Hamachi – secure mediated peer to peer

Not open-source, but this is a no-configuration VPN for small sized networks. While many would just say this would be great, I tend to look to this on a small scale base. I would never implement this tool in anything but a home-based network being that there needs to be more control from a system perspective.
But the great thing about Hamachi is…. zero-configuration. You install it, set up the network you want to be on, put in the passwords, and you’re off and running just like you were connected into the network before. Nice.
Test it out. It beats any other product out there for this scale and it supports Windows, Linux and soon Mac OSX.
UPDATE (12/17): fasteddie brought this up in the OpenVPN post, but I had already written this post and had it scheduled. Crazy isn’t it. Thanks for pointing it out though!

    Just wanted to point out my personal use for Hamachi: iTunes. I set up my entire library on my desktop (running Ubuntu and mt-daapd no less) and stream my music to my laptop, anywhere in the world. Saves me from having to carry all 40 gigs on my 20 gig iPod.
