LogMeIn Hamachi is a VPN service that easily sets up in 10 minutes, and enables secure remote access to your business network, anywhere there's an Internet connection.
It works with your existing firewall, and requires no additional configuration. Hamachi is the first networking application to deliver an unprecedented level of direct peer-to-peer connectivity. It is simple, secure, and cost-effective.
Advantages of LogMeIn Hamachi:
- LAN over the Internet - Arrange multiple computers into their own secure network, just as if they were connected by a physical cable.
- Files and Network Drives - Access critical files and network drives.
- Zero-configuration - Works without having to adjust a firewall or router.
- Security - Industry leading encryption and authentication.
- Cost Effective - Free for non-commercial use.
* Hamachi log file improvement
- The Hamachi crash log file now contains the version information of the Mac client.
* Client improvements
- On the Hamachi client, .local has been added to the ping [client ID] and copy [client ID] context menu options of Hamachi peers. For example, ping 123-456-789 has been changed to ping 123-456-789.local in the context menu. This change has no effect on functionality.
* Hamachi interface on Windows
- In IPv6-only mode, the Network Location Awareness service on Windows clients did not qualify the Hamachi interface as a public interface. As a result, it is now possible to set up Hamachi as a Work or Home network which is less restrictive than public networks. This, in turn, causes less issues with firewall settings.
* Command line clients trim address
- The command line version of the Hamachi client trimmed the IP address of peers. This error effected Mac and Linux clients.
* Notification window on Mac clients
- It was not possible to click links in the notification window on Mac clients.
* Notification window on Windows clients
- It was not possible to move the notification window on Windows clients.
* Menu bar icon missing in offline mode
- The envelope icon on the menu bar was not visible on Mac clients when there was a message for the client but the client was offline.
* Gateway did not check OS type on Windows
- The Hamachi client did not send information about the type of operating system that the client was running. The client only communicated whether it was running a 32 or 64-bit OS. As a result, this information was not displayed on the Networks > My Networks page of the LogMeIn website.
* “Cannot connect to engine” error
- In some cases, due to a communication error between the Hamachi GUI and the Hamachi engine, the client failed to start and displayed a Cannot connect to engine message. This issue effected Windows and Mac clients.
* Masked password field
- When you create a network on the Hamachi client, it was possible to see the entered characters in the password field. As of this release, the content of the password field is masked. This issue effected Windows and Mac clients.
