Haguichi 1.0

Hamachi is a zero-configuration virtual private network (VPN) application capable of establishing direct links between computers that are behind NAT firewalls without requiring reconfiguration (in most cases); in other words, it establishes a connection over the Internet that emulates the connection that would exist if the computers were connected over a local area network. - via Wikipedia.

Haguichi, the best Hamachi GUI for the GNOME Desktop reached version 1.0. The major new feature is that Haguichi supports the new Hamachi² Beta for Linux. The Hamachi² support includes:

  • Managing access to your Hamachi² network (setting password, lock and approval method)
  • Sending join requests to when a network requires manual approval of your membership
  • Support for long nicknames (> 25 characters) of members in your list

A complete changelog for Haguichi 1.0 can be found HERE.

What, you didn't know there is a new LogMeIn Hamachi² for Linux? Well, there is and you can download it from HERE. But as you would expect, it's command line only so use Haguichi for a GUI!

If you want to install the old Hamachi version, there's a script we translated a while back.

Download Haguichi 1.0 (includes Ubuntu .deb, openSUSE and Fedora .rpm)

Many thanks to Stephen Brandt for the tip and great application!
