Can two different accounts log in to one common computer?

We have one common computer at work.

 

My co-worker and I want to log in to it at different times

 

We each have our own LogMeIn free accounts.

 

We can't seem to get the common computer we want to log in to to show up on both of the "My Computer" lists...it is either on one or the other.

Re: Can two different accounts log in to one common computer?

One the accounts needs to "own" the common computer, and then invites the other account to have remote access as a "secondary user".

 

Our company has one logmein email account name for all computers with username/password only known by IT admins, with secondary user rights granted to other logmein email accounts as required (and they are easily revokable if users leave the firm or no longer require access to specific workstations).

Thank yo so much!

 

Does this work for the Free version of LMI?

It works perfectly! We've been using the program this way for a long long time (we don't need the added functionality of Pro). Good luck and best regards Smiley Happy

Thanks, Remargable!  Question, though - how do I set that up on the remote computer? I've got a Pro2 subscription, but my Assistant use Free.  (Do I need to do this at the host computer?)

 

Thanks again for helping a "newbie"! Smiley Happy

By what means does the host computer invite other LMI users as secondary user?

 

(I see User Access Control under Options | Preferences | Security but that does not appear to be correct.

Desktop Sharing- isn't that only a temporary measure.)

 

Thanks.

Hello spudly12,

 

In order to add Secondary Users, you will need to have a trial or active subscription to LogMeIn Central. More information about adding Users via Central can be found by following the link below.
