Gateway network

Use the gateway network type to provide transparent access to your entire network from a centralized Hamachi gateway. Members of a gateway network, such as mobile workers, will see one computer acting as a gateway towards an entire LAN, thus making all network resources accessible.
Note: Gateway networks are not supported on Azure.

Hamachi client

The term Hamachi client refers to both the Hamachi software itself and any computer or smartphone with Hamachi client software installed. With proper permission from network owners, Hamachi clients can become members of any Hamachi network.

Hamachi network

For Hamachi, a network is not a physical network, but rather a group of users who want to use common resources or applications (two or more Hamachi clients interconnected by tunnels make up a Hamachi network). Hamachi offers three network types: meshed, hub-and-spoke, and gateway.

Hub-and-spoke network

In a hub-and-spoke network, one or more computers act as hubs, while other clients connect as spokes. Spokes connect to hubs, but never to each other.

LogMeIn Central

LogMeIn Central is LogMeIn's Essential Remote Services solution for IT professionals and small and medium businesses. Certain premium Hamachi features are only available to LogMeIn Central subscribers.

Mesh network

In a mesh network, every member is connected to every other member.


Network Address Translation


A computer that is a member of a computer network.

Peer Label

The Peer Label is used to define your online presence to other Hamachi users. This is what other users see as your identification when you are in a Hamachi network.

Unattached network

The term Unattached network refers to any Hamachi network that was created on an unattached client. Unattached networks can only be mesh networks and they cannot be managed on the web using the My Networks page or LogMeIn Central.
