Installing LogMeIn Hamachi for Linux (Beta) command line version on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS

I have used Hamachi for years, and while it does not seem to be heavily marketed, if you are an IT Pro, I do not know how you live with out this software.

I recently configured a server with Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, and wanted to have remote access to my server from my mobile phone / other computers while on the phone.

When I tried to install LogMeIn Hamachi for Linux (Beta) on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS. The installation failed. As lsb-core was not available. The documentation on Hamachi clearly states that lsb 3.0 or greater is required.

LogMeIn Hamachi for Linux (Beta)

Please make sure you have the LSB 3.0 (or above) package installed prior to attempt installing the product. If you had an older version of Hamachi for Linux, please make sure you uninstall it prior to attempt installing the latest software and read the README file located in the download package. Make sure that you have an ARMv4T or better processor and tun/tap driver installed before running Hamachi for Linux with ARM support.

Do the following to install the LogMeIn Hamachi Client.

# The following are a list of commands you are run to install Hamachi in one step
# go to downloads folder
cd ~/Downloads
# download hamachi client (64 bit)
# download hamachi client (32 bit)
# install lsb from Ubuntu 14.04
#  Out of desperation I've downloaded and installed the lsb-core package for Ubuntu 14.04,
sudo add-apt-repository "deb trusty main" && sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install lsb-core -y
# install hamachi client
dpkg -i ./logmein-hamachi_2.1.0.139-1_amd64.deb
# join network
hamachi do-join 000-000-000

Update the last line of code with your appropriate network id before running this.

Then go to your LogMeIn Central and approve the network join request.

**It Worked** Connected to Linux Server from My iPhone 6 Plus 


Happy Computing.

The two apps I tested this with are:

Server Auditor

Reflection for UNIX – SSH Client
