviewer proxy server. Note that the first time you visit it, there will be a pop up asking for your login credentials.
