Unlike GoToMyPC, Logmein completely hands off the connection after the
initial encrypted handshake. By the time you are at the remote screen
logging in, nothing should be passing through the logmein servers. This
is
what was explained to me before purchase 3 years ago. Regardless, even
if
they used the model of GoToMyPC and routed all traffic through their own
servers, as long as the passthrough traffic were encrypted via AES 256,
such
as Logmein uses, grabbing your password for your server would be
non-trivial. So in this case, yes, you are being paranoid, but that's
not a
bad thing in this business. As long as you know the facts, there's not
much
to worry about. If they weren't actually encrypting traffic - and from
what
I've sniffed, they are - they'd be out of business rather quickly. Your
concern is why Microsoft's RDP handshake is not popular; the initial
handshake is in plaintext. Maybe they've changed it, but I doubt it.

I have about 60 IT Reach licenses and it's an invaluable tool for me. Be
sure to buy the Ignition software if you manage more than a few PC's
from a
central location. Logmein is faster than anything I've tested or used in
the
past, including Famtech's Radmin, TeamViewer, GoToMyPC, and any flavor
of
VNC.

Joel

Hi all, I need to know if anyone knows how this program "LogMeIn." It
safe? It is a Troyan Horse? is part of a group of machines Zombie? The
Url
of this program is: https://secure.logmein.com/loggedout.asp

Thank.



Does my username and password goes thru the logmein service provider and
then to my server? Am I the only paranoid? ;)
