I've an interesting problem. I cannot SSH into my home server from outside my internet providers network ( I tried to setup dyndns thingy, but it just didn't work out, I learned my provider is a bitch.

I was thinking, maybe I could use hamachi - set it up on my linux box, this way I will have IP address accessible from outside provider network.

But I've limited knowledge of how this neat program works, so will I be able to access my apache2 with hamachi IP from any computer in the world? (I've a feeling I will need to install hamachi on all computers from where I want to access the server).

  1. Do you bind ssh to all IP? netstat -na | grep :22
  2. If you'll create Hamachi-tunnel over additional hamachi-interface (and ssh listening on it), when yes - you'll be able to ssh on your hamachi-ip

1. Yes. 2. That's a bit too hard for me... can explain in detail please? what do you mean by additional hamachi-interface? – Sandro Dzneladze Oct 10 '11 at 10:57
Well, I can't add screenshots into answer, thus - will answer in text-only mode. After installing Hamachi you'll see new added network interface in Network Connections, which Hamachi will use on work. See also – Lazy Badger Oct 10 '11 at 11:27
