Hamachi is a tool to create and manage a virtual private network (VPN) between multiple remote computers. You can also simulate a fully encrypted and secure local network, which can be very useful for some games.
The best tool to create a VPN
With Hamachi you will be able to create your own virtual private network: the software simulates a real local area network between remote computers to share files or play network games.
Hamachi 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 the access to users connected to a Hamachi network.
Hamachi uses the server to locate the computers, but all exchanges are done with a P2P (peer-to-peer) protocol. You can easily print a document stored on you home PC from the office, but also create your own virtual local network to play games with friends.
Hamachi, an accessibility model
Hamachi has a few good features. You can use it on a large number of computers, but its also very easy to use. Even less experienced users will be able to establish and manage a network, as simple as choosing a name for your network and adding your friends’ info. Hamachi is so simple and effective, that it will not disappoint you.
An essential tool
Hamachi’s reputation precedes it: not only does it offers all the features you’d expected of a program of its kind, it’s also very easy to use.
