Answer

Hamachi does support IPX/SPX, however the driver has to be installed on the Hamachi network adapter first.

  1. In Windows, go to Control Panel.
  2. Select  Network Connections or Network and Sharing Center.
  3. Right-click or click on the Hamachi network adapter and select Properties.
  4. Click the Install button, highlight Protocol, and click Add.
  5. Choose NWLink IPX/SPX/NetBIOS Compatible Transport Protocol, and click OK.

Hamachi is now configured to support IPX.

Important:
Windows Vista does not officially support the installation of the IPX protocol.
