I cannot type on the remote computer.

I can use the mouse with no issues. I only have a PC-PC connection and my iPhone, which ironically will type on the remote computer.

 

I am using Wind XP Home 2002 SP3 on the computer I want to log into and Vista 64 on the main through Safari.

 

When I set this up a wile back, it all worked fine untill about 2 months ago when this issue started.

 

I can log in

I can use the mouse

I can get to the blinking curser

I just cant get letters to enter . . .

Unfortunately, we do not support Safari for Windows.  You will need to use Internet Explorer, Firefox, or Google Chrome (Flash and Java support only).

Re: I cannot type on the remote computer.

I would like to point out that I am having trouble as well.  It seems there was a recent update to the firefox plugin, and when I connected to the remote machine (both using Win7 64-bit), I cannot use my keyboard.  The mouse is inside of the remote screen, so it should capture the keyboard useage, but it does not recognize it.

 

I also tried on IE9 (64-bit), and the same issue occured.  Any suggestions would be helpful.


Thanks,

MF

Having same problem

 

fire up logmein

select a computer

log in

click the ctrl_alt_del icon

   no longer get "logmein can log you in" message

click on a user

cannot type passcode using keyboard.

 

clicked on the accessability icon and selected on screen keyboard - was able to type using on screen keyboard clicking keys with my mouse.

 

my computer is running Windows 7

with IE9

 

all was working last night 21-Jan-2013

 

Same problem using free and Pro

 

In a nutshell - keystrokes from my computer do not reach the remote computer.

 

Things tried:

unistalled logmein from my computer and re-installed

rebooted - of course

 

Any additional ideas would be appreciated.

 

 

EDIT:

Thanks Sean - will watch this forum for your reply!

Re: I cannot type on the remote computer.

We took down the latest update, so for now, remove the Plugin, and connect to your computer again to pull down the "current" one (read older)

Re: I cannot type on the remote computer.

Hi Sean,

 

Where should I remove the plugin? in the remote computer or in the current computer where i´m trying to connect to the remote machine?

 

Thanks in advance

On the computer you are using to access your Host.
