Hamachi is a life-saving solution for all those who struggle to deal with network restrictions, allowing the creation of secure networks over the Internet.
It takes a few seconds to launch for the first time, but only because Hamachi needs to load all the necessary files that are required later to allow you to either connect to an existing network or to create your very own.
The interface is minimal and user-friendly. To start enjoying its features you just have to press the Power button at the top of the screen, with Hamachi taking care of the whole network registering process. In other words, it assigns you an IP address which allows you to do the aforementioned two things, join or create a network.
Administer a network or connect to one
The two main functions are displayed in the main window, while the settings menu can be accessed via the options button at the top of the screen. Once you are part of a network, either as a server or as a client, you can chat with the other members and administer the network by banning clients or create new admins, so that you can be sure only authorized people have access to it.
Last but not least, you should know that it is quite unobtrusive, as it sits quietly in the system tray and does not bother you unless you receive a message from another member of the network.
Performance and conclusion
Hamachi works surprisingly fast without affecting the computer’s performance in any way, although it does such a fantastic job. Another good thing about this utility is that it manages to keep things simple, despite the fact that the application has been designed to perform such an important task.
All in all, Hamachi is the right answer to all users who want to create networks over the Internet, no matter the purpose: gaming, chatting, sharing files or any other activities.
