Hey Guys,

I've used Hamachi in the past on XP but i'm trying to use it now on Vista to connect to my parent's PC so I can do remote admin via file shares as well as VNC.

It connects fine and shows my parents PC as being online in the Hamachi console however I cant ping their PC or connect via VNC (or Vice-Versa). I do have access at the moment just via the plain old internet but I want to restrict this to the Hamachi connection only for security reasons but at the moment it wont.

I've tried playing with the Firewall setting at both end but with no joy. Any suggestions?

I would change the Hamachi connection to be Private, and let the Internet connection as public.

Then go into Control Panel / Administrative / Firewall and change the rules for Private networks to allow all connections, or at least allow connections to Hamachi.exe.

The Windows Vista Firewall allows a great deal of management - a lot more than simply On / Off.

All good now. Changing my LAN connection to 'Public' solved the problem.

Freitasm, is there any way to configure the Hamachi client to work when the default ports it uses are blocked by a firewall (Say in  a public location such as connecting via a HotSpot?) to use something that isn't blocked?
