    Do any of you use Hamachi or Leaf for VPN gaming? Which one do you prefer? If you vote "Other" please list what your "Other" program is.

    I'm just curious =P

    I've used Hamachi a lot in the last weeks to play some good ol' StarCraft.

    What about Leaf? Never used it. It's better than Hamachi?

    I didn't say Leaf was better than Hamachi. I currently use Hamachi. However, I know a few people that use Leaf instead, so I was hoping to get other people's opinions about the subject.

    Neither. I prefer using Openvpn. It's more complicated with setting it up, but works better. I've noticed some games have hamachi blacklisted also.

    Never used Leaf, have used hamachi but I prefer to just use a cracked server and best case I some games do no need to use such things like that

    I've been using Leaf for a while now it seems to work great. Only problem is there is little out there to support it, so using it can be a little difficult at first. I actually had to use the Hamachi wiki page to figure out some of the configs. The main reason I went to Leaf from Hamachi was hamachi was un-reliable. Some days I could connect right away and other days I couldn't get on at all. Leaf I have never had that issue. There are several other VPN clients out there but I'm running a Vista x64 machine and this is one of the only other VPN clients that would work other than Hamachi.
