      Hamachi

      Hey guys

      Im having a problem with Hamachi and connecting to one friend in Sweden imparticular. Im not able to ping him through Hamachi and sometimes through MSDOS, since I had Sky Broadband this week

      Do you think he is blocked somehow ? Could I open up ports or a connection to his IP ?

      Any ideas would be much appreciated, thanks

      Re: Hamachi

      Hamachi connects to a central server on ports 12975 and 32976 over your Internet connection using TCP. These are destination ports on our server. Since Microsoft uses random outgoing ports to connect to specified target ports, you need to configure your firewall accordingly.

      The first port is used for an initial contact, and the second is used for an actual session. You can set a static UDP listening port by configuring it in Preferences > Detailed Configuration, but note that this will require you to forward that port's UDP traffic from your router to the machine, if you are behind a router. Also note that if you have multiple machines to do this on, you will need to choose different ports for each to avoid conflicts.

      It also uses dynamic local and remote UDP ports for communicating with other Hamachi peers.

      If the methods above fail in connecting the Mediation Server (bibi.hamachi.cc), Hamachi will try to use standard SSL connectivity (TCP port 443) to connect to it. This will not, however, affect the UDP parts.

      Hamachi also support http proxy servers, which can be configured in Hamachi Preferences > Detailed Configuration.

      Looks to me like you need to open some ports. Try this as a taster to see how you would do it. Its for the Sagem, but the principles are the same.

      Re: Hamachi

      Ok, thanks dude

      I did think it was something to do with ports, so I tried configuring it yesterday with no luck, but after seeing what you described now, I think I did it wrong. So I will take another shot today

      Thanks again, much appreciated

      Re: Hamachi

      I have just done a tutorial for Skype and the Netgear V2 router.

      Follow the guide and use the same sort of logic.
