HOW TO: Hamachi on android

Hamachi is a vpn program which can be used to link up computers. With hamachi on an android you would be able to access the files on multiple computers from anywhere in the world (provided that you have wifi, 3g, 4g or any other type of internet connection on your phone) this is useful when programs like dropbox can't hold the file that you want because it is too large and you know that you will need it at some point when you are on the go.
To get hamachi on android there are a few requirements which must be met first
1. Internet access

2. Ubuntu/Debian/Backtrack or any other Linux distro on your phone.

3. Rooted phone (root access)
Once those 3 requirements have been met you should be set to go.

1. Boot up the Linux distro on your phone

2. Either open up the browser on the distro or the browser on your phone.

3.  go to and download the hamachi file. If you did this on the distro then you may skip to step 5A

4. If it hasn't happened already, move that whole file to emmc on your phone

5A. Move the hamachi file from the downloads folder in the distro to /root

5. Open up the distro and copy that hamachi file from /mnt/emmc to /root

6. Open terminal and cd into that directory and run the following commands

7. sh ./install

8. mkdir /dev/net

9. mknod /dev/net/tun c 10 200

10. apt-get install sudo

11. apt-get install libcrypto++7

12. ln -s /usr/lib/ /usr/lib/

13. sudo tuncfg

14. hamachi-init

15. hamachi start

16. hamachi login

17. hamachi set-nick enter desired nickname here

18. hamachi join networkname password

19. DONE

Here is a qr code for the Hamachi file download 


  1. can it be possible that you can connect multiple android using WLAN?

  2. yes this is possible, just make sure that if you are using hamachi each android has its own account. File browsing should work with this although i have never tried it before.

  3. Can't download the hamachi file - redirects to HTTPS and says:

    {"error": "Unauthorized"}


  4. Ok, thanks for letting me know. I fixed the link as well as the Qr code so it should be fine now.

  5. Absolutely flawless design for a blog. I am giving my first comment here though
    I have been reading it for past few weeks. The data presented here are relevant and
    precise I think. You should be concentrating more on the outlay. Good job though.

  6. Hey, on this step "apt-get install libcrypto++7" i got an error "couldn't find package"... can someone help?

  7. yeah same thing as Антон Нахимов i really want to get hamachi because i use it a lot on my computer
