Remote access specialist LogMeIn has extended its Hamachi virtual private network (VPN) platform with the addition of a web portal.
The VPN.net site allows customers to find and access VPN deployments through a browser, and works in combination with locally installed Hamachi client software.
The tool is designed for remote access and collaboration, and allows customers to create secure VPN connections between two systems so that PCs can securely transfer files via IP.
Once an administrator has set up a VPN with an ID and password, additional machines running Hamachi software can use the VPN.net site to find and connect with the host system. LogMeIn believes that the site will simplify the process of accessing Hamchi VPNs.
"Hamachi is an incredibly simple VPN solution, and that's why it has been embraced by small businesses and individuals alike," said LogMeIn vice president of access and management Andrew Burton.
"VPN.net builds on that simplicity, making it possible for anyone to benefit from the security and mobility benefits that VPNs provide."
The VPN.net update is also the first version of Hamachi to incorporate support for IPv6, and is available for Windows and OS X systems. A Linux client is currently being tested.
The service is free for non-commercial use, and costs $199 a year for businesses with a limit of 256 devices per network.
