Create a safe private network between two computers
The P2P protocol is frequently used to exchange files and other data between users, but some people regard it as quite an insecure method.
If you are too are worried about security when it comes to online transfers, use Hamachi instead. This handy tool lets you connect two computers via the Internet by creating your own private network and protecting it with industry-standard encryption algorithms. This means that your communications will be safe from prying eyes at all times, creating a private channel between both computers.
Hamachi features a simple interface that enables you to create personal safe networks in just a couple of steps. At first sight, it all looks very easy to use. Plus your connection is conveniently protected by an AES-256 algorithm.
Complications arise later on when trying to share files between computers: you'll have to do it through network sharing on Windows because it's not a feature Hamachi itself supports. In the end, I have to admit we were unable to share files over Hamachi during our tests вЂ“ you know how stubborn Windows folder sharing configuration can get. Oh well, at least we could have a chat вЂ“ a very safe one, of course.
Hamachi is a great solution to establish safe, private P2P connections between two computers; unfortunately it's not as easy to use as it seems at first sight.
