Host Preference Packages can only be applied to LogMeIn Windows hosts.

Who can use this feature? The Host Preference Packages feature is available to any Account Holder of a LogMeIn Central Premier or Plus subscription and to users in a Premier or Plus account with the Configuration Management permission.

Host Preference Packages allow you to define and deploy preferences and security settings to Windows hosts in your LogMeIn account.
  1. Create a Host Preference Package, as follows:
    1. In LogMeIn Central, go to the Configuration > Host Preferences page.
    2. Click Add Package. The New Host Preference Package page is displayed.
    3. Name your new Host Preference Package.
    4. Click Save.
  2. Under Category, select Remote Control.
  3. Under Remote Printing you have the following options:
    Enable remote printing Allow the client-side user to print from the host to a printer connected to the client.
