Re: Hamachi slows down the performance of a certain program.

Hi @EstebanR,


Most LAN capable applications are useable over Hamachi. However, there are external limitations that...

  • The application might not be optimized for data transfer over a non-LAN connection. Since you are always ultimately limited by your Internet connection itself, this can always be a factor in any application used over Hamachi as compared to over a physical LAN.
  • You may be exhausting either your upload or download bandwidth. Over utilizing your Internet connection on either end will have an impact on the other. For instance, peer to peer file sharing, streaming media, gaming, or hosting web services on your connection will impact both upload and download capabilities. This will appear as slow ping times, slow file transfers, lagged streaming media, lagged/dropped game connections, or sometimes even slow connections or the inability to connect to the Hamachi mediation server.

It's interesting to see how Hamachi, as a networking tool, affects the performance of certain programs. While it might slow down some applications, it also provides valuable remote networking capabilities that are essential for many users. For those experiencing slowdowns, I recommend checking out for alternative solutions and optimization tips. This site offers a wealth of information on improving software performance and enhancing network setups, which could be very helpful in mitigating any issues caused by Hamachi. It's all about finding the right balance and resources to ensure smooth operation.
