Download free Hamachi for Windows 8: Create a safe private network between two computers
Hamachi is a handy tool lets you connect two computers via the internet by creating your own virtual private network (VPN) and protecting it with industry-standard encryption algorithms.
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 – you know how stubborn Windows folder sharing configuration can get. Oh well, at least we could have a chat – a very safe one, of course.
