1. Install Hamachi on any of your machines – it runs on Mac/Windows/Linux.
2. You are automatically assigned a static virtual IP address in the 5.x.x.x address space
3. Create or connect to a network – which has a name of your choosing, and is password XXXXX
4. Enjoy

On a Mac, that means wonderful things like iTunes music sharing work directly across the internet. No matter where where your computers are – you can see whoever is on the network as long as they have an internet connection. You can also immediately access a screen sharing or file sharing session through finder with a click of a button, whether the machine is next to you – or on the other side of the world.

It’s really great. And it really IS that easy.

Some helpful hints on installation:

The easiest way to get up in running is by using the installer in the [ugly] [HamachiX](http://hamachix.spaceants.net/) graphical front end. Their [documentation](http://spaceants.net/hamachix/manual/index.html) walk you through everything. For an even better experience, configure Hamachi to startup at boot with these [instructions](http://github.com/trak3r/hamachi-for-os-x-start-up-on-boot/tree/master) hosted over at GitHub

I have created a network where do I join it on the application?

Expert:  Johnny Mack replied 3 years ago.
So you already connected to it what you would need is the ip and log in info from whatever computer wanted to connect to. Which also would need some sort of vpn already setup on it as well.
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

So once I have logged into my computer from logmein there s a virtual VPN?

Expert:  Johnny Mack replied 3 years ago.
Exactly! So unless you give out ur info or have someone elses info nobody can connect to you :)
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

OK and once i am connected via logmein i will have a different public IP?

Expert:  Johnny Mack replied 3 years ago.
Yes the one you created earlier will be your ip for as long as your connected to logmein
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

But it doesn't change hmm i'm getting confused!

Expert:  Johnny Mack replied 3 years ago.
The on in your system isnt gonna change only whatever is going in and out of hamachi.
