LogMeIn Hamachi Editor's Review

Today, world is connected wirelessly with and without VPN. In coming time, VPN is going to be an absolute necessity for every organization. VPN stands for Virtual Private Network which is required to connect to the network of an organization without actually plugging into that particular network. This helps in better utilization on an organization’s resources such as important files and documents. To create a Virtual Private Network, you need to have special programs and one of the programs is Hamachi from LogMeIn. Hamachi is a simple yet effective client for creating sophisticated VPNs.LogMeIn Hamachi is available in two versions, managed and unmanaged. Unmanaged version of Hamachi allows you to create a mesh networked VPN in which no client can manage the network traffic. On the other hand, in managed version, in addition to meshed VPN creation, user is allowed to implement ‘hub and spoke’ network configuration also known as Gateway VPN which allows each client to manage traffic on network connection.

Installing Hamachi is quite simple. You just have to make hostname as it uses Machine name by default. It associates your hostname with an IP address which is delegated from Hamachi. IP address is visible right in client’s user interface.

Setting up Hamachi involves no complex procedures. You have the options to either join an existing network or create a brand new network from scratch. You are allowed to name the network according to your wish. It is not mandatory to associate your Hamachi Network to your LogMeIn account but doing so would get you additional features to play with. You can send customized links to other people to send invitations to join your Virtual Private Network(s). You have many more configuration choices in the main user interface. All the connected clients are visible their along with their assigned IP addresses. You can delete them or you can change their permissions to full or partial access. There are a few glitches in the other mode, which is managed mode. When working with ‘hub and spoke’ network, creating and editing roles wasn’t as efficient as in other mode. It didn’t worked when I created multiple hubs and applied new permissions. Instead of modifying permissions of all the clients, only one client was affected which was clearly not what I wanted. Setting up restrictions is also restricted in the free version. If you want better and in fact, more control over your network, you must go for paid version of this software.

Positive Points:
  -  Easy to use and setup.
  -  Creating LAN and Virtual Private Networks is efficient and easy.
  -  Security sets high standards.
  -  Multiple networking modes, managed and unmanaged, are supported.

Negative Points:
  -  Setting permissions is not as effective as it should be in ‘Hub and spoke’ mode.

Conclusion:
LogMeIn Hamachi is a good free program for creating VPNs for small to mid-level use but for higher requirements, you need to upgrade to paid version or look somewhere else. Overall its free software is good enough apart from a few minor glitches and hopefully they’ll be fixed in the next release. It sets high security standards in VPNs and is definitely suited best for small and mid-sized businesses.

Rating: 4.5/5
