LogMeIn Hamachi – Virtual Private Network

Ciaran Moore - July 8, 2008

This is a useful program that lets you make a virtual private network over the internet letting you behave like a network and even play network games across the internet in real time.

Its widely utilized for gaming, so much so that some people have even developed utilities for providing an easy connection for games like Age of Empires 3, making network game connections across the Internet.Several websites exist dedicated to the listing of Hamachi networks for various games which have a multiplayer (networked) option.

Access can be controlled with a password if needed, just to keep it truely private so you’ll be able to password-protect your networks so that only people you permit can join. If you’re concerned with security, they have a page devoted to what they call their “Security Architecture.”

The free version is limited to 64 networks with 16 users in each, doesn’t have user ban or network locking, and only has low bandwidth relays on their server. To connect to a VPN (Virtual Private Network) using Hamachi, both sides must have the Hamachi client installed.

It’s a great idea for making a really uncomplicated and easy to set up network with friends to allow for network gaming across the web.

You can get it, along with further info, from the LogMeIn Hamachi Homepage here
