Hamachi - to build your own secure network
Report a new version of the program
Hamachi is suitable for building your own secure network of geographically disparate computers. The created connection on the Internet is built as a local physical network. A VPN connection is being used.
In a particular case, Hamachi makes it easy to create a virtual network for network games, the interaction of disparate computers involved in performing a common task.
Every application developed for local networks knows how to work in this environment. The created LAN network runs on top of the Internet. The transmitted data is protected. The exchange is peer-to-peer. When building a virtual network, the UDP protocol is used. The program is often used to create a network of servers with "gray" IP addresses and client computers, which greatly complicates the decryption of traffic. This protocol, when connecting two nodes, assumes the presence of a third node, while data exchange occurs directly between the nodes. The third node is only used to discover all nodes on the network. Communicating hosts can be invisible to NAT and firewalls.
