Question Is there Hamachi or anything similar for droid?

So I ditched my Iphone for a droid, and am loving it sofar, but the only thing I can't seem to figure out - is a way to access my computers files (music mainly) form my work wifi.

For windows phones and Iphones, there's hamachi, is there anything similar that works on a non rooted droid?


Eager to hear your reply!
Thanks!

Hamachi I believe is now owned by logmein and they just added there app as beta in the market. So if you want it you may want to grab it ASAP as I believe they plan to pull it when they have a certain amount of installs.

Huh, what is it called?

Do different phones have different markets or something? I'm on a desire, and I've searched VPN, hamachi, logmein, log me in, and t's definitely not here. How did you find it?

This is a great example of an app that's so dang cool despite the very real possibility that I'll never have a use for it, haha.

You've never been away from home wishing that you had the movies/music that you have at home? I mean, at a friends house and decided to watch a movie, hear a song or anything like that?

I get that every single day, and my only alternative is to carry around an external hard drive. I envy you.

I downloaded logmein and gave it a shot... I don't see an easy way to access files through that setup. It looks to be nothing more than a control for your desktop. For that purpose, phonemypc is FAR superior. At least with phonemypc, you have the option of running scripts and commands and stuff. Gmote gives you access to your music from anywhere, but it is a royal pain in the ass to set up for access via WAN, and it is insanely temperamental. Half the time I can't get it to work.

Actually my thing is that I'd love FILE access to my PC, but having this sort of "remote desktop" thing is more novelty than useful for most, I'd wager. Give me a simple file browser, sure.

That and with 24GB total of storage on the thing, I really can carry MOST of what I need.

Also - you can play remote media on your phone with gmote? isn't gmote just a remote control?

Sure there is! (For free unprotected apps, at least...)
  1. Have somebody with access:
    1. download&install it
    2. back it up or otherwise grab the APK file
    3. send it to you
  2. Install it locally.
This works just fine, it's how I get access to the official LastFM client. Shiny.

Haven't tried gmote. And I have LogMeIn's Ignition installed. I'd love to be able to access my PC's files, but I'd really prefer not to do it via total remote access, y'know? Let me look at what's on my HD, don't make me do it by controlling my mouse cursor via the phone.

I have DropBox now, but with only 2GB of storage it's mostly for backups of stuff. Ah well.

Websharing or Websharing Lite might suit your needs:
WebSharingLite File/Media Sync v1.5.2 Application for Android | Communication

Sorry I can't post QR Code- work blocks Appbrain. At least I can get into Androlib.

I didn't realize that the Hamachi client for android was just an RDP of sorts.

I was hoping it was like the windows version, which is simply a file browser. Is there not any way i can access all my computer data at home (hundreds of gigs) on my phone somehow?

The logmein product available in beta right now is the "ignition" remote desktop. I haven't found a beta program for the Hamachi VPN file sharing product. Hopefully that will come soon!!!

Well it is a little more complex than that but only to make things easier for you. Homepipe does not set up a server on any of your computer which means no need to open up ports on routers or modify firewall rules. What it does is sets up a secure tunnel to there servers.

Have you ever heard of a pogoplug? Well it pretty much does the same thing as that but instead of purchasing hardware you run it on your pc or mac.

Well, for simple (or complex) file browsing on my home PC via WiFi on my HTC Desire, I use "EStrong" file manager

xda-developers - View Single Post - Best file manager (no, it is not ASTRO)

It works. I could copy, cut, paste from home PC to HTC Desire and vice versa.

It has FTP client as well!

Note: If you have issue with HTC Photo Album does not recognize images that you copied from home PC using file explorer or FTP, use "SDRescan" app to re-scan your sd-card.

Does homepipe let you transfer files from your PC to your phone, or just view / play them?

Default Streaming Media

Just a heads up for those looking for a media streaming program. Check out Orb (MyCast your digital media with Orb 2.0 remote pc access software). Very similar to homepipe, but seems to work much better. Homepipe has always been slow and cluddgy for me regardless of using cell phone, cable or DSL internet. While Orb has worked well from day one.

There is an app in the adroid market for it. The only issue I've noticed is that there can be a gap between songs while the buffer refills, but I think that has to do with the internet service provider I have for my phone. Once the entire song has made it into the buffer, my internet signal seems to drop until it's time to load the next song. However when I browse the internet while listening l get a very minimal pause between songs.

I've only streamed audio and video saved on one of my home PC's, but they also offer webcam, documents, pictures, games and file browsing

Ugh. Orb. Horrible. Horrible compression and sync issues on transcoded video, sluggish app, buggy, overpriced, etc. Never was pleased with it.

If you're just looking for music, Subsonic works, though *requires* a "donation" to use past the trial period. And the minimum "donation" is 10 pounds sterling, as far as I could find on the website. It does do precaching of upcoming songs, so it's very good if you go in and out of cell areas.

There's also JRiver's Gizmo, though that requires their $50 music/media management and streaming program and isn't as good as Subsonic for streaming management on mobile devices.

Video I do Gmote's newish streaming capabilities, but you have to pre-encode your video. I set up a Dynamic domain name for my streaming server with custom NAT translation to get around my ISP, and have no problems accessing my server remotely. Not exactly user friendfly. It doesn't transcode. Still looking for a good replacement for AirVideo from the iPhone world (that program was godlike in transcoding on the fly).

For raw file access, I'd vote for HomePipe. Easy to set up without having to finangle with detailed port setups for WAN access. If you wanna access anything out of My Documents, you can use symlinks/junctions. See MKLINK via command prompt in Vista and higher. There's alternative programs that give junction functionality online for XP.

Wow! Just found the cool software, NeoRouter for Android. It's a Hamachi like VPN solution, much better actually. From my HTC G2 phone, I remote access my computers through ConnectBot and Wyse rdp/vnc client. Still in beta phase, but works pretty well.

has anyone tried Jam11 for streaming iTunes from your PC to your Android device?

I have been thinking about it for a couple of weeks now. It seems like that might be a way to stream any iTunes content pretty smoothly.

Or would Homepipe provide the same functionality as Jam11 without limiting me to iTunes?

If a user only wants to sync their music then there is another alternative from Jam11 which allows a user to stream their own iTunes music to their Android phone. Jam11 just released a beta couple of weeks ago.

Cool bubble upnp

I used hamachi myself and they even fooled me into vuying their crappy ignituon rdp hoping it had vpn support...no such luck, i actually found that streaming is the best way to go...i use a combination of tversity and bubble upnp server on my comp and bubble upnp on my thunderbolt....

Tversity creates a dlna media server that advertises folders i tell it to on my home network...
Bubble upnp servee makes it easy to open the tversity server to the internet...
And bubble upnp app via its server counterpart on my comp allows me to access my movies music and shows anywhere i have internet....bubble also allows tethering meaning it can grant access to say a dlna tv on your friends network from your house a map would be this:
Your homeN --> internet --> your phone --> your friends Tv via thier homeN
It may seem a little complicated but its really notand everything is free except the bubble upnp phone app...it has a 30 min cap free edition to trial it though...
I highly recommend this as your solution...it is the easiest i have found for such things...
Bubble app also allows downloading to your device and is not restricted to music or movies...you can download anything....
Other recommendations:
RDP: teamviewer
File transfering local net: wireless transfer pro

Are you sure it's available?
If you can't find the app on your device. try on the computer. If you can only find it on the computer that means your device can't run the app. You need to update the software.(If you device lets you. try in phone info, there may be an update section)
