    So I was searching for a way to play Fifa 08/09 online, and I came on to Hamachi.
    I've followed several tutorials but it just won't work....
    I can ping other members in Hamachi, but whenever I try to connect to them in the game, it say's connection fail.

    I've tried setting off my firewall, no use.

    Had some difficulties about hamachi too yesterday.
    For the people who still don't know how to play, for example CS:S, or any other Steam game, connect to the Hamachi ip (5.x.x.x):xxxxx
    For example: 5.10.54.244:27015
    That should work [​IMG] (oh, admin should type "sv_lan 0" in the console)

    I remember Hamachi was used by people who couldn't port forward, and yet wanted to host RuneScape private servers.
    Losers =D

    I haven't really messed with it that much.

    I use it a lot for playing Battlefield2 with my friend.

    All you have to do is copy host server ip from hamachi and use that ip to join in game
