I have found great use for the Hamachi program on my machines, especially in doing maintenance, etc. for family members and the like. But, since LogMeIn has taken them over, I fear the day when they will make a gimping change or completely end support for their free users.
Hamachi uses their centralized server to configure connections, but with that method, they can change or enforce things with which I wouldn't necessarily agree. Again, they haven't done this, but does anyone know of an alternative piece of software that would allow me to install a virtual network on clients that would connect to my own server to create peer connections?
Basically, I would want a Hamachi clone*, but one that would use my own server. Open-source would would be even better.
* - As a personal requirement, it needs to run as a silent service in Windows
