I have been unsuccessful in hooking to my home slim server using Hamachi today. Get errors saying their servers are having "too many connection requests" and to try later.

I wonder if they have our grown their present hardware?

<edit> finally hooked up, only get a "yellow star" and unable to ping my home server. Also, interestingly, it is about 2 wks since my free premium himachi trial ran out and now I can no longer get hooked up with the free version. Hmmmmm. Does anyone have the free version still working?

Well, answering my own question. Went to the Hamachi forum and discovered the following announcement:

Posted: Tue May 01, 2007 8:22 am Post subject: Connectivity Issues 5/01

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hamachi is currently experiencing server issues.

Our development team is working as fast as possible to fix the situation, as our main priority is ensuring the stability of the Hamachi system. We will advise once the maintenence is complete.

Thank you for your patience

Well the servers are back up, but their appears to be a bigger problem: Part of the problem seems to be an upgrade I did yesterday to the newest hamachi client software (1.0.2.1)

On their forums, many users, myself included, have lost our free connectivity due to some changes in the newest version.

Well, here I go again, back to square one with the streaming to work across the corporate firewall. Guess I will have to attempt the ssh tunneling

I set up openvpn to do mine.

My slimserver is linux but its also supposed to work on windows. My client is windows. I configured openvpn to use port 443 and opened the port on my router to direct it to the slimserver. I can now tunnel quite happily thru my works proxy server.

It did look a bit daunting at first to set up but proved to be easier than I thought. The best bit is you dont rely on someone else's VPN service as your running your own.

Yes, that is indeed why I went with Hamachi, because both the vpn and ssh methods looks overwhelming to the uninitiated.

Guess I just gotta jump and and give it a try!

thanks for your input.

*bump*

shadowboxer: are you still using Hamachi or have you switched to something else? I'm curious whether your problem was permanent or not. Are there any people still using Hamchi?

Since the Hamachi software update, it completely quit working on my work corporate network. Have been streaming pandora when I am at that location. Haven't attempted the ssh tunnel thing yet. Gonna eventually though.

I've been using hamachi for other purposes awhile now with generally no issues.

I'm currently trying to setup my SB3 to connect to a remote server using the hamachi IP. Basically, trying to lock that server dowm to only hamachi connections. So far I can easily stream to the public IP, but the hamachi IP is not public addressable so having some difficulty with the config (no hamachi client on the SB3 itself).

Hi Dale,

I've been looking at other options too. Did you search for Hamachi
alternatives? A quick search turned up these:

OpenVPN (http://openvpn.net/): mentioned by another poster. It
shouldn't be too daunting, since it has several GUI options I think:
http://sourceforge.net/project/screenshots.php?group_id=152302&ssid=21571
http://sourceforge.net/project/screenshots.php?group_id=133612&ssid=20685
http://openvpn.se/

Tinc (http://www.tinc-vpn.org/examples/windows-install): doesn't have
a GUI, but pretty well documented from the look of it.

SSL-Explorer (http://3sp.com/showSslExplorerCommunity.do) - looks
pretty full-featured, and maybe overkill, but would take a bit of
investigation. Again, plenty of GUI tools for admin.

Wippien (http://wippien.com/): looks more like Himachi, although it
also does IM.

Cheers,
Geoff

Hi!

Life has gotten in the way. Haven't had a chance to look into the problem further. Listening to Pandora at work.

Plan to go with some type of ssh tunneling since that client is already built into Softsqueeze.
