Re: Hamachi2 Gateways - Lessons Learned

Of course, everybondy replies instead of posting a new topic as ability to a start a new topic is yet another oversight of the LogMeIn folks. I am a very long-timer user of Rescue, Ignition, Hamachi, and Central.


Rescue is terrific. The rest of their product line is lost in space. I use their other produsts mentioned above for my personal access to our networks and they are mostly free . . .  so I get better value than what I pay for.


Hamachi is a good idea . . . poorly documented and executed. Their technicians do a good job trying to support it . . . but it is a hopeless task. Hamachi is flakey. Sometimes requires unistall/reinstall, sometimes works for months. Sometimes the same daily solution will work everyday, or most days, for a while.


If you are a network administrator or have other technical credentials, use LogMeIn products for convenience, but never in a production environment unless you like being on-call 24 x 7

Re: Hamachi2 Gateways - Lessons Learned

Hmmm, you must have found a rare, secret page that contained helpful information. LogMeIn has taken case to get rid of the page you reference.

Re: Hamachi2 Gateways - Lessons Learned

Hi and thanks to everybody for sharing your experience and experiments with hamachi.
Here I try to describe my scenario with my issues.

I've already installed hamachi on my raspberry pi and I was able to create my VPN with my gateway (raspberry_pi).
I am also able to connect to my gateway (raspberry) by remote session using ftp and ssh.

So, until now all the stuff is working very well.
The problem I have is that if I try to access to the IPCAM or router web page present locally in my gateway LAN, many times I am not able to reach them. In addition, if I try to run the desktop in my gateway (raspberry_pi) and I try to connect to my raspberry_pi using it's graphical interface, I am not able to see it (except for some times) and the connection drop irreversibly.
I have also to say that I am using a mobile 3G connection to connet my gateway (rasperry_pi) over internet.

So my questions are:

1. Is not the raspberry able to work like a gateway? Is it not powerful enough?
2. Do I need to set up some particular stuff in order to speed up and keep alive the connection with my gateway and also with all other devices connected to the lan?
3. Is it an internet connection problem?

What do you suggest and how can I solve my situatuion?

Thanks a lot in advance,
