Introduction: Logmein Hamachi for Linux/Beaglebone/Raspberry Pi

If you don"t pay for a static IP address, or find yourself behind firewalls that you can"t control, this method will allow you to access SSH on your Raspberry Pi by installing client-side software to connect to a logmein hamachi network.

Step 1: Create a Logmein Account and Create a Network

First, create a account if you haven't already, and from there, create a network.

If you want to add a smartphone or a mobile device to your network you have to use this link: (here you can also use the actual beta-versions)

Next step is creating the network.

That's it. Now connect to your beaglebone/raspberry.

Step 2: Download and Install the Hamachi Client

Download the beta logmein hamachi .deb file. This is done via the command line easily enough with:

$ sudo wget

If there is a newer version you can see it on that page:

Next step is the installation:

Install the lsb-core
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get upgrade
$ sudo apt-get install lsb-core

Install logmein-hamachi by running:

$ sudo dpkg -i logmein-hamachi_2.1.0.119-1_armhf.deb

Configure the logmein-client

$ sudo hamachi login
$ sudo hamachi attach <INSERT YOUR LOGMEIN.COM EMAIL HERE>
$ sudo hamachi set-nick "pick something creative….perhaps beaglebone or raspy"

now take a break and go to your logmein webaccount.

Now you can add here the beaglebone/raspy to your network.

That's it.

If you want to autologin at the start edit the etc/rc.local file and insert "hamachi login"
