Logmein Hamachi setup on linux

This was going to be a completely different post, but here we are. I needed a linux vm to access a hamachi network. Ultimately the build didn’t work right but the Hamachi part did.

First I got the latest build from logmein. At the time of this writing this was the latest build.

sudo wget http://vpn.net/installers/logmein-hamachi_2.1.0.198-1_amd64.deb

Then I did

dpkg -i logmein-hamachi_2.1.0.198-1_amd64.deb

And then I started it up by typing.

/etc/init.d/logmein-hamachi start

Now that that was done it was time to attach and login

So I did

sudo hamachi login

Then I had to attach it to my account by typing.

sudo hamachi attach myemail@address.com

Then I did the following command changing the 1s to my network id #

sudo hamachi do-join 111-111-111

And that was all I needed to do to get the turnkey running on a hamachi vpn network
