Since OCTGN's main server has been out of service for the past week I've started a virtual private network for playing mage wars on OCTGN using Hamachi. Each network has a limit of five computers per network. So far I have created only one network, but if there's enough interest I can probably create more.

If you want to join, you can download Hamachi here: https://www.vpn.net/
After that just create a hamachi account, log into the app, go to the network tab and click on "join network". Then enter the login info for the network you want to join. Or you can create your own network.

Accept the incoming new network connection. Both players must be connected to the network using the Hamachi app in order to play against each other on the network.
After that open OCTGN and select the "Play and Spectate" tab.

If you are hosting a game press start and open a game. Then make sure to give your opponent the port number and your Hamachi IP address (not your actual IP address!) otherwise they will not be able to join. The port number is in the upper left corner of the game lobby in white text on black background.

If you are joining a game just press "join unlisted" and use the port number and the Hamachi IP address that the host player gave you to join the game.

It's really that easy. If you still want to play Mage Wars on OCTGN and don't want to possibly have to wait to start playing again, just follow the instructions and start playing! See you in the Arena!

________
Note: Hamachi VPNs have a chat function. So if you want to send a message to someone else connected to the network, just right click on them and select chat. Also the Ping function does not actually send an alert to another computer, I'm not sure what it does but I think it just tests their connection to the network.

IMPORTANT: AS SOON AS YOU ARE DONE PLAYING, DISCONNECT FROM THE SERVER. THERE IS A LIMIT OF 4 CLIENTS PER SERVER, AND I CANNOT BOOT PLAYERS FOR SOME REASON. GIVE OTHER PLAYERS THE CHANCE TO USE THE SERVERS...

How exactly do you connect OCTGN through this?

Am I missing the purpose of a private network for Octgn?
