Left4Dead 2 Tunngle Guide – How To

By   /   6 years ago

Tunngle is a virtual network adapter and a hamachi alternative.  In case you don’t know what is Hamachi, its a tool that helps you play your favorite game on virtual LAN with your friends. Tunngle as a hamachi alternative and does the same but, has few features which make it better then hamachi. *Debatable*

We have generally preferred playing games online likeLeft4Dead for instance on hamachi but as Tunngle is quickly gaining popularity, I thought it would be better to write about it first. So lets get down to how you can setup Left4dead 2 and play it with your friends using Tunngle.
