How to Update the Hamachi Client

You can manually update the client software.

This procedure must be executed on the client.

On Windows or Mac

The Hamachi client software can be updated from the client itself.

By default, the Hamachi client downloads updates automatically when you restart your client or when your client is online for a week. You should download updates manually if you turn off automatic updates.

  • To check whether you receive automatic updates, go to System > Preferences > Settings and verify that the Enable automatic update option is selected.
  • To manually download client updates, click Help > Check for Updates.

On Linux

Hamachi for Linux can be updated manually.

  1. Open the terminal.
  2. Execute the following command:
    sudo hamachi check-update

    The Hamachi version information is displayed.

  3. If your client is not up-to-date, follow the steps in this article: How to Install the Hamachi Client to a Local Computer.
