I was this close to paying Amnet (one of Costa Rica’s useless ISP) for a public IP to be able to use my nice server which is set up (or in the process of) with a lot of tools that I use for my next enterprise, setting up my own company.

Well, let’s go back to the story, I had to have access from anywhere to my files while I am developing (and also my Music – 70 GB don’t fit in an iphone).
So, what is the solution? Use Hamachi. Hamachi is a vpn emulator that’s free for non commercial use and as little as $4 for commercial use.

Try it, it works wonderfully. I am listening to my itunes library from across town and logged into my Microsoft Windows 2008 server via terminal server.
