|Hamachi is easy to use application that allows users to create and manage virtual private networks. For example, if your home computer is connected to the Internet via Connection Sharing or Broadband Router, you will not generally be able to access it, for example, from your office. By installing Hamachi on both computers and clicking a couple of buttons you can connect instantly and securely. Now you can browse file shares, run remote desktop or even host a multiplayer game on one computer and connect to another. As if they were physically connected to the conduit. Hamachi is a networking technology that allows two computers on the Internet to communicate directly with each other, regardless of the presence of firewalls or address translation devices on the route between them. Interestingly, Hamachi enables peer-to-peer communication between two computers residing behind two different connection sharing devices. In the language of geeks - allows bidirectional NAT. Peer to peer connectivity becomes possible with the help of Hamachi servers that mediate the establishment of the first contact between peers. Once peers connect the traffic starts to flow directly between them. This not only ensures that data travels the best route, but also minimizes latency (ping time), and increases the speed of transfer. Hamachi is secure. All Hamachi communications are encrypted and authenticated using the protocols algorithm in accordance with industry standards. No one will be able to see what two Hamachi peers about. However, what is more important - Hamachi security architecture is completely open meaning that its description is available for inspection by all interested parties.
