Hamachi is no longer a viable option for any sort of home purpose. It's done. Go use Tunngle.

Further "crippling" of the "free" version....

about LogMeIn Hamachi · · Helpful Not helpful 5 Helpful Report as spam

Please note: From 19th November 2012, they are "crippling" Hamachi further! - Their "free" version of Hamachi will no longer connect in the background as a service if your computer's powered on, but logged off. Meaning their free version is only suitable for remote access to computers that are permanently logged on!

Another very bad move from LogMeIn as they continue to "cripple" what was once a great service!! :(

Me and my buddy hamachi disguised as an Internet source, and without him ones are using when you want to uninstall it after cleaning the cache you have a big Problem- you must uninstall it from the command line .. I do not recommend it

Buggy and not really working anymore.

I used the free gui for this for the longest time, but recently they've decided to phase out this free stuff and make it commercial only. I couldn't use what I had installed anymore as it would only give me an error log and the download for it no longer works either. To top all of that off, the program has always been really really buggy, forcing several of my friends to reinstall this program any time they wanted to use it. They even had to reinstall it every time they restarted their computer. Having just 5 slots per network and yourself taking up one of them was also a horrible limit. I really don't think anyone should get this.

If you really want a good, free, working peer to peer network, get Evolve. It's soooooo much better and basically the same thing.

"Free" version is Crippleware

They have reduced the connection limit more than once, it has been at 5 for awhile now and I'm wondering how long before its 2. They have also deleted members off my network repeatedly because they suspected we were somehow bypassing the limit by connecting more than 1 VPN network.

And crippling the free edition will never drive me to buy the versions with features I don't want or need at pricing for corporate users, it just makes me look for a competing product to replace it.

All could be little easier, e.g. after installation a quick pop up with info about what ports should be opened... but it works. Ping always depends on the networks... for me it's excellent. Between 50ms and 70ms all the time so not much difference to my "real" ping. Tunngle is totally childish compared to Hamachi.

5 connection limit

Please note that LogMeIn have now imposed limits on their "free" edition of Hamachi to restrict the maximum number of connections in your VPN to 5 - if you need to connect more than 5 computers, you have to pay to upgrade
