Network Console User Guide
1. About the Network Console
If you manage a significant number of RemotelyAnywhere and/or LogMeIn installations, then the Network
Console presents a number of considerable advantages for you.
You probably know that one of the foremost advantages RemotelyAnywhere and LogMeIn offer the user is that
special client software is not required to access a remote machine. Once RemotelyAnywhere or LogMeIn are
installed you can simply open a web browser from anywhere and access your remote machine.
But what if you need access to several machines? What if you want to push installations across your network?
What if you want to copy specific configuration settings to many machines at one time? This is where the Network
Console comes into its own.
This guide takes you through the various features of the Network Console with the detailed information you’ll
need to get the most out of this advanced network management tool.
2. Downloading and Installing the Network Console
You can download the Network Console from the LogMeIn website, here.
To install, download and run the installer.
Please note that the Network Console also works with LogMeIn.
3. Licensing
The Network Console is a licensed product, meaning you have to obtain your own license to use it. You can obtain a
license by either purchasing one or getting a 30-day trial license.
Trial License
Fill out our registration form and install the product. When you run the product for the first time the following will
occur: after the installation it will connect to our server and download a trial license. If your registration is
successful, the Network Console will receive the license and install it as a background service. If you don’t have a
valid license it will prompt you to enter it at startup.
Purchasing a License
You can buy your license from one of our RemotelyAnywhere resellers. You can find contact information for our
resellers in this documentation or on the RemotelyAnywhere website. After you receive your license, copy and paste
it into the license dialog box.
Changing and Entering the License
Network Console will not start until you enter a valid license. If you already have a valid license and you want to
change it (for example, you have a trial version, and you’ve purchased the product), you can copy and paste the
new license by choosing “License” under the “Help” menu.

The Wizard prompts you to select one of the following three options:
1.
Find computers on your network that have
RemotelyAnywhere installed.
2.
Add LogMeIn accounts and all the computers
that belong to that account.
3.
Import a list of your computers into the Network
Console.
To perform any of these functions, simply click to
select the option you want and follow the Wizard
instructions. After you’ve performed one function,
you can return to the beginning of the Wizard to
select another. Please also note that you can
perform any of the functions listed in the Wizard
from within the Network Console user interface
(See sections 7 and 16 below).

Network Console User Guide
6. User Interface
Once you have selected and used an option on the Wizard, the Network Console’s user interface will appear:
The menu items are grouped at the top of the screen, while a
list of machines on your network is displayed under Computer
List on the left side. Please note that the available menu items
correspond to the computers selected on the Computer List (if a
particular menu item cannot be used for the computers
selected, they will appear grayed out). The rest of the screen is
taken up by the main content window, where you can access the
machines listed on the left and perform other Network Console
functions.
Using the options under Window in the menu items
you can modify the display properties of the windows
open in this main content area. Content windows can
be tiled or cascaded, as well as freely resized.
The RemotelyAnywhere machines listed in the Computer List field are labeled as follows:
•
Workstation without RemotelyAnywhere installed
•
Workstation with RemotelyAnywhere installed
•
Workstation on which it cannot be determined whether RemotelyAnywhere is installed
•
Server without RemotelyAnywhere installed
•
Server with RemotelyAnywhere installedï
Quick Launch Toolbar
The quick launch bar allows easy access to the main features of your most recently used functions, and is displayed
at the left of your browser window. The Quick Launch toolbar buttons for RemotelyAnywhere include Remote
Control, File Transfer, Command Prompt, and Open RemotelyAnywhere. For LogMeIn these buttons include
Remote Control, File Transfer, and Open LogMeIn. The buttons are placed right under the main menu. You can
hide the toolbar under the View menu item’s Quick Launch Toolbar option. The toolbar appears as follows:
Computer Name Stores the 10 most recently used computer names. You can select one of them, or type in a new
one (with LogMeIn you can only enter Computer names that already exist on the Computer List). Port Number
Contains the port number of the RemotelyAnywhere server you would like to connect to. If you select a computer
name in the combobox, the port number will be pre-filled automatically with the proper value. Open
RemotelyAnywhere (or Open LogMeIn), Remote Control, Command Prompt, File Transfer Allows you to connect
to the computer name + port number you just selected.

7. Network & Subnet Scans
Network Scan
This option will search your Windows network for domains and computers on which RemotelyAnywhere is already
installed. During the scan your current login credentials are used. It is recommended that you run the scan with an
Administrator account.
You can also choose from the following search options:
•
Search for all kinds of computers
•
Search for computers with RemotelyAnywhere installed
•
Search for computers without RemotelyAnywhere installed
The results of the scan will be displayed in the Computer List field
on the left of the Network Console. The machine status is labeled
according to the icons shown in the above User Interface section of
this document, so you’ll know at a glance whether it’s a server or a
workstation, and whether or not RemotelyAnywhere is already
installed (if this can be determined during the scan.)
The check-box shown within Search Options allows you to choose
whether or not to only search for domains during your scan.
ï
Subnet Scan
With a Subnet Scan you can scan an IP address range for existing RemotelyAnywhere installations.
You are given the choice of scanning all addresses within a given
subnet address, or within a given address range (specified in the
From To and fields). You can further refine your search to resolve
host names, and only show machines on which RemotelyAnywhere
is already installed.
The additional search options are the same as for the Network Scan,
detailed above, with the additional option to resolve host names. This
box is checked by default.
Again, the results of the scan will be displayed in the Computer List
field on the left.

Network Console User Guide
Export Computer List
Here you have the option to export your Computer List section to a “.reg” file. The stored computers and folders will
be written to a file containing all the settings saved into the predefined section including your computer’s
passwords. The format of the file satisfies the Windows “.reg” file requirements.
Import Computer List
Here you have the option to import previously exported hosts to the Computer List section. There are two ways to do
this:
Option 1 Shut down the Network Console and double click on the .reg file in Windows Explorer to import the file
into the registry. Note: In this case all your other saved information will be lost because it will be overwritten by the
imported hosts.
Option 2 Run the Network Console and use the Import Computer List... option under the “File” menu. In
this case the program will ask whether you want to overwrite your existing.
After you’ve made your selections for either a Subnet or Network scan, click Next to choose your authentication
preferences. The Network Console will query each remote host for useful data, including the following:
•
RemotelyAnywhere listening port
•
RemotelyAnywhere version
•
The RemotelyAnywhere installed path
•
Operating system version
•
Computer description
•
The MAC address of the computer’s network adapter
These data are queried by the RPC (Remote Procedure Call), which can only function when the Network Console has
been authenticated on the remote host. You can select your authentication preferences for RPC calls in the dialog box:
ï
•
Use the current logon credentials
o
Select this option and the Network Console will the scan the remote computer with credentials
of the user that is currently logged on. The query will fail if the specified user does not have
logon rights on the remote machine.

•
Use the following username\password for all target computers
o
•
The Network Console will scan the remote computers using the specified username and
password (including the domain) combination.
Save this login information…
o
Check this box and the specified authentication method will be saved for each target computer in
the Computer List section, enabling faster access to the computer for future remote control, file
transfer, etc. sessions.
Note: All passwords are encrypted and stored in the computer’s registry and memory. If you export your predefined
section it will also automatically export all your stored passwords (encrypted, of course). Only the person who exports
the passwords can import them, and only on the specified computer. You have to use the same account to perform
this function, otherwise your passwords again. This only applies to your stored passwords, as the other settings can
be imported again.
8. Quick Connect
To quickly connect to a machine running RemotelyAnywhere, select Quick Connect from the Quick Start dialog
box or from the File menu. The following dialog box will appear (see next page):
To directly connect to a machine, enter the name of the computer to which you wish to connect, select an operation
and click OK. The available operations are:
•
Remote Control
•
Telnet
•
File Transfer
•
Open RemotelyAnywhere
The selected option for session type will determine the contents of the main area..

Open RemotelyAnywhere
Install RemotelyAnywhere
Remote Control
One of the central features of RemotelyAnywhere and LogMeIn IT Reach is its advanced ability to remotely control
the computer on which it is installed, thus enabling you to authentically replicate the experience of sitting in front of
the host computer — regardless of where you actually are in the world. When you select Remote Control, the host
machine’s display is shown and you can then manipulate the keyboard and mouse.
When RemotelyAnywhere or LogMeIn IT Reach is being accessed by a web browser, by default it attempts an
ActiveX-based version of the remote control (for use with Internet Explorer), and, if that fails, a Java-based version.
When RemotelyAnywhere is being accessed by the Network Console, a native remote control interface, based
largely on the ActiveX version, is used.
Please consult the relevant section of the RemotelyAnywhere or LogMeIn IT Reach User Guide for more
information on remote controlling the desktop.
Command Prompt
Using this feature you can open the command prompt on the host computer. In addition to all the Telnet
functionality available when accessing a machine remotely via a web browser, the Network Console offers extra
functionality through the toolbar at the top of the open window. With this toolbar you can, from left to right: mark a
rectangle for selection, copy data, paste data, and view the remote clipboard (as in Remote Control above).
File Transfer
The File Transfer feature allows you to securely transfer files between the local host and the remote computer,
synchronize folders, and delete and rename files. The File Transfer component looks and behaves similarly to the
File Transfer component found in RemotelyAnywhere and LogMeIn IT Reach. Please consult that portion of the
RemotelyAnywhere or LogMeIn IT Reach User’s Guide for further information on its operation.
Remote Install, Enterprise Configuration and Replicate Configuration
These features will be dealt with separately in the next section of this document.
Refresh
If you need to make sure the most up-to-date machine properties are displayed in the Computer List field, click
Refresh.
Remove
With this option you can remove a machine from the list in the Computer List field. It is also possible to
select multiple machines with the Shift or Ctrl keys in order to perform operations such as Remove on
several machines at once.

Network Console User Guide
Ping
With this option you can ping a selected computer. If it can be pinged, then a small green icon will be displayed to
the left of the computer. If it cannot, then a small red icon will be displayed.
Properties
The information under properties for each computer is arranged under four tabs, namely,
Connection, RemotelyAnywhere, Advanced, and Wake On LAN.
Connection
Under the connection tab you can find and modify a computer’s name, port number, any comments, and login
information. Inside login group you can specify whether the Network Console user should use SSL to connect and
whether NTLM is used for authentication. If this default setting is deselected the required password authentication
fields become available for editing.
RemotelyAnywhere
Here you can see its path on the host machine, and which version of RemotelyAnywhere is installed. Saved settings
such as screen resolution and network speed are also displayed on the following page.
Advanced
Under the advanced tab you can find whether it is a workstation or a server. The OS version and a description can
also be found as well as a record of any errors.
Wake On LAN
Here you can specify the MAC address, Network Address, and Subnet Mask of the computer to use at Wake ON
LAN feature. The MAC address of the computer can be automatically detected with the determine button.
Open RemotelyAnywhere
Finally, you can simply open up RemotelyAnywhere’s normal web interface and gain access to all the remote tools
that would normally be available to you when accessing RemotelyAnywhere through a web browser. This is also the
default action if you double click on a machine name in the Computer List field.
You can simultaneously open as many computers’ RemotelyAnywhere interfaces as you like when using the
Network Console, as they will each occupy a window in the main content frame.

Click Next and a dialog box appears, prompting you to enter authentication details for the remote enterprise
configuration:
Click Next, and on the following screen you will be able to configure the various settings according to your needs.
You will notice that some fields have default values already entered. These represent the merged configuration
settings that already existed on the selected machines.
The default values are calculated as follows: When you clicked Next on the previous screen the Network Console
queried the configuration settings from the selected machines. A single value was merged as follows: The
Network Console checked if the setting were the same on all machines. If YES this is the value shown. If NO
then the checkboxes will be grayed out, strings will display empty fields, and combination boxes will be shown in
an undefined state.

Types of Values
Three state checkboxes representing Boolean values: Checked: the values will be written to all computers with the
value TRUE (1). Unchecked: the values will be written to all computers with the value FALSE (2). Grayed: this value
will be skipped, and will remain the same on all computers.
Input fields for representing string values. The values in fields left blank will not be written to the target
machines.
Combo box If you select <diverse> the value will be skipped.
List view Gray items will be skipped and black items will be written to all computers.
Tree view Gray items and all their descendants will be skipped. Black items and all their descendants will be written
to all computers.
Configuration Categories
For a detailed reference of what the various configuration categories mean we advise you to refer to the appropriate
parts of the RemotelyAnywhere User’s Guide (in the chapters on Security and Preferences). They are listed here for
your reference with added notes where there is additional functionality (or different usage) from that detailed in the
RemotelyAnywhere User’s Guide.
Computer list: Here you can see a list of the computers you are currently configuring. It is not possible to add
or remove machines from this list. Doing so would necessitate restarting the Enterprise Configuration process
from the beginning.
Appearance: You can set the custom HTTP directory and the custom HTTP index file here.
Network: (General) and Network advanced (SMTP and Dynamic IP support)
Access Control
Colors
Systray Settings
Log Settings
OBDC Settings License
Remote Control and Remote Control Advanced
Telnet Server and Telnet Server Advanced
SSH Server
IP Address Lockout
IP Address Filter: The IP address filters are displayed in a tree view. There are two types of item. The IP profile item
encapsulates a certain amount of IP filters. You can define several IP profiles, but only one of them can be active.
The active IP profile can be switched on the Network configuration page. A new one can be added by typing its name
into the Profile names field, and clicking on the Add button. An IP filter item can be added by clicking on the Add…
button.
Deploying the configured values: Finally, you can deploy the values you have configured by clicking the
Deploy configuration… >> button in the bottom right corner.
Replicate Configuration
The Replicate Configuration option is a one-to-many configuration distribution tool. It is typically used to
distribute a fine-tuned RemotelyAnywhere configuration to a selected group of computers.
First select the source computer from the Computer List field and select Replicate Configuration, either by right
clicking or from the Command option in the main menu. Having done this, the Replicate Configuration page
will be displayed in the main content window.
Step 1: The source computer’s name will be displayed in the title bar of the main content window. You can add
destination computers for the replicated configuration settings in 3 ways.

You can enter the computer name by clicking on the Add button and enter the name manually into the upcoming
dialog box, you can drag and drop computers from the Computer List field or you can import a list of computers
from a file by clicking on the Import host list button. Again, please note that such a list should be a text file
containing one computer name or IP address per line.
Step 2: Before starting replication, you should select at least one configuration category from the checkbox
menu that appears in the next dialog box. These categories are the same as those detailed above under
Enterprise Configuration.

Network Console User Guide
Step 3: Click Next and a dialog box will appear prompting you to enter authentication details for the remote
replicated configuration:
Finally, by clicking the Next button the status page will be displayed and you will be able to trace the replication
process. ï
12. Certificate Manager
This option allows you to retrieve security certificates from a Certificate Server on your network and copy
them to the certificate store on one or multiple RemotelyAnywhere-installed computers on the same
network.
By using this option, the browser on your client computer will not prompt you about an unknown
Certificate Authority (CA) every time you make a secure connection to RemotelyAnywhere. Your client
browser will instead recognize the CA certificate and automatically identify the computer you are
connecting to. If you install the certificate and establish a secure connection, no warning messages will
mean that the connection is verified and you are in fact entering your login credential into a computer you
have chosen to trust.
Copyright © 2007 LogMeIn, Inc. All rights reserved.
Page 17 of 28
Network Console User Guide
To use this feature, simply do the following:
Step 1: Click Next and a dialog box will appear prompting you to enter authentication details for the remote
replicated configuration:
Step 2: Select the type of authentication you would like to use, then click Next. (Note: the authentication must be
valid for all the computers you select.)
Step 3: The Console will display the Certificate Servers it has detected on the network on a drop-down list. Select the
Certificate Server from which you want to retrieve certificates for copying, then click Next.
The Console will deploy the certificates from the Certificate Server to the certificate stores of the selected computers.
If there are no certificate servers running on the network, you will receive the message: There are no certificate servers
on your network.
Note: the certificate service is included in Windows 2003 Server, and can be added in Windows > Add/ Remove
programs.

13. Wake On LAN
By using the Wake On LAN feature you can send “magic packets” to your computers that are switched off to get
them back online.
To use this feature, first select the computers you would like to wake up:
Add new computers to the list: There are three different ways you can do this. You can 1) press the Add button and
enter the computer name manually; 2) drag and drop computers from the Computer List field; or 3) import a list of
computers from a file by clicking on the Import host list… button. Please note that the list should be a text file
containing one computer name or IP address per line.
You also must determine the MAC address of all the computers in the list. To do this, click the Determine MAC
button. If the MAC address cannot be resolved automatically, highlight the computer, click Edit, and enter the
address manually, or remove the computer from the list before proceeding. The Net Address and Subnet Mask fields
indicate the network the remote computer resides on.
If each computer has its MAC address, NetAddress and Subnet mask triple specified, the Console sends out the
“magic packets” to prompt the computers to come online.
Note: The Wake On LAN functionality only works with computers that have a Network card/mainboard that
supports Wake On LAN. This feature is enabled under the network card settings.
Enabling Wake on LAN in Windows XP
1. Select My Network Places on Windows Start menu and then right-click to select Properties.
2. On the Network Connections page select your network adapter and right-click Properties.
3. Click Configure on the Local Area Connection Properties dialog box.
4. Your network card’s configuration dialog box will appear. Select the Power Management tab and check Allow
this device to bring the computer out of standby.

Network Console User Guide
14. MSI File Configuration
This feature allows you to pre-define RemotelyAnywhere settings in the installation binary itself. When
RemotelyAnywhere is deployed using the modified MSI , it will use the settings specified in the binary file,
saving you from having to re-configure every installation after the fact.
This feature is useful because it allows you to deploy multiple RemotelyAnywhere installations with identical
configurations in accordance with the rules of your network environment.
Note: Changing the MSI file this way will invalidate the LogMeIn digital signature on the installation binary. The
executables contained within will remain individually signed.
To use this feature, simply do the following:
Step 1: Select MSI File Configuration from the Command drop-down menu. Alternatively, you can right-click
on a computer or group of computers in the left-side navigation pane and select MSI File Configuration.
In the main display area, you will be prompted by the Browse button to select the RemotelyAnywhere
installation file (ra* .msi) file to configure. Click Next.
Step 2: You will be prompted to select and configure the .msi’s values in a navigation tree that appears in the main
display area. The listed values include:
•
Appearance: Here you can tailor to your liking the look of RemotelyAnywhere installations that are
deployed from the configured .msi file.
•
Network > Advanced Here you can configure TCP/IP port settings, in addition to settings for IP
filtering, limits for File Transfer downloads, and HTTP Tunneling.
•
Access Control Here you can set user permissions for RemotelyAnywhere on installations that are
deployed from the configured .msi file.
•
Colors Here you set the color scheme for the RemotelyAnywhere interface on installations that are
deployed from the configured .msi file.
•
Log settings > Advanced Log settings
and the Syslog settings.
•
ODBC messages Allows you to configure how messages from RemotelyAnywhere’s System Monitoring
and Scripting features are written to a database. The configurable values include Data Source, User name
& Password for access to the data source, and the Table Name for the table in which the messages are to
be stored.
•
License Here you can view the license on the selected .msi file, or paste an alternative
RemotelyAnywhere license for the eventual installation(s).
•
Remote Control > Advanced Here you can set preferences for how the host computer behaves while it is
being controlled remotely. Options include whether to disable the host keyboard and mouse, blank the
host’s monitor, and automatic clipboard size, among others.
•
Telnet Server > Client Here you can specify which port / address you want RemotelyAnywhere to
listen on for telnet connections. This defaults to the standard telnet port of 23, and all available
interfaces. Changes take effect when the service is restarted.
•
SSH Server > Advanced SSH Settings As with the Preference options for the Telnet Server, this dialog
box allows you to view and modify SSH-related options. The IP and address options are the same as
above, but with the default port of 22, which is standard for SSH connections. Changes will take effect
when the service is restarted.
•
IP Address Lockout Use this setting to detect and temporarily lock out potential intruders on the host
computer(s) on which you eventually install RemotelyAnywhere. This security precaution allows you to

18. Using the Network Console with LogMeIn
The Network Console integrates seamlessly with LogMeIn, LogMeIn’s gateway-based remote access solution for
computers outside the LAN. This integration allows you to quickly access host computers on your network that have
LogMeIn installed, much in the same way that you would access those installed with RemotelyAnywhere.
Individual LogMeIn accounts are listed by their email addresses on the Network Console’s Computer List
navigation bar, where they appear under the LogMeIn Hosts menu tree item. All host computers linked to a
specific LogMeIn account appear as sub-items below the specified account’s e-mail address.
Adding a LogMeIn Account to the Navigation Bar
Step 1: Right-click on LogMeIn Hosts on the navigation bar and select Add LogMeIn Account.
Step 2 : Enter the LogMeIn account login information (the e-mail address and password used to remotely access the
specified hosts). You can also check Save Password to allow quicker remote access to the computer in the future.
Step 3: The Network Console will query the computers added to the specified LogMeIn account. A small status bar
will appear at the bottom of the Computer List navigation bar. To cancel this operation, click Cancel.
Once the operation is completed the added computers will appear as sub-items below the email address of the
specified LogMeIn account:

Removing a LogMeIn Account from the Computer List
Right-click on the email address of the LogMeIn account and select Remove.
Refreshing the Status of a LogMeIn Account
Right-click on the email address and select the Refresh Content option.
The status of the computers added to a specified LogMeIn account is automatically maintained by the Network
Console. The status includes the version of LogMeIn installed on the host computer:
LogMeIn IT
LogMeIn Pro
Unknown LogMeIn version
LogMeIn Free (Note: Host computers that have the free version of LogMeIn installed are not accessible via
the Network Console.)
An “X” superimposed over the host computer’s icon is displayed if the host is not remotely
accessible (for example, because the machine is switched off.)
Note: The Network Console automatically lists all host computers attached to a LogMeIn account once you add that
account to the Computer List. Any changes you make to the list of host computers (as displayed on the specified
account’s My Computers page in LogMeIn) are mirrored automatically on the corresponding list displayed by the
Network Console.
Properties
To view the properties of a host computer installed with LogMeIn, right-click on the computer and select the
Properties option. The following dialog box is displayed:
Step 2: Next, right-click on a computer or group of computers in the Computer List field on the left and select
Install LogMeIn, or use the option in the Command menu.
Step 3: The target computer is shown in the field at the top, with name, installation path and port. You can add, edit
or remove machines with the buttons on the bottom. You can also select to use the LogMeIn settings of the machine
you are sitting at for the remote installation.
Step 4: Enter your LogMeIn credentials in the next window, then click to select which version of LogMeIn you
would like to install: LogMeIn Pro, LogMeIn Pro Trial, LogMeIn IT Reach or LogMeIn IT Reach Trial. Click Next.
Step 5: Select to use the current logon credentials for the remote installation, the Computer List’s login
information for each computer, or enter a username and password for all the target computers.
