Hamachi Editor's Review
Create ad-hoc VPN's and protect your internet transmissions from prying eyes with this handy cross platform networking tool.
I hate trolls!
You know what I mean...those individuals that skulk around looking for an opportunity to tap into your network or file transmissions with the intent of stealing your sensitive information. Those kinds of people just really bother me. Over and above the fact that mean people stink, what I send to another person or website is no one's business but my own (and the other person designated as the information receiver). That's why I really like applications like Hamachi. It’s a multiplatform secure networking tool.
With Hamachi, you can create virtual private networks on-demand. LogMeIn's Hamachi is a hosted VPN service that lets you securely extend LAN-like networks to distributed teams, mobile workers and your gamer friends alike, in minutes. With it, you can remotely access network printers, cameras, gaming consoles and more, all on demand and all over the web.
When implemented, users are provided access to your network resources, from a centralized gateway, without modifying firewalls or network routers. You can provide user access to specific computers, printers, drives, etc. Hamachi also allows you to connect all of your network clients to each other. You can quickly and easily create a simple, virtual, mesh network that allows remote machines to directly connect to each other, thereby giving users basic network access to all the network resources they need, all while using 256-bit SSL encryption, employing the same level of security as your bank, over both public and private networks.
Pro’s: Easy to use and setup, stable, uses 256bit SSL encryption
Con’s: May create an extra layer of communications complication when troubleshooting internet access related issues
Conclusion: This application is easy to use, uses banking industry strength encryption and gives users access to all available resources on a network regardless of their physical location. The only issue that I can see when trying to troubleshoot communications based issues is that this VPN product adds an additional layer of complication to the equation. Be ready to deal with the extra layer when addressing all network access related issues.
