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.
