The 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.

A command-line version of Hamachi is also available for Linux and officially supported on the following distributions:

  • Ubuntu 16.04 LTS or newer LTS
  • CentOS 7.2 or newer

About the Relationship Between the Client and Your Account

The Hamachi client can only be used with a LogMeIn ID, as an attached member of an account.

About the Hamachi Virtual IP Address

Every Hamachi client has one virtual IPv4 (IP) address in the 25.x.x.x range and one IPv6 address. The virtual IP address is globally unique and is used to access the client from any other Hamachi network with at least one common mesh or hub-and-spoke network.

Gateway networks integrate smoothly into the LAN in terms of addressing. 25.x.x.x addresses are not available for a gateway network. Instead, the local address space is used. See also How to Assign an IP Range for Gateway Members on Windows.
