Re: I am online but appearing offline.

I have someone who uses a network I set up that Is having the same problem. They are connected, but the network name in their hamachi Is showing grayed out and the stars are grey but the computers on the network are showing white. Is there a problem with the Hamachi Servers?

Re: I am online but appearing offline.

Exactly the same thinghas hapened to me today adding a new client to my network.

googled the problem and found this thread but no more info; im very worried about this problem... please someone help!!

 

I have tried reinstallig and re-entering the network. Im using cloned hardware and software; i mean this machine is exactly the same than many others in the hamachi network; im using the same network (router, switch,e tc), so i cannot figure out what can be the problem except some hamachi servers issue.

 

any clue??? thanks!

Re: I am online but appearing offline.

ok, this worked for me:

 

-Unninstal the hamachi client

-Kick the client in the hamachi that manages the network.

-Delete the folder documents and settings\user\program data\hamachi

-Install hamachi again, join the network.

 

Worked for me, i dont know if my ip is the same but i dont care.

 

I have restarted a couple of times, run as a service and everything was fine.

 

 

hope it helps,

 

regards.

that is a last resort solution. i would like to find something that i wouldnt have to tell all the people who use it on the other end, which is more than 10 people, to reinstall hamachi. this is not just one isolated user.

I had this problem on my server this afternoon.  Find the Hamachi network connection (Right click My Network Places -> Properties) then do a right-click ->  Repair.  This should reset all of the network protocols and get you back up and running in no time.

Re: I am online but appearing offline.

so this is a problem at the end where the network is created? or is that something on the client side?

Re: I am online but appearing offline.

I'm not sure what the root cause of the problem is.  Hamachi worked fine on my server for months, then I ran into this problem after booting one morning.   It's an easy fix so I didn't press the issue.

Re: I am online but appearing offline.

Try RIGHT clicking on the network name in the hamachi window (next to the grayed out circle), and select "go online".  This worked for me.
