Sorry Colin.

I'll try again.

H  - the TeamViewer host (the system I want to control or look at)
T  - the host running the TeamViewer client. Sitting at this host, I can
view/control system H.
A  - my system. I want to be able to log into T from A, and do
everything, while sitting at A, that I could do while sitting directly
in front of T.
B  - another of my systems. Sometimes I sit at this computer instead of
A. While sitting at B, I want to be able to log into T from B, and do
everything, while sitting at B, that I could do while sitting directly
in front of T.
C  - another of my systems. Sometimes I sit at this computer instead of
A or B. While sitting at C, I want to be able to log into T from C, and
do everything, while sitting at C, that I could do while sitting
directly in front of T
[... etc...]

Or, put another way, I want to be able to control H from A, B, C.... not
just from T.

I honestly don't understand why you don't understand why I would want
that :-) 

Regards, K.
