New Enhancements to LogMeIn Central Alerts Available

We have released new enhancements in LogMeIn Central Alerts to help you easily manage and monitor remote computers running LogMeIn Pro.  Now you can do more with Central Alerts to proactively maintain systems.

Updates include a new Event alert to monitor event code activity on a computer or group.

You can now use the improved Event alert rule to monitor event code activity on a computer or across a group of computers. You can define multiple event sources, event categories or event identifiers, and you can also define exceptions. The rule will alert when an event log entry that matches the specified criteria is written to one of the standard Windows event logs.

In addition to the new Event alert rule, we have also added many new usability enhancements to make it easier than ever to create and set up alerts as well as the ability to set alert rules as Active or Disabled within an alert package.

Step-by-step: Create an Alert Package with the new Event alert rule

  1. In LogMeIn Central, click the Alerts tab.
  2. Click Manage Alert Packages.
  3. Click Add Alert Package. The Add Alert Package page is displayed.
  4. Give your Alert Package a Name.
  5. Add rules to the package. (Note: You can define multiple event source, event category or event identifiers to look for, and you can also define exceptions.)
  6. Continue to add rules as required.
  7. Click Save Alert Package. The package is saved and ready to be assigned to computers or groups of computers.

Paired with LogMeIn Pro, the all-new Central Alerts improves insight into system health and status so you can keep machines up and running. Log in to try the new Alerts today.

LogMeIn Launches vpn.net and Releases New Hamachi Update with Support for IPv6 on Windows, Macs and Linux (Beta)

We are excited to introduce a new home for LogMeIn Hamachi users at vpn.net. LogMeIn Hamachi still offers the same great service to download, setup and manage your VPNs over the Internet.  At vpn.net both new and existing users can log in to Hamachi's secure VPN service quickly and easily.  LogMeIn Hamachi can network Windows and Mac OS computers in any configuration.  A client for Linux-based systems is now in beta.

We've also added support for IPv6 within Hamachi. This is part of our commitment to lead IPv6 adoption as well as ensure our users continue to get the highest quality of service.  Enabling Hamachi to use the IPv6 protocol means that there are now a virtually limitless number of IP addresses which can be used with Hamachi VPNs.  Existing and new Hamachi VPNs will continue to leverage IPv4 addresses in addition to full support for IPv6.  From an end-user perspective, the IPv6  transition will be seamless for existing Hamachi users.  Hamachi hosts will be updated automatically, but you can also update Windows and Mac hosts manually by clicking "check for updates" under the help menu.

To create a new VPN, you can simply go to vpn.net, download Hamachi, create a new network, and set a password.  Adding other computers to the network is quick and easy.  Just point colleagues, clients and other users to vpn.net, and provide them with the network name and password.

Check it out and let us know how it goes...
