Provide remote support via a web-based service
Authored by: Maraklov on Jul 10, '07 04:59:05PM
The company also has a free (and premium, if you dig their features) service called Hamachi that allows for NAT transversal. It essentially sets you up on your own private encrypted network (VPN). I use it in combination with VNC software as their LogMeIn app on my Mac crashes rather frequently. I've used Hamachi for a long while and it allows me to use Bonjour connections from anywhere I am accessing the internet.

There is also HamachiX which provides a nice GUI interface to Hamachi. HamachiX will also handle the installation of Hamachi under the covers.

But do you have any step-by-step instructions on how you setup Hamachi, make a connection, and start the VNC server (which VNC server do you use), and establish a VNC session (which VNC client do you use).

That might be useful information.
