What are the steps for installing the gateway PC? The only way I've seen is to add a PC as a client, then delete the client, then readd as the gateway. But when it is done in this order, the gateway PC does not take on an IP address from its subnet. It has an 5.x.x.x IP address.
Got it working by installing the client connection first and have it sitting unassigned, then create the network. Creating the network first, then assigning the gateway does not work. Also since I'm installing on a VM, had to turn on the "Promiscuous Mode" on my VMWare virtual switch.
I tried two paths that didn't work. Sometimes the gateway radio button/check box is available when adding a member to the network, sometimes it is not.
The first was Add Network, create network as Gateway, Add member which install Hamachi on the client I was using, then finish. When finished the client I was on had hamachi setup as a member, not a gateway, which should not happen because the first computer on that type of network needs to be the gateway.
I then did Add Network, create network as Gateway, and this time did not add any members, and finished. Then added a member, installed hamachi on my PC, and used the Edit link to attach Hamatchi loaded on my PC into the new network. When this happened the PC I was on attached as a member and not the Gateway. If I unattached that PC then reattached it, it would display a radio button that I could click and specify as a gateway.
If the member is created first, then a new network is added, the installation process sees the available member and they can be added as the gateway during initial setup.
I think Hamachi should also pop up a window asking if the gateway is installed on a Virtual Machine. If Yes then display a warning message about Promiscuous Mode especially if right after the Hamachi client on the gateway gets the message to reconfigure in gateway mode, it can no longer connect to the logmein.com server.
The problem described with SBS-2003 is exactly what rendered my server unavailable in the network. After re-installing the client the server was issued a 5. address as primary address. What would be the solution to apply a correct bridging?
