How to Modify the Client's Role in a Network

A client's role defines what a client can do in a network.

  1. On the web site, go to the Networks > My Networks page.

    Result: Your Hamachi networks and clients are listed.

  2. On the My Networks page, click Edit next to the network you want to work with.

    Result: The Edit Network page is displayed.

  3. Click Add/Remove Members.
  4. Change member settings as follows:
    • Hub or spoke for a hub-and-spoke network (multiple hubs are allowed)
    • Gateway or member for a gateway network (one gateway node only)
    • Member for a mesh network


    Remember: A client assigned as the gateway in a gateway network cannot be a member of any other network.

  5. Click Save.

    Result: If the client is online, changes are applied immediately. If offline, changes are applied when the client comes online.
