You really cannot call it the best alternative to Teamviewer yet until your program also supports Mac computers.

TeamViewer allows remote connections to both Windows and Apple computers.

So, maybe you should say you are the best alternative to TeamViewer if one only uses and connects to Windows computers.

You are correct that TeamViewer stopped using only the MAC address. They changed it to where it records your Windows-generated Hard Drive ID Number and Windows-generated User Account SID number.

Hi O-Qua Tangin Wann, thank you so much for leaving a comment. You're right, i'm forgot to talk about Macbook, but with me it is the best alternative in Window. Hope UltraViewer will have a version on Mabook soon.

Bogdan Bartos - 1/8/2016 4:02:53 AM

@DucFabulous: I'm not sure about MAC, but having a Linux version as well, would rock. I am not sure as of why you are making this free. Sure we all love the idea, but why free? Also for when will there be a Linux version? .rpm probably would work best.

UltraViewer - 1/14/2017 4:59:25 PM

@Bogdan Bartos: We have some sponsors to give the software free for support startup. We will create a version for Linux too, please wait for it. Thank you very much!

Hot Chilli - 7/20/2018 8:13:14 PM

@UltraViewer: Well, it's more than a year since it came into discussion a Linux version. Sadly, nothing, to date. Such a version would be very interesting (for all the major distributions). Especially if it could work on Raspberry Pi, too. I hope this it will be available soon. Thank you.

Madison Knight - 12/11/2015 4:24:38 AM

I agree with all the sentiments stated here. For my job, I do a lot of remote support. I've looked all over for a good remote support program, and so far every one of them has had their drawbacks. The lack of good options out there is to the point that I've seriously thought about trying to create my own; however, that is a big enough undertaking that I haven't tried to do that yet.

Recently, I've been using Team Viewer, but there commercial use thing always gets me. I would have paid for their professional version a long time ago, except for the ridiculous price tag. I could understand a $100 or $200 price, but $700 is just ridiculous.

I tried the UltraViewer out just now and it seems to work decently well. The color rendering seems off just a bit, and the screen rendering seems a little slower than I'm used to, but otherwise it seems like it could be a promising alternative. The setup was very straightforward and worked without forwarding any ports or anything.

I wish you guys all the best. Good luck.

UltraViewer - 12/11/2015 10:30:17 PM

Thank you so much Madison Knight, your comment will be a best motivation for us to upgrade our product. We will make the color better and speed more faster and more and more soon... Wish you all the best , have a nice weekend!

O-Qua Tangin Wann - 12/17/2015 3:01:13 PM

Madison, I agree with you 100%.

And to make matters even worse concerning TeamViewer's $700 charge: that extremely high fee only covers the one numeric version. In other words, you pay $700 for Version 10, and then they want more money to buy Version 11, etc.

Thank you to DucFabulous. An UltraViewer program that can easily connect to either a Windows or Mac computer would be great.

Good luck...and Happy Holidays!

UltraViewer - 12/25/2015 10:22:16 AM

@O-Qua Tangin Wann: Thank you O-Qua Tangin Wann. We will try our best to upgrade it!

Capotec - 12/11/2015 3:09:43 PM

Agree with Madison as I am in a very similar situation and if this product is developed further and priced correctly - it should do very well.

PS anyone know how to send CTRL+ALT+DEL? - or is it not yet available?

thanks and best of luck

UltraViewer - 12/11/2015 10:26:54 PM

Hi Capotec!
That's a good idea. We will support forward Ctrl + Alt + Del in next version soon.
You can using Ctrl + Shift + Esc now instead if you want to run Task Manager on remote computer.
Please tell me if you need any further assistance!

Keith - 1/19/2016 12:56:30 AM

Great program. Some things you guys can add in would make it a whole lot better

*The ability to copy/paste between remote computer and main computer
*Black out screen, lock screen ect.
*More security

In time I would be willing to pay for this, but please don't overcharge like team-viewer.

UltraViewer - 1/14/2017 5:00:40 PM

Dear Keith, we have noted these proposals and will upgrade it more better soon.

bejo - 1/31/2016 3:46:15 PM

great software for now
but im not able to do copy paste from remote pc to my pc, hope you fix this issue
once more suggestion for me, allow multiple connection by open new tab, not new windows like now

UltraViewer - 1/14/2017 5:02:46 PM

Dear bejo, it's a good idea for allow multiple connection by open new tab, and allow copy& paste . We will try our best to upgrade it.

fire - 5/11/2016 4:28:34 PM

great alternative for teamviewer, which I shy away from purchased it because of the very high cost.

well, I just tried it for a day.
seems like the performance is about 80% of teamviewer.
can copy paste between remote and my computer, can send file too from the chat (while teamviewer can send file from remote).

problem is, if the connection on remote computer is slow, it frequently disconnect, while on the same connection and remote computer, teamviewer can still connect and stabil.

hope u can get the same stabil and speed connection like teamviewer. on that time, I would be willing to pay it, just dont too high like teamviewer.

keep up the good work

UltraViewer - 1/14/2017 5:03:56 PM

Please contact us at and let us know more details like where are you living, so we can increase the network latency problem of our server at that region.

Plasa - 5/25/2016 10:55:10 AM

Thank you for your program.
I tried today and so far is good.
But, can you make target computer wallpaper removed?
So we can gain more speed and acurate mouse control over remote computer.
And file transfer is one of helpful function if can be done.

Sorry for my bad English.

UltraViewer - 1/14/2017 5:07:01 PM

Dear Plasta,
We will add feature to remove wallpapaer soon. Please contact us at and let us know more details like where are you living, so we can increase the network latency problem of our server at that region.
The file transfer feature is already available, please press F1 to show the chat panel and drag the file you want to the chat panel
We're still developing the portable version, please come back later to download it.

Plasa - 5/25/2016 11:06:09 AM

And one more, on download page say PORTABLE (ZIP), but when i download still exe file.

wes - 6/22/2016 8:34:22 PM

This app is not a replacement for teamviewer (YET) and that is key, to make it a replacement we need support for mobile devices, windows, apple, android, need an account based login to add all your remote machines to without having to remember ID's, add options to transfer sound, files, etc, this app is good for instant quick support right now but once you have unattended it will make it a little better and once you add all the other above features than it will be a complete teamviewer replacement

MTG - 9/21/2016 8:54:37 PM

this application is very helpful... Just saying for a few concerns: Can you improve the security? The Pc where you installed this don't have the ability or rights to exit or end task this program without entering the password.. And as Admin set full access to UltraViewer, anytime i can freely connect to that pc, using admin rights, the only message appear on his/her screen is "Admin (bla bla bla) is connected, keyboard and mouse input disabled"... No choice but to watch and wait until admins finish checking up the PC.. something like that? is this possible? Maybe it would be better to have two installer: 1) UltraViewerClient and the other is UltraViewerServer... something like this...

hoping for your favorable action regarding this matter...

Good luck! You have a very light and helpful application BTW... This will rock more if you improve a little bit...

Ipoy - 10/10/2016 9:20:30 AM

Great Software...

Just suggestion for your next upgrade (if any) version :
- Improve the "lack" time between pc's, 'cause responds the client pc had little more times then using t-viewer
- improve connection stabilizer
- file transfer ability

Hopefully Ultraviewer and DucFabulous team making more great success ..
Thank you.

UltraViewer - 1/14/2017 4:57:23 PM

UltraViewer already have file transfer feature, you can press F1 to show the chat panel and drag file to the chat panel.
About the connection stability and speed problem, please contact us at and let us know more details like where are you living, so we can increase the network latency problem of our server at that region.

Goran - 1/5/2017 4:16:48 PM

Could you please do something with the possibilities for a group of PC-'s. I have 3 laptop's at home and couple of friend who regularly needs my help. In this moment, I can not save the ID's that I already connected with.

UltraViewer - 1/14/2017 4:53:42 PM

Dear Goran, this future will be integrate to the software soon!

kamesh - 9/25/2017 1:33:55 PM

regester key number

Dan - 4/1/2018 11:03:56 PM

It's my opinion Teamviewer have priced themselves out of reach of many individuals and small businesses.

This represents a glaring gap in the market and a opportunity that Ultraviewer could fill.
Your product does need to be free, it just needs to work well and be priced correctly and people will buy and use it.

Prasanta Shee - 6/6/2018 6:35:26 PM

In addition to Ultraviewer, you can also have a look at alternatives like on premise R-HUB remote support servers, logmein, gotypmypc etc. They work well.

emerysteele - 6/20/2018 10:20:06 AM

Love the program! But it lacks the ability to view secondary screens.

Apuromafo CLS - 7/24/2018 2:35:19 AM

i suggest there can add more languajes or create a place to do that integration (multilenguaje) add the spanish/Español
i see there are functional, i think there have many things there can do ;)
i think there i can suggest to many friends if add in spanish.

BR, Apuromafo

Avijit Sadhu - 9/2/2018 11:16:20 PM

How can i store and ultraviewer id in a account like Teamviewer?

SAHID - 11/2/2018 5:30:49 PM


Paul - 4/6/2018 3:22:36 AM

I finally got the Commercial use for teamviewer and i am limited to 5 min at a time
I was looking for alternative and I can live with Ultraviewer if i could save the ID and add a name beside it.
Now i have to keep a notepad open with the name of my computers and ID..
I just use that to control other laptop in the house so i dont have to get up and help a friend or two when needed

I really really would like a way to save the ID/Password when i connect
Also an android version would permit me to play with my computers from my tablet when i am on holiday.

Thank you so much


Jeremy Loo - 1/24/2019 2:50:02 PM


Would say that this program has features comparable to Teamviewer.

However, I have problems connecting to servers that is hosted by 3rd party hosting companies as they do not have monitors attached to the servers. And connecting to these servers, it will result in blank screen whereby Teamviewer does not have this issue.

Stella Fan - 5/21/2019 12:14:26 PM

I am using TeamViewer for personal use only.
Most of my documents are on my desktop computer so whenever I use my laptop at the library or remote locations, I need to access files on my desktop computer.
Again, TeamViewer is for my personal use only.

elm - 6/11/2019 3:11:21 PM

Hello. UltraViewer looks like a promising peace of software. But I have found that some things that aren't working as I would expect.

For example the SHIFT key doesn't work in some situations. It is not possible to delete the files permanently without moving them to Recycle Bin with SHIFT+DEL shortcut. Pressing SHIFT+DEL only wants to move the files to Recycle Bin, the same way like pressing only DEL does. Also it is not possible to mark the text with SHIFT+left arrow or SHIFT+right arrow keyboard shortcuts.

Also when I change the software keyboard on the remote computer to my local language, it doesn't accept some characters from my notebook keyboard or USB keyboard attached to my notebook. So on the remote computer it is impossible to write some characters with the diacritics such as Á, É, Ú or Č, Š, Ž, because the diacritic signs ´ or ˇ doesn't work.

I'm connecting from Windows Vista to a remote Windows 7 computer.

But anyways, thanks for your software.

Mike - 7/31/2019 1:44:39 AM

must be installed. Not always an option. Teamviewer lets you run without install. MUCH BETTER option. please update to allow for this

Asad khan - 9/22/2019 1:56:53 PM


tom - 11/14/2019 8:58:10 PM

hey, i like use litemanager for free remote access! what about free version from ultraviewer? tnx

Sugi - 12/9/2019 4:50:29 PM

the one thing we miss from teamviewer is the abi;lity to disable remote input and black screen on the remote while connected. If only this features can be done with ultraviewer, ill say it the best remote ever

Carlos Zinkevich - 2/5/2020 1:35:45 AM

Why are you doing this for free? What is your benefit?

Giannis Pap - 3/26/2020 8:35:51 PM


UltraViewer rocks!
Personally I use it for writing also Greek characters but when I try to enter accented letters, I take the letter alone, the accent itself and also the accented letter, three characters!
Please could you fix it so as to take only the accented letter?


Scott - 7/24/2020 2:17:28 PM

Started using Ultraviewer today as I'm having the usage issue with Teamviewer. I use a Dell laptop with Win 10 Pro to access my Dell desktop with Win 10 Home. They're at opposite ends of the house. Encountered two problems so far. First you can't change the resolution of the screen on the computer you're accessing without an error and secondly it disconnected when I tried to connect Cyberghost on the desktop. Unless there's a setting that needs to be tweaked I didn't encounter these problems with Teamviewer.

laura - 8/12/2020 8:22:29 PM

Had high hopes for this, but it doesn't let you do basic things such as zooming on, copy + paste on remote computer. So frustrating

Jeff Bezos - 9/2/2020 12:58:05 AM

Hope a day you will offer free version in French.

JTS - 9/16/2020 5:26:32 AM

Have used, and technically compared both Teamviewer, and Ultraviewer for a few years. As a free product, Ultraviewer seems to get the job done. However, and as of late, there have been a number of times, where after a successful connection to the remote computer; all you see is a blank/white screen. Have successfully used TV to reboot the remote computer, and still the same issue- Ultraviewer returns a white screen. No response as of yet from Ultraviewer on what could be happening??

Bill from Microsoft - 2/3/2021 12:29:38 AM

We are looking for a cost-effective alternative to teamviewer but this product is not currently available. Manually set port, installation required, still no portable version. Windows quicksupport can do more.

John - 5/15/2021 11:01:47 PM

Not even in May 2021. Looks like the "link" is there only to lure users from search engines. Moreover I searched using historical captures and the link has never pointed to a zip file but is merely a copy of the installer (a.k.a. computer modification included) link. for all those years, no matter what version.

Umesh Bachchani - 8/4/2021 12:27:01 PM

It is showing 'Freeware' on the Home page but still there is a pricing table in the 'Pricing' section. Please let me know whether it is Free or Payable software. And if you are supporting both Free and Payable, please create a column for supporting features of Free (No-Pricing).

UltraViewer - 2/15/2022 7:12:39 PM

Dear Umesh,
We have a free version for everyone and a premium version which have more features.
You can use the free version for many wide normal purposes.
