    SoftEther VPN vs LogMeIn Hamachi opinions
    This alternative is disputed. SoftEther VPN is still a legitimate alternative to LogMeIn Hamachi, but it might have issues that some users think are important.
     all • positive • negative      relevance • date

    SoftEther is backward compatible with OpenVPN, open source, multiplatform, supports layer 2 bridging (such as for connecting other protocols like IPX), but as a MEDIATED VPN (requiring no special set-up behind most NAT routers which allow outgoing traffic) it is not very widely supported nor convenient to set up by non-techsavvy users.

    Layer 2 network allows multi-cast packets, and client is easy for gamers to setup; server is easy for those who have experience with servers.

    It's set up using tons of commands and IPs and I think it's client-server only instead of peer-to-peer like Hamachi is.

    Softether does not do nat traversal despite claiming it does. Even after setting everything up, my server still can't be reached by anyone outside my lan. Hamachi is made specifically for this and allows you to tunnel through your ISP nat that is blocking incoming connections.
