Access to SAP ERP via TeamViewer VPN

Accessing a SAP ERP system using TeamViewer VPN, for establishing a virtual private network (VPN) between a local computer and a remote server (partner), is a relatively simple and cheap method. The major prerequisite for the use of TeamViewer VPN is that TeamViewer is installed on both sides with the option “Use TeamViewer VPN“.

Activate &SAP_EDIT in SE16N (SAP ECC 6.0 EHP6)

In SAP ECC 6.0 EHP6, the function code &SAP_EDIT, which enables the change mode of transaction SE16N, is deactivated (SAP Note 1420281) due to security breaches that were detected. In order to activate it (temporarily), follow the steps below:

  3. Press F8 key to enter the data browser for the above table.
  4. While in debugging mode, enter the two variables GD-EDIT and GD-SAPEDIT and press “Enter” key.
  5. For each variable, click on the change button, change the value to an uppercase “X” and press “Enter” key.
  6. Press F8 key to exit debugging and enter the table in change mode.
