How to Attach an Unattached Client to an Account

    An existing Hamachi client running in Client-only mode can be attached to an 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.

      Result: The Attach to LogMeIn Account dialog box is displayed.

    2. Enter the LogMeIn Account ID (email address) of the account to which you want to attach the client.
    3. Select Attach networks to attach your existing networks to the selected account.
    4. Click Attach.

      Result: Your relationship with the selected account shows as Pending.

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

    Once approved, the client can be managed using the LogMeIn.com website. All networks that were created on the unattached client are also manageable from your 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 account to which you want to attach the client, as follows:
    1. On the Hamachi client, click the Power icon.

      Result: 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 account to which you want to attach the client.

      Result: The Login window is displayed.

    3. Enter the information requested.
    4. Select either Login or Create Account, as required.

      Result: Your relationship with the selected account shows as Pending.

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

    Once approved, the client can be managed using the LogMeIn.com website. All networks that were created on the unattached client are also manageable from your 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 Linux

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

    1. Execute sudo hamachi login to log in.

      The login command establishes a link between your computer and the Hamachi server. After your first login, the Hamachi client running on your computer will remember your details and whenever your restart your computer, it will automatically log you in to the Hamachi server.

    2. Execute sudo hamachi attach [email@example.com] using your LogMeIn ID (email address) to attach the client running on your computer.
      Attaching your Hamachi client to an existing Hamachi account is optional and has the following advantages:
      • You can manage your networks from the LogMeIn.com website.
      • With the attach-net command, you can attach those networks that you have created on your client to a Hamachi account. This way, ownership of those networks will be transferred from the client (that created the networks) to the Hamachi account. This also means that you can manage these networks from the LogMeIn.com website.
