You can share files, play games, etc. as if they were there! You can also play games with them LAN style instead of over the Internet.
It's pretty cool! Check out the hamachi website at http://www.hamachi.cc
I can't get Hamachi to work with my games. Any help would be appreciated. I've been reading up on it, and some people say that I need to forward my ports. Is there a way to get this working otherwise?

I used to play diablo 2, and Call of Duty 2 with my friends. And it is very simple to use
can some one Please tell me how to play diablo 2 lord of destruction through hamachi???Please help me- The man
Somebody said about port forwardiong here, well it isn't needed to use hamachi and play games over lan, I don't know what was the case (s)he was using on. Even then portforwarding on dynamic IP addresses is pretty easy job depending on the router being used. portforward.com is the one stop resource for everything on portfowarding.
Now who have problem with hamachi i remmomend the following
1ş Please check if the Versions of hamachi are the same as your partners
2ş Open the necessary ports in your router if you have to let hamachi data pass
3şCheck if you and your partner have the same version of the game or some program
I hope i could help someone
But I hear that Vista has a lot of compatibility issues.
Here is some possible solutions...
1) Open the appropriate ports for Hamachi in the router (port forwarding).
2) Completely disable Windows firewall: Enter administrative options for the system and turn off the firewall in three places (domain, private and public networks), aside from disabling it from the security center.
3) Also open ports in Windows firewall (for Hamachi) just in case.
4) Set up a static IP address for your home network and set the Hamachi network to 'private' status and enabled file-sharing for it.
5) In the Hamachi program options, uncheck the box that says 'disable vulnerable Windows services' or whatever.
You could also look through the official user's guide and the unofficial guide for more suggestions:
Hope I could be of some help!
I heard so much about this program...So I finally downloaded it thinking it a easy was of connecting for lan sessions. I'm in the IT field so I'm computer literate...Yet I cant seem to get anything working, so far apart from chat which works I think its main purpose for me, ie games...Seems a waste of time. None of the online help actually gives good advise on how to set up hamachi for games. They only tell you how to get the program up and running in windows. How bout someone that has it working gives a step by step on how to get a certain game working through hamachi...Anyone able to help?-reply by Twister
You have to put hamachi on top of your network list, control panel->networks->manage networks->press alt to get options to show (don't know the word for english)-> choose avdanced options(?) (its second from left)->advanced options (from bottom) -> from the upper window choose hamachi and with the green arrows move it to top of the list. Ok/close
Control panel->networks-> ip adress manually->choose hamachi->options (left mouse)->internet protocol 4->options (?)->use this ip->put manually your hamachi ip and subnet mask is 255.0.0.0 and gateway is 126.96.36.199->advanced (?)->metric value 10->ok/close
Might need to reboot, but I`m not sure about that.
Start hamachi->start cod4, make dedicated lan server, (all players->) start game, console, connect x.X.X.X (hamachi ip of the server)
Same connect thing goes with cod5, in call of juarez 2 players will see the server in lan-lobby, in grid: race driver lobby also works.
But for some games you have to open right ports from your modem, you need to google those, I have 30 ports opened, I don't remember which are for those games I mentioned.
some games require a seperate dedicated shortcut/gamefile (a seperate .Exe file, like a cracked version of a game) set up specifically for it to work over hamachi, CoD4 is one example, and there are various downloadable packs to help you set it up right (usually with a pre-made shortcut/gamefile with it).
My current problem is that hamachi have just upgraded to Hamachi2, and so the previous gamefiles I had setup no longer work!
Best of luck getting it to do all you want ;~)-reply by Arn1e
I can use hamachi for chat and direct play but I can't use it for lan playing when I am connected to my routerbut when I connect to my friends router it works perfectly...So I guess that the problem is in the router and can someone please tell me what is the problem (sorry forbad english)-question by Šoky
