    Hi,

    i have searched arround for some experiences with hamchi or some analysis
    about the security and privacy aspects while using this tool/service...

    but i have not found any analysis of the privacy drawbacks, wich mabye exist (or not)?

    I my tests, the service obviously rocks for lan gaming over the inet, with a zero
    configuration vpn...

    But there is kind of bad feeling feeling while using closed software, which:
    -- installs a network adapter to windows (driver, admin access to my system)
    -- ENCRYPT ALL his traffic and used SERVER CONNECTS for his nat traversal!
    -- free but closed software for a rocking service :/

    I'am grateful for all comments, links or analysis of this facts....

    greetings
    Mr. Kartoffel

    Surely you either trust the software/authors, and use/enjoy it for your own benefit, or you go down the paranoid/safest route and find another more-complicated solution?

    I'm sure that for gaming it's an excellent choice, as it is for other small-scale or non business-critical applications. I've tried it out a few times and it seemed to work fine straight away, which is really what it's all about.

    Give it a whirl and see how it performs.

    It's a very nice application that can be used to share files, chat and use it access to a remote computer with security, for example...

    I'm waiting for the final...
