Tool to create virtual private networks
How to create a virtual network between several computers to keep them connected? It's really easy if you've got Hamachi because this software is precisely an app capable of configuring virtual private networks (VPNs), being able to establish direct links between computers under a NAT firewall without requiring any user configuration on behalf of the user.
LogMeIn Hamachi is a very easy-to-install and configure software application. Never before had it been so easy to create a local private network. Hamachi uses the Internet connection to establish 256-bit SSL encryption. Thanks to this you won't have to worry about the security of your communications.
This software can be used and applied to many different aspects, being able to use it in professional environments and companies to connect several different PCs or for entertainment purposes, gathering on the same network the computers of all the video gamers or even to share files.

How does it work?
The program is very easy to use because it has a simplified interface from which you can create a new network or integrate the computer into one that already exists. For this purpose, you simply have to make sure that the PC has the Hamachi client application and that the access data is correct. If you have a problem with the configuration you can always have a look at the official Hamachi manual.
Its functioning is based on the server that manages LogMeIn and that connects to the software installed on the users' computers. The latter manages the connections between the different computers creating a safe tunnel that connects computers securely.
