http://www.iceflatline.com/2009/10/remote-access-to-your-ubuntu-server-using-putty-hamachi-and-ssh/

Only installation of Hamachi i did differently

sudo wget https://secure.logmein.com/labs/logmein ... 1_i386.deb
sudo dpkg -i logmein-hamachi_2.1.0.119-1_i386.deb


or on a 64 bit:
sudo wget https://secure.logmein.com/labs/logmein ... _amd64.deb
sudo dpkg -i logmein-hamachi_2.1.0.119-1_amd64.deb


To ensure that when Ubuntu is rebooted and hamachi starts up insert the following line in the file /etc/rc.local by doing the following.

sudo nano /etc/rc.local

insert this line in

sudo /etc/init.d/logmein-hamachi start
