How do I Authenticate my Session?
Whenever you connect to a host computer running the host software, you must authenticate yourself to the host computer. That means you need to prove that you have the right to use the remote (host) computer by entering a user name and password that the computer recognizes. Do not enter your LogMeIn ID and password. This will result in Error 1326 or Error 5 (incorrect user name and password).
I have a user on my copmuter. So which user name and password do I enter?
Most computers with multiple users or on a corporate network require you to authenticate in this way. For example, on a Windows PC you are typically forced to press Ctrl-Alt-Delete and enter your user name and password. When connecting via Central to such a computer, you will be asked to enter the same user name and password you use when logging in locally.
What if I don't have a user on my computer?
On some computers you may be prompted to enter a Computer Access Code. Usually you are prompted to create a Computer Access Code when you install the host software to a computer that is not configured to require a Windows or Mac user name and password (when you start the computer, it is ready to go without entering a password). The Computer Access Code gives you assurance that only people who know the special code can access your computer.
