Problems at startup on Mandriva


I installed Hamachi on Mandriva and made it starting up with the system:


 cp /home/[MyUserName]/software/hamachi- /etc/init.d/


 # chmod +x /etc/init.d/hamachi


 # chkconfig --add hamachi


When the system starts up I can see that Hamachi is connected but I can't connect to my addres in fact (I do it from another Windows machine) and this address is not pingable though the address is marked with green star. From Mandriva I can't connect to the Windows machine as well. When I try to perform:

 # hamachi start

I receive an info that hamachi is already stated. When I try to perform:

# hamachi list


# hamachi login 

I receive info: Hamachi does not seem to be running. Have you run "hamachi start"?


Where is the problem? Firewalls are turned off on both machines. I'd be very gratefull if someone could help me with this issue.




Below is a full /home/[MyUserName]/software/hamachi- file (MyUserName I replaced with my real user name off course)

/bin/chgrp [YourUserName] /var/run/tuncfg.sock

hamachi_stop() {
echo "Stopping hamachi..."
killall tuncfg
/usr/bin/hamachi -c /home/[YourUserName]/.hamachi stop

hamachi_restart() {
sleep 1

Re: Problems at startup on Mandriva

Have you tried hamachi login / list etc as root?


This is the init script I use on CentOS 5
