You can Run two sessions the user will just have to accept the two sessions as normal.

What?

I somehow have to add the computer to the logmein account...normally I would just install logmein and it connects it to the account, doing it on a computer that already has the logmein program will either uninstall or reinstall. Reinstalling removes the first account

Sorry about that,

Start from your Console and create a new session, get the client to go to logmein123.com and input the code from your console and wait until the connection is established. Then from the Second Console create a new session and request the client to go to the Log me in site again. Input the new code from the second Console and connect. The client should see both comments windows on their desktop.

if this doesn't work please let me know how far you have got, Also what you are trying to achieve?

I want to have 2 different logmein accounts be able to connect to the same host computer.

What console are you talking about? I have the free version not pro if that matters...

AAAAHHHH - I have the Rescue version

i know if can be done via the rescue version .let me do some research i am sure it can be done via the free version as well.

have you tried team viewer i know this can have the clients computer connected to by two other machines. It is also free if you use the non commercial product.

You can download it here, it works just like Log Me IN

well I have personally used it and it worked but the main reason I am using it is for commercial use so it won't work.

okay then you are back to your first app Log ME IN and will have to get the Corporate version.

This then also answers your question.

Can more than one account use Logmein for a single computer? Yes

Well can more than 1 logmein account be used on a single computer though? We won't be upgrading to the Pro version because it is not used enough to validate the purchase.

the configuration can work like this.

server1 to client0 & server2 to client0  --- Can work

server1 Session1 to client0 & Server1 Session2 to Client 2  --- Can work

i would assume you are not trying to run two log me in accounts on the same session -- i wouldn't think this would work

I hope this answers your question

All I need to do is somehow add the client0 to another account. I agree that it won't work in 2 simultaneous connections but should work with 2 at separate times. How do I add that computer to another account without installing logmein as usual to add the computer to an account.
