LogMeIn is a service that enables users to log in and access computers remotely from anywhere on the Internet. On Tuesday the company offered
a free preview
of its Macintosh version.
LogMeIn for Mac lets you remote-control your Mac using another Mac connected on the Internet, or a Windows PC, Linux PC or handheld computer. The software also lets you run applications.
LogMeIn provides a secure connection through its own datacenters using Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology through a Web browser connection. There’s no need for manual configuration of ports on routers or firewalls, according to the developer, and maximum performance is achieved by shifting the connection to a peer-to-peer link as soon as possible.
LogMeIn has introduced this preview of its Macintosh product as a free download; the company hopes to solicit feedback from Mac users to help shape the final release.
The software runs on Intel and PowerPC-based Macs. Mac OS X v10.4.9 is recommended.
