« Go Back

Information

 
Body

An existing Hamachi client running in Client-only mode can be attached to a LogMeIn account at any time.

On Windows

This procedure must be executed on the client.

  1. On the Hamachi client under the System menu, select Attach to LogMeIn account. The Attach to LogMeIn Account dialog box is displayed.
  2. Enter the LogMeIn Account ID (email address) of the LogMeIn account to which you want to attach the client.
  3. Select Attach networks to attach your existing networks to the selected LogMeIn Account.
  4. Click Attach. Your relationship with the selected LogMeIn account shows as Pending.

The Account Holder or administrator will see the attachment request on the Join Requests page for the specified LogMeIn account. The Account Holder or administrator must approve or deny the request.

Once approved, the client can be managed using LogMeIn Central. All networks that were created on the unattached client are also manageable from your LogMeIn account if they are attached to the account.
Tip: Another option is to send an installation link to a user with an unattached client. The user will click the link to reinstall the Hamachi client as an attached member of your account.
Important: You cannot attach a network to a web account that was created on an attached client. You must delete the client from the web account first and then reattach it to add all networks that were created on the client.

On Mac

On a Mac, simply log in to the Hamachi client using the LogMeIn account to which you want to attach the client, as follows:
  1. On the Hamachi client, click the Power icon. You are prompted to sign up or log in to continue using Hamachi.
  2. Click either Log In or Sign Up, as required.

    Be sure to use the LogMeIn account to which you want to attach the client.

    The Login window is displayed.
  3. Enter the information requested.
  4. Select either Login or Create Account, as required. Your relationship with the selected LogMeIn account shows as Pending.

The Account Holder or administrator will see the attachment request on the Join Requests page for the specified LogMeIn account. The Account Holder or administrator must approve or deny the request.

Once approved, the client can be managed using LogMeIn Central. All networks that were created on the unattached client are also manageable from your LogMeIn account if they are attached to the account.

On Linux

Before you can connect to a network, you must attach the client to your LogMeIn account.

  1. Execute sudo hamachi login to log in.
  2. Execute sudo hamachi attach [email@example.com] using your LogMeIn ID (email address) to attach your client.
