hamachi 2

Hamachi, the easy to use Virtual Private Network application, was updated to version 2 (Hamachi²), bringing a lot of improvements, the most notable being web-based management which can be used to create networks on demand through your LogMeIn account. Another important change is the redesigned GUI.

How Hamachi works:

You'll create a virtual network one time, then join all your devices to that network using a secure key. Hamachi installs a virtual Ethernet adapter on your computer, and uses this to communicate with your virtual network. After signing in, there's really nothing left to do - Hamachi's zero-configuration standard means you shouldn't need to adjust your router or firewall settings at all.

You can download the latest version of Hamachi from HERE.

Please note that Hamachi is only free for non-commercial use.
