Teamviewer, literals?

Looks like using literals is by design.
This is what I got back from Teamviewer"


Thank you very much for your message.

1. We don't support IPv6 at all yet, for this we will submit a feature request.
2. The TeamViewer-Client will always connect to IP-adresses instead of
Hostnames. That's the current design right now. Is possible this can
change in the future, but we don't know yet.
3. Some smart Proxies do a Reverse-DNS lookup automatically and
because of that it is normally enough to white-list *
Perhaps yours can be configured to do so.
4. If it is possible you may open up Port 5938 outgoing for
TeamViewer. That would be a solution, too.
5. Perhaps some sort of Custom-Router could help solve the problem.

If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact us again.
