How to Connect from LogMeIn.com

There are a number of ways to connect to LogMeIn host computers in your LogMeIn account from your PC or Mac.

Connect to any computer that meets these conditions:
  • LogMeIn host software must be installed and running on the host
  • The host must be turned on
  • The host must be connected to the Internet
  • The host must not be in Sleep mode or Hibernation mode
    Tip: If the host computer is on a network with other LogMeIn host computers then you may be able to wake it using Wake On LAN. To review Wake On LAN requirements, see How to Wake a Computer in Sleep Mode or Powered Off Using Wake On LAN.

To connect from your browser:

  1. Go to www.LogMeIn.com.
  2. Log in to your account using your LogMeIn ID (email address) and password. The Home page is displayed.
  3. On the Home page, click the computer you want to access.
    Tip: Control-click or middle-click to open the session in a new browser tab. On a Mac, use Command-click.
    LogMeIn will attempt to make a connection to the host. You will be prompted to authenticate to the host.
  4. Log in to the computer using the appropriate authentication method:
    • If prompted, enter the username and password you would enter if you were sitting in front of the host computer.
    • If prompted, enter the Computer Access Code you created when you installed LogMeIn to the host computer.
    Remember: Do not enter your LogMeIn ID and password. This will result in Error 1326 or Error 5 (incorrect user name and password).
    Your session begins upon successful authentication. The first time you start a remote session you may be asked to install the LogMein Client app or an Internet Explorer browser plug-in to the computer you are using to initiate the remote session.
