    I don’t get portfowarding part but everything else I did and still can’t ping to my friends.

    • Jammae

      It’s possible that your friends firewall blocks pings (ICMP Echo Requests). Step 26, is that step where i allow pings to come through from Hamachi.

    I can see my friends game on Age of mythology, but i can’t join it, “Attempting to connect” forever, and ive done everything above.

    • Jammae

      Did your friend do things as the same way? One cause of this problem can be missing port-forwarding settings. If your router is set to NAT, then you have to access your router and do port-forwading settings.

    Lars I have the same problem as you and I dont know the problem.:/

    • Jammae

      Check what i replied to Lars.

      • Ted Helslut Karlsson

        we both did the same thing, no luck the only thing that changed was that we found eatch other without searching for the IP adress. now I need to try change settings in the router then :p

  • Schaggs

  • Ted Helslut Karlsson

    For all of you out there, the only thing who works for mythology is tuungle, i play with it myself and its the best internet lan program iv seen even its beta. So download and just make an account then there is an tutorial for eatch game inside the program. Easy,

  • Blackmed

    hmmm, I can get into a game, my friend can see my game, though when he tries to connect, it says connection failed. Also, at step 24, my Hamachi network is an: Unidentified network, and I cannot change it to home network, since ‘Public network’ is black and not highlighted as blue.

    • Ted Helslut Karlsson

      As I wrote down there. use Tuungle instead.. much easier and 100% work

  • Nikhil

    Is Mw3 gonna work…………!

  • Ted Helslut Karlsson

  • DJł Gomez

  • blackchow

    hey, so i’ve followed your steps before and they worked out fine, but i recently had to reinstall hamachi and now the settings applied in step 10 won’t save after i restart my computer (and it says i have to restart my computer for the settings to actually be applied). any idea why this might be and what i can do? i’ve tried it a hundred times.
