Create VPN on-demand

LogMeIn 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

LogMeIn Hamachi is a virtual private network service that is set up in minutes and gives you remote and secure access to your corporate network from any location that has an Internet connection.

Unlike hardware and software VPN systems, Hamachi is an on-demand virtual network service that allows you to provide remote connections to your users and systems, without worrying about the underlying technology and infrastructure.

Each Hamachi client has a virtual IPv4 (IP) address in the range and an IPv6 address. The virtual IP address is unique and allows access to the client from any other Hamachi network that shares at least one mesh or star network in common.
