I've been hosting a minecraft server for family & friends & we all connect with hamachi. It's been working fine until the other day when it all just stopped. Nothings changed or anything, Minecraft just no longer connects or detects the server.
We all connect in green & all states Direct Tunnel. We can use chat as that works fine. But what doesn't work is Ping & Ping-Local, they both time out. Also when diagnosing connection to specific client, we all get the same thing regardless.
Local results: Adapter configuration: OK Traffic test: Inbound traffic blocked, check firewall settings Peer results: [***-***-809] (stars added myself) Adapter configuration: OK Traffic test: Inbound traffic blocked, check firewall settings
It can't be a firewall issue or anything, because as of a few days ago. They all ran perfectly fine.
Also what's more confusing. When we open up single player & open to LAN, comps connected with hamachi usually detects as a LAN game. It no longer does. Also, comps connected to my network/wifi can't view LAN games if hamachi is online. We have to turn off hamachi & all LAN games work normal over my network. Which would be fine if everyone was connected to my network, but they ain't. They use hamachi to connect to my server or other LAN games.
I've tried every trick google spits out & nothing I can do fixes it. It can't be a local issue to a few computers in my home. Because I've connected over teamviewer to everyone else's computers & they too have exactly the same problem. Nothing seem's to work with Hamachi anymore!
Quick update. I have found the cause of all my problems with Hamachi.
I uninstall all firewalls from 2 systems to test. I also disabled windows firewall & rebooted. Hamach works perfect & it pings & pings local. Diagnosing individual cliants returns as OK. Everything works.
Now, If I turn on windows firewall on 1 machine, on the other, I get for Peer results Traffic test: Inbound traffic blocked, check firewall settings. If I enable my windows firewall, I get Local results Traffic test: Inbound traffic blocked, check firewall settings as well as Peer because the other machines firewall is still on.
Now. I've tested this with Avast premium, Comodo firewall, Comodo Internet Security & just windows firewall & the results are the same. I've specifically allowed hamachi in every way I can think of & google results say to do & still Hamachi is blocked.
So, I'm at a loss, other than running windows with no security at all. I cant think of any other way to make hamachi work.
