"Worked with Server 2003, crashes daily with Server 2012"

March 18, 2014  |  By wburychka

 |  Version: LogMeIn Hamachi 2.2.0.188

Pros

When it works, it is flexible and powerful as a VPN with a mix of clients and servers. The annual subscription is a nominal cost when it works.

Cons

Logmein has still (3/18/14) not fixed the stability problem with Server 2012. This is about to be the deal breaker for us. Once or twice a day, it crashes the server.

The Hamachi forum is crowded with gamers using the free version, so it is hard to find useful information. Perhaps when Logmein dumps the free version of Hamachi, things will get better.

Summary

Check the Logmein Hamachi forums before you subscribe to the product. When it works, it is a great product. Right now 3/2014 with MS Server 2012, it is a very troubled service.

"WORSE NOW THAN EVER!"

November 19, 2012  |  By RegularJoe79

 |  Version: LogMeIn Hamachi 2.1.0.159

Pros

> None, just terrible all around.

Cons

> TERRIBLE CONNECTIVITY: Lose connection multiple times from every computer (office and home computers, apple and pc, etc) for years now.
> TERRIBLE CUSTOMER SERVCE: They will just tell you to contact everyone else (pc manufacturer, verizon, etc.)
> EXPENSIVE: Subscription is cheap, but in order not to lose the connection they'll convince you to keep upgrading your internet speed. We went from 10MB to 35 MBS, full subscription service with "direct connection", one year later and still dropped service every day.

Summary

We've been a LogMeIn Hachi client for 3 years and we're done. It was free when they came out, then started channeling free (non-subscription) client to "indirect" connections which meant your computer would freeze, never log in. We upgraded to subscription and it was okay for about two months. Then they released new version and it went to hell, said we needed faster speeds. We upgraded once a quarter until we finally reached 35 MB upload and download. Still after one year at that speed, freezes out computers every day. Ever call customer service, expect to be on hold for an hour and then their tech support just blames everyone else (our computers, verizon fios, fire walls, the weather, Monday's are bad for Hamachi, terrorism in the middle east, etc). We had everything checked out including verizon reps, firewalls specialists, networking specialists - everything is working find. Last call today because their service is down again, on hold for 48 minutes then went to Hamachi company voicemail saying they're having "technical difficulties" and hung up on us. Even with the daunting task of switching over 10 employees computers to a new server STILL got a 10-0 vote from everyone to cancel the Hamachi subscription service. WORST COMPANY AND REMOTE ACCESS SERVICE EVER, STAY AWAY!

"Does the job very well without fuss or ads."

June 27, 2012  |  By Stephenhr100

 |  Version: LogMeIn Hamachi 2.1.0.159

Pros

I have used Hamachi for 3 years and it has always worked well. Does not use significant resources and does not intrude. When I have to connect from our remote office it has always worked. I put my notebook into sleep mode and travel to the office. I bring it out of sleep, plug into the local LAN and in 20 seconds or so I am reconnected to my server across town in a secure connection.

Cons

The initial setup had some rough spots for me. I'm not an IT person. More general management. Probably me not understanding what was what. At first it seemed to hang and require rebooting, but it did work then. After a few weeks things just started working smoothly without any input.

Summary

If it works on this my notebook it works. I run an old Dell B130 laptop with XP and 1GB ram. Never reformatted the drive. Even with maybe 6 years of Windows crud buildup and constant use it works very well. XP is dead. Long live XP.

"Version 2.1.0.166: Far from as good as it used to be."

April 08, 2012  |  By xIronGolemx

 |  Version: LogMeIn Hamachi 2.1.0.159

Pros

Simple, easy to set up, easy to use. Can password networks and toggle manual approval for new joining members.

Cons

Speeds aren't that impressive for gaming, but it's one of the few free options. That said, 'free' is used loosely here, and possibly not for long. Networks used to be fully free before they were cut down to a max of 8 members for free. Recently cut to merely 5 members in a network.

Summary

The recent cutback in network size is very hampering, and screams nothing but "money-hungry". In the past, the lag and connection problems were minimal and often bearable.

Now I can no longer in good conscience recommend (or even mention) Hamachi for LAN party use, as it is likely not even qualified for most LAN party sizes.

Old Hamachi with unrestricted network sizes would have been 3.5 or even 4.0 stars from me. After the network sizes were cut down to eight maximum, I only found it to be worth a 3.0 star rating. With the new network sizes down to five members, I can't rate it higher than a 2.5 star rating.

"Best VPN out there!"

February 15, 2012  |  By retiredtech

 |  Version: LogMeIn Hamachi 2.1.0.159

Pros

Free for up to 8 users in non commercial use.
Easy to set up and use.

Cons

Obsolete networks that were created in the past need to be somehow deleted. I have at least 2 older networks with the same name but different ID numbers.

Summary

Excellent product that has been out long enough to be well tested.

"Great way to easily create a Virtial Private Network."

July 10, 2011  |  By retiredtech

 |  Version: LogMeIn Hamachi2 2.0.2.85

Pros

Easy to use and set up a virtual private network (VPN).

Cons

I can't get rid of old connections that are no longer in service without creating a new network altogether.

Summary

Great and fast VPN tunnel setup that is easy to use and free for non commercial use. Combine it with RealVNC and you have complete remote control of a remote computer without the fear of someone listening in.

"LogMein Easy To Use"

October 13, 2010  |  By karnbach

 |  Version: LogMeIn Hamachi2 2.0.2.85

Pros

Better than Remote Desktop... I can browse and mainpulate another computer and NOT lock the computer from being seen. Great troubleshooting aid when I am on travel and my children need my help.

Cons

The only thing I can think of as being negative is that I have one coputer configured with the Pro version... and can't re-configure it as free... so I'm thinking they're going to as me to pay... will I buy? I don't know... depends on the cost.

Summary

I really like the product... I don't know how much this will cost but I hope it isn't much because it is a decent tool for me to assist my family when I am on travel.
