Hamachi on SuSE 10.0 chat?


I wanted to know, how do you chat with this? I have both Hamachi and gHamachi installed and they work nicely but I can't do anything else except connect to a network, nothing else.

Where are the chat commands like in Windows?

All Hamachi does is connect to a network. Once you're on the VPN, whatever you have on the VPN is available. Meaning, if you have an IM server running, run whatever client you normally run.

Hamachi isn't a chat client; here's a good description of what it does.

It's just annoying that the chat is available for Windows only.
Having the gui that is available is better than none at all.

What I wanted it for was to connect with a friend and do Open Canvas networking. Unfortunately, Open Canvas' chat window is just gibberish in Wine on Linux.

P.S.
I have a question about tuncfg: Should I stop the service when I'm done with Hamachi? Can I go to the TOP list and select tuncfg and then "kill"? or would that ruin something?
