VPN client for gaming purposes

Hello,

I have been looking for a VPN client t support lan gaming over internet.

had a look at Hamachi to setup a private lan network but it seems to be failing.

prob is that other players cannot find the created games.


so the question would be does anyone know of a client that i can use to create a personal game server without the hassle of hamachi?

games i would like to lan are

Tom Clancy's H.A.W.X.
Split Second
Need for Speed Undercover
and some others but these are the prefered ones


or maybe someone can help me configure the settings so that Hamachi works :P Coz i've been up and over google a million times but to no result any help or suggestions would be highly appreciated

running win7 64-bit ultimate btw

  1. sounds like you may have to forward some ports on your router. check out http://portforward.com/ and see what ports need to be forwarded for each game. follow the instructions and see if it clears things up. this site helped me a good bit when having similar problems. some routers already have settings for different games for this. if yours doesn't, you can usually save "profiles" for each game after you have figured out what ports to forward for the the game that you are trying to play.

    hope this helps!
  2. Hamachi works fine for me. Did you create a group on Hamachi for all your friends to join? Can you all see each other from within the Hamachi client?
  3. hey guys thanks for the reactions

    i thought it had something to do with the router at first so i configured it allready but still no luck.


    and we created a group and the funny thing is that we can see each other.

    pinging and chatting works fine too thats why im a little confused O_o
  4. OK, if you can all see and chat to each other in Hamachi, you should be able to find each other in the game lobby as well. Have everyone check and confirm that the game is set up to use the 5.xxx.xxx.xxx Hamachi IP address. Enter it manually if needed.
  5. thnx for the reaction herr_koos

    but i allready tried the solution you gave, forced the game to use the hamachi ip with ForceBindIP but still nothing
  6. I also use hamachi and encountered the same problem (for Resident Evil 5). My solution was to download a little program that enabled me to keep constant connection between machines and voila, it worked. I'm trying to remember which program it was...Hmm. I'll get back to you on that one.

    Until then...have the host and clients ping each other while trying to find the Host. (i.e. ping -t 192.168.x.x the "-t" will allow you to ping indefinitely, just hit Ctrl+C to cancel it. Let me know if it works. I'll try and find the program I had used tonight and get back to you by tomorrow.

If it works, once everyone has connected to the host, cancel the ping by hitting Ctrl+C. Let me know if this works. I'll try and find the program (some simple DOS program) I had used and get back to you by tomorrow (if it still isn't working).

    Has the ping -t worked for you? The program I was referring to is simply called "Hamachi fix". It's a utility that allows the hamachi tool to "wake up" to enable clients to connect to the Host.

    You can try this as well: http://wiki.rtsu.net/Hamachi_Fix
  9. Thanks for the reply Alex i will try this one out for sure

    mondaty will be the first chance i have after that ill post a reply :)

    i sure hope that the hamachi fix works :)


    i'll come back with the results!

  10. btw i noticed at the wiki site that there was no guide for win 7

    will the vista way work on my machine running win 7 ultimate 64-bit?

  11. They're close enough under the hood that a Vista-related fix should work on 7 as well.

    Strange that you're struggling though; Hamachi works perfectly fine on my Win 7 Professional.
