    Need to switch external program to public network.


    So i downloaded LogMeIn Hamachi and accidentally put it onto private network, so now everytime the program is working i cannot connect to the internet outside of the hamachi connections. Now i can switch my Wi-fi connection to to public/private by clicking networks, right clicing the one i want to change and clicking turn sharing on/off. But hamachi is not in this list, it is in the network and sharing network centre, were i cannot find how to switch it to public.

    Basically you just need to turn off sharing for the network and that will turn it into a Public network. The tutorial in the link explains how. I'm not sure how it works for Hamachi but previous versions were having problems with Windows 8.
