Hamachi’s Gateway VPN and Guest OS on a Windows 2012 / Hyper-V Installation

While testing the installation of Hamachi on a Hyper-V Guest, the install broke the network configuration.  This is due to the way Hyper-V and Hamachi operate.

In Hyper-v you have to have it add a legacy network adapter and then open command line in Administrator mode and enter the following commands:

  • netsh bridge show adapter
  • netsh bridge set adapter 1 forcecompatmode=enable

Then begin the install for Hamachi in Gateway network mode.

If you require any additional support on setting Hamachi up on a Hyper-V Guest, please feel free to contact us on 014852222.
