TeamViewer and Skype is completely different software and different purpose. But they have some same features, they are share screen and voice over IP (voice call). I love both softwares and i’m using it frequently. But it seems they doesn’t work together. I don’ mean to integrate them, but TeamViewer doesn’t want to connect to other computer while Skype voice call is active.
My case is like this: I’m using voice call with screen sharing on Skype with my friend, to teach her to use TeamViewer. And after installation, she run TeamViewer and tell me the TeamViewer’s ID and password. Then from my end, i tried to connect to her computer a few times but all rejected. This happen only while we are talking on Voice call.
And so i ask her to turn off Skype, and i tried to connect again. TeamViewer works like a charm. I wonder what is blocking between TeamViewer and Skype? I would like to use Skype because it is have clear voice call, and i would like to use TeamViewer for remote desktop to do tutorial. And i know that TeamViewer have voice call function, but it doesn’t clear as Skype voice call.
I’m using Windows Vista SP2, with TeamViewer 6.0 and Skype 4.1. And she use Windows 7 with TeamViewer 6.0 and Skype 4.1 as well. So what’s wrong with both of them? Well right now i couldn’t find any reasons except they use the same port and it block one another. So will TeamViewer or Skype working on this issue? Well i hope so. Let’s see then.
