Some of my experience of installing hamachi.
Let's start with network ABC a little. If you have local network you can share your folders/files/whole disk so it can be visible from any PC in this paricular network. to do that without headache all your computers must be in SAME network (same mask etc).
Or, in case all your computers are located far away from each other, connect to Internet by different ISPs etc, you may create so called VPN - Virtual Privat Network. There are some soft that can do that, but usualy a so called static IP is needed - and only few Internet users can enjoy such service from ISP. Usualy, each time you connect to Internet - manualy or automaticaly - different IP adress is assigned to your unit (PC, Mac, eTrayz etc).
When you install hamachi on your PC, it looks like you get one more network card with its own IP-adress - static one that is assigned forever to you by Logmein company! So you have TWO IP-adresses: one - usualy dynamic that is given to you by your ISP and one static given to you by hamachi soft. And in that case you can join your computers (etrayz's etc) into virtual network and share files, folders etc across Internet.
If you start creating new network on Logmein start page (https://secure.logme...ducts/hamachi2/
), you are most likely to loose your way if you are not computer geek.
So you should start with downloading and installing hamachi soft on PC first
After installing soft, start it (switch on button in left upper corner of soft window) and create a new network (network-create new network). You will be asked for unic name of this network, create a password for joining that network and some other stuff.
After all you will join thet new network but you will be the only member of it!
So next step you install hamachi on another computer, start it as above, but as for network, you don't need to create a new one, but to join existing one. So you choose Network-Join existing one, then input the name of the network you have already created on first computer (be carefull - you need to input it exactly it was created!), input password you have already created - and voila! - two computers are joind to same virtual network and it does not matter where they are located phisicaly - they share each other!
You can join as many as 16 PCs in same manner (you can join more, but it will take money!) and now let's join etrayz to this network.
First, stop hamachi proccess from Installer main window, if you have already started it. Now edit /etc/init.d/hamachi (in Putty or WinSCP)
# CHANGE THIS VALUES
NICK="eTrayz" (or whatever you like)
NETWORK="Exact name of a network you created with your PC"
PASSWORD="the password you created while creating your network"
save, close and restart hamachi from Installer main window.
If everything goes all right, you will see a new member of network in hamachi window on your PC under name you assigned to your etrayz! If you right-click on it and choose "Browse", your privat disk will open in Windows explorer and now you are ready to write/reade/copy/delete files without any FTP, WinSCP or Putty or whatever!
Sure, if you command your etrayz from local PC, you don't need all that - you just simply share etrayz public disk and that is all, but if you (as I do) have your etrayz in Moscow and copy files from it in Tokyo - you will need hamachi!
I am using Hamachi to join 4 PCs in Moscow, 2 in Japan, 1 in Cyprus and 1 in Latvia and I am always able to quick copy/backup/etc files between all these PCs without any additional soft, just copying them in explorer (or FAR, or Total commander) window. More, I can even install Radmin (or similar soft) on each PC to control it remotely as if seat in front of it! (But that is another story about PC, not etrayz...)
