Hamachi & Vista

This is for a friend:

When he plays a game (He has tried Warcraft 3 and Company of Heros) over Hamachi:

Vista -> XP is fine
and I'm pretty sure XP -> vista is fine

But Vista -> Vista is not.

What could be the problem?


P.S. I don't have any games to test, so I'll forward the answers to him.

Someone has had exactly the same issue - and found the problem & posted a bug report here:

The long & short of it is that hamachi play won't work vista-to-vista, it will only work xp-to-xp or possibly xp-to-vista if the vista machine hosts. (Make sure in XP that the hamachi adaptor has the highest priority in advanced, advanced settings menu option of 'manage network connections').

Hope the above helps. Let me know how you go.
