  1. Temporarily disable any features related to Intrusion Detection.
  2. Try connecting again to test whether Intrusion Detection is interfering with the LogMeIn service.
  3. If the problem persists, continue to Solution 3.

Solution 3: Disable peer-to-peer functionality in LogMeIn

On certain systems the issue occurs when LogMeIn is connected via a peer-to-peer connection. To disable this functionality, you must edit a registry key.

Note: Only attempt this if you are comfortable modifying the Windows registry. Changes may cause system instability or even prevent Windows from starting. Contact LogMeIn Support if you need assistance.
  1. Go to Start Menu > Run.
  2. Type regedit and press Enter.
  3. Navigate to the following folder: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\LogMeIn\V5\Net\NATUDP
  4. Change the DisableEx (REG_DWORD) key from 0 to 1.
  5. Close the Registry Editor.
  6. Go to Start Menu > Run.
  7. Type services.msc and press Enter.
  8. Locate the LogMeIn service.
  9. Click Restart.
  10. Reconnect via LogMeIn and check if you still get disconnected.

If the problem still persists, contact LogMeIn support.
