Hamachi - Your Next Best Friend A basic introduction to hamachi
Posted 10 May 2006 - 02:05 AM
What is hamachi? Hamachi is a versitile tool, that "organize two or more computers with an Internet connection into their own virtual network for direct secure communication". What this means is basicly you can set up and LAN connection between you and anybody else in the world as long as you both have hamachi. Have a firewall or modem? No problem, Hamachi compensates!
Quote from the Hamachi website:
"Think - LAN over the Internet.
Think - Zero-configuration VPN.
Think - Secure peer-to-peer.
Access computers remotely. Use Windows File Sharing. Play LAN games. Run private Web or FTP servers. Communicate directly. Stay connected. "
Why use hamachi?
Hamachi is free and safe, it takes no technicle knowledge at all to use and is very versitile. It has a clean interface so even the first time go'ers can easily set up and VPN.
Like i said from getting started: hamachi requires no technicle knowledge of computers, it compensates for firewall and modem so no comfiguration is needed.
Another major advantage about hamachi is that you can connect to multiple "LAN servers" with only one account. Each LAN server can also consist of many people.
What can i use Hamachi for?
When thinking of how to use hamachi, just think what you could do if you had a LAN connection to the other persons computer.
Some uses include:
-Playing LAN games
The possibilities are endless...
Because of Hamachi's clean interface, not much explaining is needed for the button's functions, but here are just a few basics.
The very first time you open Hamachi, there will be a very short, but very in depth tutorial which i highly recommend.

I am having trouble using hamachi, I played 3 months ago perfectly well, empire earth, starcraft, warcraft and now I wanted to play again and I cant see my friend's game.
We have the same warcraft version and abled warcraft and hamachi on the firewall, still I cant see my firend's games. The only difference is that I have a router now and I'm afraid it may be the problem. If you know how to solve the problem

Hamachi - Your Next Best Friend
We recently installed Hamachi at a friends location and have yet to get it to work properly. The newly added client shows an arrow pointing down on my display. It also shows "relayed slow". Other locations seem to work OK but this location is still unusable. I can ping this location but the times are are running in the high 150's. Also I can not connect to his desktop using UltraVNC. I get the feeling this is a router -- port forwarding problem. Any ideas on how we can get this thing to work?

In XP go to control panel, Then Network Connections, Then at the top you should see the menu bar, Click on advanced, Click advanced settings. Then simply move hamachi to the top of that list.
The problem is that ages gives you the IP of the highest priority network device.

PS If this doesn't work use Hamachi 22.214.171.124, and be carefull with Linksys WRT54GS Version 6 routers. This router is the reason I couldn't figure out the problem for 2 years. If anyone has any idea why I'd be happy to know.-reply by SlyNine

When I start up Hamachi, it automatically "Unplugs" my Local Area Connection. Its like 2 computer screen with a cord attached to eachother, and yellow ball moving from one screen to the other. This is what it sais : HamachiSpeed: 100.00 MbpsStatus: Acquiring network adress.And I'm pretty sure it doesnt let me go on because of my IP adress, any help?Thanks,Matt.

hi I was just wondering if this can be used to connect to a lan game between 2 computers without net? using a utp cable directly connecting to each other.. Because there seem to be a problem and we can't see each others created games, its the same version, firewalls are off, and the ip's are set we can share files but we cant see our created games, I was thinking maybe a program like this might be able to help? please email me your answer ^_^ I typed it in the box-reply by hello
