LogMeIn Hamachi Alternatives for Mac

Hamachi is a VPN desktop app that began as freeware and was later picked up and developed further by remote desktop service LogMeIn. Those who miss the older days when all features were free have lots of modern alternative options.

With Hamachi's LAN-like connectivity, the most relevant feature would probably be virtual-lan and importantly, apps that likewise provide a gui for easy configuration.

Some of the closest alternatives are also commercial but great tooling still exists in the free and open-source spaces as well.

    • Works without configuring any port forwarding on routers.Cloud based hosted controller and centralized management. Supports many different clients and is faster then Hamachi from my Android Client. Guest • Oct 2017 • 3 agrees and 6 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Hamachi was a good P2P VPN for its time, but its lack of device and os support is now much more limited. ZeroTier may seem be a little bit more complex than Hamachi, but has WAY MORE Features! I love the true distributed firewall / acl support. Installation was quite easy across devices, Raspberry Pi, BeagleBone, Windows and Android. I am highly recommending this product and service. Did I mention its free too! Guest • Sep 2017 • 6 agrees and 7 disagrees Disagree   Agree

  • SoftEther VPN

    SoftEther VPN ("SoftEther" means "Software Ethernet") is one of the world's most powerful and easy-to-use multi-protocol VPN software. It runs on Windows, Linux, Mac, FreeBSD and Solaris. SoftEther VPN is not only an alternative VPN server to existing VPN products (OpenVPN, IPsec and MS-SSTP). SoftEther VPN has also original strong SSL-VPN protocol to penetrate any kinds of firewalls.

    • Unable to make peer-to-peer connection which is main function of Hamachi. Guest • Aug 2018 • 1 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • 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. Guest • Feb 2018 • 1 agrees and 4 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • It's too complicated to setup, LogMeIn Hamachi is so clean. Guest • Jun 2017 • 10 agrees and 10 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Doesn't seem to be a peer to peer VPN, but requires a server. axuttajaJun 2017 • 6 agrees and 6 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • 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. Guest • Oct 2016 • 5 agrees and 4 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • 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. Guest • Jul 2016 • 3 agrees and 7 disagrees Disagree   Agree
