Synopsis

The remote host is running a client VPN application that allows remote users to connect to the computer and use it as a tunnel into the internal network.

Description

The remote host is running a client VPN application that allows remote users to connect to the computer and use it as a tunnel into the internal network. Hamachi works by connecting to an internet server (a 'frontend' server) from inside a firewalled network. The connection is then held open and can be accessed by users outside the network. Once connected to Hamachi, remote users would have the ability to access internal services as if they were directly attached to the network.

Solution

Ensure that such usage is in alignment with corporate policies regarding remote access.
