LogMeIn Hamachi is an interesting application that can replicate a local area network in order to allow users to play various games in multiplayer mode. In the past, local are networks were quite common and neighbors, especially, were able to play games with the aid of such a connection. However, as times have changed, it actually became harder to create such a connection and emulating apps like the current one have appeared. The fact that Hamachi is distributed for free and provides a series of good features for its users allow it to maintain one of the leading positions in the market.
Hamachi can be installed with ease and it will provide a small interface that has only a few buttons. However, in order to work with this app, users have to create an account in order to connect to networks or host one by themselves. The tool will constantly provide information about the internet connection and if the app itself is granted permissions to use the internet. This way, users can troubleshoot issues with more ease, although the process of creating and connecting to a LAN is straightforward and there should not be any problems.
The connections established with the aid of Hamachi are totally secure, using SSL encryption methods, and because there is no use of supplementary hardware, the tool is extremely flexible. Networks can be password protected and they can have custom names, so other users can easily recognize the in a list of available networks. Moreover, users who constantly connect to the same network can add it to favorites and thus, they will be able to connect to them within a single mouse click. The list of available games that can make use of Hamachi is available inside the Help file and further info can be found on the developer’s website.
