    Result: Your Hamachi networks and clients are listed.

  2. You will see the following message when you have requests from clients waiting to join your account or networks: You have x pending join requests. Click the pending join request link.

    Result: The Join Requests page is displayed.

  3. Choose Accept or Reject, as appropriate.
  4. Click Save.
Note: You may not be able to accept new members if your Hamachi subscription expires or if you reach the member limit of your network. See also Network Types ?>.
