Lots of you will probably have already heard of Tunngle, the new VPN client that is slated to give Hamachi a run for its money, especially where gaming is concerned. Personally, I came across Tunngle a few weeks ago while doing research for some posts on Hamachi, but much to my dismay, I found that it was only available in German!
Obviously that wasn’t much use to those of us who don’t speak the language, but the developers promised us that things would change. We waited patiently and, sure enough, the international version came out last Friday, 11th December. How’s that for an early Christmas present?!
People are getting excited about Tunngle because it is rumored to be far more efficient for hosted games than its most popular rival, Hamachi. Whereas nobody is doubting the utility of Hamachi for lots of things, some users have found it to be sluggish when playing games, dropping connections and having problems getting them started. If you’re one of those users, you’ll be really glad for the alternative. Well, you can download Tunngle now at Softonic, and take a peek at my first impressions. You’ll probably want to give it your own test run though, and if you do, be sure to let us know how you get on!
