Hi all, I have a Minecraft server which I used to run with logmein hamachi but now the free limit of connections to your network has been reduced from 8 to 5 and that is far not enough for me. Are there any free alternatives which are simple and easy to use like hamachi?
Please help!

Regards

What is the server running on? You could use something like poptop for Linux or the built-in windows VPN software?

OpenVPN works well too :)

Can tell me how to set up a network on OpenVPN because it's rather complicated
Thanks!

Not trying to be harsh, but ...
Logmein Hamachi etc do all the work for you, for a fee, if want to use it, pay the money.
If you don't want to, there are plenty of free/open ways to do it.
They will require you to learn a little to set them up and there is many howto's and info at the end of your search engine.

I use logmein hamachi. Me and my friends use it for playing games that no longer have online support over lan or for private servers. We ended up buying it in the end,alternatives were too annoying to setup. Games behaved differently with different VPN's. A 32 Slot server is only like $20 a year iirc, less than a dollar a day.

why I want something free is because my parents dont want to buy me it because they say I dont need it and there are plenty free alternatives...

My friend who used to play on my server got banned from hamachi by his dad because he thought it was a gateway to hackers so I need to find an alternative so he can play on it and not evolve or tunngle because they are harder to use

Sounds like you need to educate yourself on how VPN's work then.

There is everything in here that you need to get yourself started: http://openvpn.net/index.php/open-source/documentation/howto.html

Or you can try the built-in Windows VPN: https://www.google.co.nz/webhp?sourceid=chrome-instant&ix=ieb&ie=UTF-8&ion=1#sclient=psy-ab&hl=en&site=webhp&source=hp&q=Windows%20pptp%20vpn&oq=&aq=&aqi=&aql=&gs_nf=&gs_l=&pbx=1&fp=eb617bfc4df8e837&ix=ieb&ion=1&bav=on.2,or.r_gc.r_pw.r_cp.,cf.osb&biw=1920&bih=923
