    Using Teamviewer at work - What will network administrator see?
    Will they be able to see I am actually connected to app "teamviewer" or something like that?
    If so, any way to hide it etc.? Thanks

    Depends how good of a network administrator he / she is, if they can see your screen then yes. Why not just ask and explain why you need it.

    Can you please elaborate this a bit?
    They can see my screen without 'me' knowing?
    Not even an indication of 'remote control' activated on my comp screen etc.?
    (you know how on teamviewer, everytime you log into one's comp, they will have pop up notifying the host and such etc.)

    Yes, they can view your screen without any nifty notifications popping up. The will have a record of everything you do, every keystroke you make, etc. They'll see that you opened the program TeamViewer, and that you remotely connected to a PC. When they see "TeamViewer", that's when they'll peek at your screen and see you on there doing whatever it is you're doing. And you'd better have a good explanation, because sysadmins are known to keep velociraptors as pets.

    I work for a small company - no more than 10 employees together.

    I am not sure how the network is setup. However, on my comp, it shows I am connected to a network BUT i am actually the admin of the computer? So what does that really mean?

    Thanks

    It's no problem. In every company I've ever worked, i used it without any problem.

    Teamviewer is using Port 80. This means that it's using the same Port that HTTP Requests.
    If your Admin complain about it, ask him to search for a girlfriend.

    This may be a little off topic -
    A friend of mine who works as manager in a big company told me that they spy very hard on employees. Like they watch if they are trying any "black hat methods" with their tasks etc.
    I think its def not a good idea to use TV at work.

    This is true, but if they're able to log your processes, they'll still see you running TeamViewer.

    Being the administrator on a computer and the administrator on a network are totally different. The former just describes your rights on the computer as far as what files you can/can't edit, what you can install, etc. The latter is a position given to one by the company, something that basically says you're allowed/supposed to monitor all network activity (including that of staff members) to ensure that everything on the network is running smoothly. Both are to do with privileges, but one is digital while the other is professional. If it's a company that small, then surely you could just ask permission to do whatever it is you need TV to do (or if you're a cocky one, just declare that you're doing it). Seems like unless you're using it to break company rules or watch porn at work, you should be able to talk your way into getting away with it.

    Wow that's crazy. Having a real job must suck. I couldn't imagine having to worry about having some dbag spying on everything I do.

    Yeah, working from your living room is much easier :) I'm guessing OP either doesn't have privately marketable skills, or just hasn't gotten his method train out of the station yet.
