Stay away. After installing this, I've had enough share of internet lag. Two days have gone by and I was still wondering what's going on. I turned the app off, same results. For a while I thought it...See why people do not like Radmin VPN 😡 Post your review
Encrypted at 256 bit AES level.
Free but that can change in the future. This is proprietary software and normally used as part of Radmin host and client remote control software. You will pay for the remote control software much like Teamviewer should you decide to use it.
Radmin VPN is free to use and is handled by Radmin servers. Radmin is trustworthy. The license is several pages long and you must agree to it before using the VPN. They really should include it with the software so you can review it later. You only see it when you agree to it in the installation. Legally they are complying with the law, but anyone signing a contract should have a copy of it for reference.
Uses include the following.
Virtual network that is encryped in VPN. Each user must have the software installed to connect. They must join the network defined and know the password and network name. You can set up multiple virtual networks. Each network will have its own ID and password. The virtual network(s) are quite secure and relatively fast (100 MB/second). Only the computers using the software can be networked. Other networked computers in a LAN are out of reach.
Gaming is available to the virtually networked computers.
Remote control through Radmin softare.
It is up to the user to determine the use.
The driver used for Radmin can be reset by disabling it, but you can not disable the network driver. It is always on, however you can set your computer to offline which makes it unreachable by any other user. There is a proxy setting, however Radmin does not explain its use in their help. If you want to fully disconnect you must uninstall the Radmin VPN. Just to compare this to TeamViewer, Teamviewer is always connected to their servers although Teamviewer does not make this as transparent as Radmin does.
The Radmin VPN looks very much like the old Hamachi VPN that was discontinued by Logmein. Hopefully the free VPN will be available longer or at least offer a low cost model if it ever goes commercial. Hamachi VPN was great and it was very disappointing to see it disappear. Most free VPNs are too complex for the average user to take advantage of. Radmin is very easy to use just like the Hamachi VPN was. The Radmin VPN help is adequate but they could improve it. It would be nice if the proxy usage was explained.
One last thing to mention this is not a VPN to protect your privacy on a web browser when you surf the net. If you are looking for that use the Tor browser, Betternet or another software package. This VPN allows you to connect to another computer securely or connect using Radmin's remote control software.
This is a great free VPN. Not complex to use and relatively speedy. If you want to connect your computer to another computer over the internet safely you should definitely use this.
By default, Radmin VPN doesn't have a chat feature. You must get Radmin Server and Radmin Viewer (Radmin Viewer will be installed, along with Radmin VPN) to get the chat feature. Radmin Server is a trial software, so you must pay to continuously use it. Since people barely don't own a Google account, a simple and easy workaround is Google Hangouts, for text + voice chat. Discord should fit that role, too.
After installing this, I've had enough share of internet lag. Two days have gone by and I was still wondering what's going on. I turned the app off, same results. For a while I thought it may just be lag on my network. Despite several restarts, the problem persisted.
Websites would work quite fast after they had loaded (given their addresses are cached). But it would take too long for a website to open for the first time. I suspected it was a DNS issue so I looked up any DDoS attacks on DNS but did not find any news. My mobile data plan worked just fine with no issues.
I decided to use Wireshark and check what on earth is happening. And there it was, hundreds of DNS queries spammed out to 220.127.116.11 and 18.104.22.168 for no apparent reason on Radmin's Ethernet. I closed the app, those queries did not stop.
I had to uninstall it (to remove the virtual ethernet adapter it installs) and yeah, as expected, problem solved.
Don't install this if you don't wish for your computer to be part of a DDoS attack.
Great alternative to Hamachi, works flawlessly without any major issues. The downside is the chat function, it requires you to install a TeamViewer-like application.
EDIT: With time, I found out the software is kind of glitchy. Though they claim reliability is one of its strengths, it's a major doubt; some users will experience relayed connection issues (just like Hamachi), even if direct connection can be established between such peers, some will experience login issues (not being able to connect to RVPN's server), some will experience errors joining/creating networks, some won't even be able to install/uninstall the software.
Plus, the support and forum teams are quite inexperienced. Sometimes, they might take a couple days to respond. When they finally respond, they'll most likely give inconvenient or troublesome solutions to users. Also, if you ever tell people to use any other P2P VPN software in their forum, your comment will be removed. They want everyone using their software, even with such issues; they don't care about fixing such issues. If you ever have and report a software-side issue, they'll most likely give excuses, giving such inconvenient and troublesome solutions.
I would keep 4 stars rating, but it's far from being a decent and stable P2P VPN software, is far from being a software I would recommend anybody to use. If you want a decent and stable P2P VPN software, you should look for Wippien. ZeroTier One is another good choice, though Wippien is more friendly.
best vpn for lan tunneling, get lowest ping with lots of gaming networks with ability to create your own without paying or anything no user limit
After i discovered Radmin VPN, and if it's going to stay free, i am never looking at hamachi again.
you can change ur display name by double clicking on ur name
Because it works! It has solved my rdp from a remote site issue.
I have radmin too but vpn is just there in most of my cases :)
I really prefer Radmin VPN over Hamachi, because it's simple to set up, has better, modern GUI, has no limit on amount of gamers connected and it works. On the downside, there isn't an any integrated Lan Text chat or an option to change your display name (so it doesn't look like unrecognizable mess of unknown connected devices).
Nevertheless, i really like it.
Free, simple to use, no need of registration. easy management of networks, great GUI. I would like to have more features, but it's still way better than using Hamachi.
Easy to setup and use, no hassle, no restarts. Works great
a group of us downloaded this we still cant see each others game servers for a multiplayer we've played 2 games with Hamachi then it went kapoot
u didn't have to do any thing special like in firewall settings?
That's because the game is probably not binding Radmin VPN's adapter. Do you still have Hamachi installed? Perhaps the game is not binding Radmin VPN's adapter because Hamachi's adapter is still there.
Likely the best around - it would be nice to be able to sub list VPNs - so you can group these, however i am far from complaining.
Radmin VPN is trash no guaranted protect you from ddos !
