Hamachi:Request Timed Out

Overview

In almost all cases, this is caused by a firewall blocking the connectivity. Before you can ping, you'll need to ensure that the target machine has a green or cyan status indicator. If this is not the case, check out the explanation for the color you are seeing in the hamachi:indicators wiki page.

Troubleshooting

The first step in troubleshooting is to ensure you can ping locally. To do this:


Go to Start > Run > cmd > and press enter. Type "ping 127.0.0.1" and press enter. If this fails, troubleshoot your firewall. Search "firewall" in our knowledgebase for instructions on your specific one.


If it was successful: Type "ping 5.x.x.x" where 5.x.x.x is your own Hamachi IP If this fails, again revisit your firewall settings.


If this was successful: Type "ping 5.x.x.x" where 5.x.x.x is the IP of the target computer If this fails, you'll need to troubleshoot the firewall on that machine.


If this is successful in both directions, you have confirmed connectivity over Hamachi via your machine and can set up the application you'd like to use over it. As a double-check, we recommend confirming you can ping from the other machine to yours as well, to confirm two-way communication is successful.
