Support:

We use a branded client edition of Teamviewer 8. This normally uses port 80 or 443, or port 5938 if these are blocked. To initiate the session Teamviewer needs to access teamviewer.com, then connect to the Smartbox network on 82.71.31.100 (this IP address will not respond to HTTP or other requests).

Additional Information

To allow Smartbox staff to fix problems on the computer, we generally require elevated (admin) access when connecting via Teamviewer.
