Sorry if this is the wrong board first of all. I'm a console gamer mainly, so I don't come around this side much.

Now, onto the topic. I have a friend that I like to play computer games with. But with his router we can't play our favorite games together unless I'm over at his house and one of us is on his desktop and one of us is on his laptop. Reason being is his router has the ports we need opened sealed and out of respect for his grandparents, he isn't going to go tampering with their router settings.

So this brings me to my question. For simplicity purposes, we decided we wanted to just do a virtual LAN between our computers. Then we could even do games that had their servers shut down. So, does anyone here have experience enough with virtual LANs to recommend a decent one? We tried Wippien but didn't like it.

Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks!

I've always used hamachi and never had any problems with it, it isn't the most intuitive program ever, but it is (was)? free. Not sure if it costs anything now or if it's still being supported, it's been a while.

Alright, thank you! I'll do some research on it. Does anyone else have any recommendations? I like to have several to choose from.

My friends and I use Hamachi too. It's free for up to 5 users now; if you want to have more than 5 people on the network you'll have to pay for it.

Well, it's just gonna be the two of us on it, so that's not a problem. Thanks for the input!

I'd also say hamachi is pretty simple. It takes no effort to install and setting up a network doesn't take much more.
