What is it?

With Hamachi you can organize two or more computers with an Internet connection into their own virtual network for direct secure communication.

Hamachi is fast, secure and simple. It is also free.

Initial Configuration

To run Hamachi you need /dev/net/tun.

mkdir /dev/net
mknod /dev/net/tun c 10 200

Download And Install Hamachi

Head to hamachi.cc and download their linux client (Package coming soon?)

Untar it

tar zxvf hamachi-x.x.x-x.tar.gz

cd hamachi-x.x.x-x
make install

And run tunecfg

cd tuncfg

Run hamachi-init


And thats the installation.

Running Hamachi

Start up the (matt) daemon

hamachi start

Now you have a whole bunch of commands at your disposal. These are in no particular order, and are fairly self explanitory.

hamachi set-nick bob
hamachi login
hamachi create my-net secretpassword
hamachi go-online my-net
hamachi list
hamachi go-offline my-net

To get a list of all the commands just run:
