I hate trolls!
You know what I mean…those individuals that skulk around looking for an opportunity to tap into your network or file transmissions with the intent of stealing your sensitive information. Those kinds of people just really bother me. Over and above the fact that mean people stink, what I send to another person or website is no one’s business but my own (and the other person designated as the information receiver). That’s why I really like applications like Hamachi. It’s a multiplatform secure networking tool that works for both Windows and Mac.
With Hamachi, you can create virtual private networks on-demand. LogMeIn’s Hamachi is a hosted VPN service that lets you securely extend LAN-like networks to distributed teams, mobile workers and your gamer friends alike, in minutes. With it, you can remotely network printers, cameras, gaming consoles and more, all on demand and all over the web.
When implemented, users are provided access to your network resources, from a centralized gateway, without modifying firewalls or network routers. You can provide user access
to specific computers, printers, drives, etc. Hamachi also allows you to connect all of your network clients to each other. You can quickly and easily create a simple, virtual, mesh network that allows remote machines to directly connect to each other, thereby giving users basic network access to all the network resources they need, all while using 256-bit SSL encryption, employing the same level of security as your bank, over both public and private networks.
