How do I configure a firewall to work with LogMeIn?

LogMeIn is compatible with all known firewalls and broadband routers.  In most cases, no configuration is needed.

When you install LogMeIn, some personal firewalls will display a message asking permission for LogMeIn to communicate over the Internet.  This is an integral part of LogMeIn and must be allowed in order for the service to function properly.  If you miss this step, you may need to manually configure the firewall installed on the LogMeIn host.

To do so, please find an exception or allowed list in your firewall program and add the following files to the allowed list:

  • LogMeIn.exe
  • LogMeInSystray.exe
  • LogMeInRC.exe
  • LMIGuardian.exe
  • raabout.exe
  • ramaint.exe
These files can normally be found in the LogMeIn installation folder under:
%programfiles%\LogMeIn\x86 (x64 for 64-bit OS).

For hardware firewalls, you must allow TCP port 443 traffic.

For RemotelyAnywhere, our over-the-LAN solution, you will need to open port 2000 on your firewall.

As a courtesy, we have provided support page links to the more popular firewall providers.
