Create a safe private network

Hamachi is a desktop tool to create and manage a VPN (virtual private network) between multiple remote computers. You can also simulate a fully encrypted and secure local network, which can be very useful for some games.

Developed by LogMeIn Inc., Hamachi provides you with the capability to establish direct links between computers that are behind network address translation (NAT) firewalls without any reconfiguration needed. This software solution is available to be downloaded and used free of charge for up to 5 computers on your Windows system. Alternatively, you can check out other VPN programs like NordVPN or ExpressVPN.

What is Hamachi used for?

With Hamachi you will be able to create your own virtual private network as the program simulates a real local area network between remote computers to share files or play network games. It offers an easy way to access servers, firewalls, and routers to establish connections between several computers. 

What’s most important, is that the connection will be secure. All communications are encrypted, and it only authorizes access to users connected to a Hamachi network. This computer utility uses the server to locate the desktops, but all exchanges are done with a P2P (peer-to-peer) protocol. You can easily print a document stored on your home PC from the office, but also create your own virtual local network to play games with friends. 

Is Hamachi still free?

As stated, the free edition of Hamachi allows you to have only five members in a network. If you wish to add more, you will need to either remove some network members or purchase a subscription service. It serves about three paid licensing plans—Standard, Premium, and Multi-network. 

Standard subscription can cater to about 32 members in a single network while the Premium subscription allows having 256 members. The Multi-network plan, on the other hand, enables you to add 256 members to all of your networks. This particular package plan can be called also a LogMeIn Central subscription.     

Hamachi has plenty of good features. It is also extremely easy to use that even less experienced users will be able to establish and manage networking, as simple as choosing a name for your network and adding your friends’ info. This VPN companion tool is so simple and effective and it will hardly disappoint you. 

An essential VPN software

Hamachi is a valuable VPN utility to have. This will greatly help you in efficiently creating and managing your VPN on multiple remote computers. It's highly secured as all communications are encrypted thus, you don't have to worry much about your safety while using this. The subscription plans that it offers are reasonable although, quite pricey but, if you don't need to have large members in a network then, its free edition will definitely suffice you.
