error code:WaitForConnectFailed
« on: July 04, 2013, 06:34:36 AM »
I was at one point able to remotely control a samsung galaxy tab but as of recently I only get the error mentioned in the title when trying to start a session.

I've disabled my firewall (comodo) and tried but the same error occured.

Any ideas on what could've happened?

Hard to tell, the best plcae to start is uninstall Teamviewer on both machines, then reinstall, make sure you enter the teamviewer ID's correctly when trying to connect and report back.

This is usually because the remote computer is not fully set up for unattended remote access.  On the remote computer go to 'Extras' - 'Options' - 'Advanced' - and scroll down to 'advanced settings for connections to this computer'  and set 'Access control' to 'Full Access'.  After all you have given the password to anyone who logs in so why not give them the access.  ??? The cause of the problem is that the remote computer gets a message which asks if it is OK to grant full access.  If no one accepts this question within 20 seconds it declines the connection with the error code 'WaitForConnectFailed'. ::)
