I try to start Teamviewer on a server without screen:

export DISPLAY=:0<br>

The result is:

Application tried to create a window, but no driver could be loaded.
Make sure that your X server is running and that $DISPLAY is set correctly.
wine: Unhandled page fault on read access to 0x0000008c at address 0x7d8e197a (thread 0009), starting debugger...
err:seh:start_debugger Couldn't start debugger ("winedbg --auto 8 5332") (2)
Read the Wine Developers Guide on how to set up winedbg or another debugger*

I don't get it because on one of my servers without monitor, I could start Teamviewer without a problem. If I type xrandr:

Screen 0: minimum 320 x 200, current 1024 x 768, maximum 4096 x 4096
VGA-1 disconnected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)
DVI-I-1 disconnected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)

And Xvfb isn't even installed!

So how does it work that latter server and not on the one I try to configure ? On the one I try to configure xrandr says:

Can't open display

PS: I know that there are alternatives to Teamviewer but I want to try to make this one working anyway:-)

Thank you for any help!
