what status do you get?
is hamachi on the taskbar, green with all triangles? or yellow?
their service is up and running again.
If you are using a hardware firewall (covering the whole network), you will need to permit the following:
Hamachi connects to a central server on ports 12975 and 32976 using TCP. The first port is used for a initial contact, and the second is used for an actual session. Hamachi also uses dynamic local and remote UDP ports for communicating with other Hamachi peers.
If Hamachi fails to connect to the server on 12975, it will try to connect via SSL (server only) on TCP 443 (standard secure port, SSL).
If peer connectivity is failing (yellow/blue status), you can set a static local UDP port. To set a static local UDP port, open Hamachi Preferences > Detailed Configuration section and set the UDP port value to a port of your choice; we recommend something over 1024.
Setting a UDP port is normally used in conjunction with configuring port forwarding on your NAT/router device when resolving "yellow status" issues. You can find more info on configuring a port forward to your router/firewall at PortForward.com.
A small circle in front of each peer on your Hamachi list is a status indicator. The color of this indicator reflects the status of the connection between you and a peer.
A gray indicator means that the peer is offline and there is no connectivity with it.
A blinking green indicator means that the peer is online and Hamachi is working to establish a connection. It typically takes under a second to establish the tunnel, but sometimes it may take up to few minutes.
A solid green indicator means that you have direct connection with a peer.
A cyan indicator means that Hamachi was not able to establish direct connection and that you are connected to a peer via a high-speed relay.
A cyan down-pointing arrow is the same as the previous type, except that it indicates the use of low-speed relay.
A yellow indicator means that Hamachi failed to establish both direct or relayed connection with a peer.
Additionally, red status means that you are blocking all network traffic to/from this peer. This block can be toggled via a right-click menu.
