I failed to see, in my re-reading of my post, where I "Slammed Hamachi"... Infact, if you take notice, that I like Hamachi so much, I am now hosting it on my site, http://www.sat-ops.com\hamachi.exe ... AND if you think Hamachi is bad, just ask Tyran Ormond ormondt@... ... This is the gentlemen that bestowed this beauty on me, which solved the issues over a ROUTED NETWORK ENVIROMENT via Internet. This guy has a pretty good head on his shoulders and has a pretty good idea of what's going on.
I am sorry that you misunderstood my post. And next time, you may not want to interupt an instruction set. That is not very good practice and us Tech's have to correct those interruptions as they lead to incomplete setups. So in the future, try to post your remairks and Quote the sections you wist to comment on. However, you suggest reading more.. well, I did, I took my 22 years of experience, and I read up on Hamachi, I looked into an old favorite program, and here's what's up...
Hamachi DOES route through alternative methods, this is true, however, with the added security in recent versions, plus security feature with good password habits, It is quite safe and reliable. I reccomend the implamentation of a small freeware program called THECODER which encodes and decodes data. Each PC must have a copy running ti decifer the encoding. Do your point has been carefully thought of and Networking Guru's have solved your issue. TheCoder is a great tiny program and when implamented with a custonized Batch file or .pif file, you are able to send "Line Garbage" for code rather than the normal data...
AND, "..If they wanted to." applies to any hacker in the free world with a little practice. Hamachi is doubtably one of these types of malicious entities however the risk may be present.
But thanks for the heads up, all the users may be aware of the potential dangers that come with ANY networking enviroment. And that Network security is not for the novice user. However, Advanced IT personell already know this. I took that for granit and once again, I thank you for pointing that out for newcomers to the networking world.
