I've been using LogMeIn Hamachi for a while for personal use and recently I started to wonder how to (and if at all) implement it as full blown VPN solution for my multiple clients.
Those are usually small companies ranging from 5 to 60 people having Active Directory / Exchange / SharePoint and alike. Some of them have static IP's but crappy router or multiple locations where only main location has AD server and rest is kind cut off from the main location. This brings a lot of problems with Active Directory, passwords etc which I think
LogMein Hamachi could solve as it would be connected to company at all times, with it's ability to create special types of network that limit users to be able to access only particular servers (depending on group). No need for user to do anything out of ordinary, do anything special. Just plug & play. Sounds Great!
What do you think about it? Is it secure, reliable solution ? What are possible drawbacks? Would you do it for small companies like the ones I support? As additional note I wanted to run multiple companies on same account to split the costs (200$/year isn't the cheapest for small 5-10 people company) but considering I can create special/separate networks I don't consider this to be security risk for any of those companies (or should I worry?).
I've been trying to set it up with my domain controller and my machine but I'm hitting some problems as I set DNS on my Hamachi IP and my Domain Controller (currently having 2 IP Addresses) seems to respond properly just it's returning internal IP address names instead of
Hamachi IP addresses which causes some problems to access resources. Any advice on that would be additonally appreciated.
As a side note I've been using LogMeIn Free for years and it's been a blessing.
