Hamachi rocks!

I was aware of Hamachi as a personal VPN solution last year and knew that security guru Steve Gibson rates it (check out his podcast on the subject here) - now I've been trying to get my Windows server at home to do the VPN-server thang but it seems so tempremental - and this is borne out by trawling the news-groups. Any change to the network config makes the routing service fail and this week I had the audacity to upgrade one of the network cards for gigabit and I've not been able to get the MS VPN to come back up - so (like every other network protocol that machine serves) I've discovered that a third-party solution is invariably more stable/faster than the one that Microsoft provides.
