Dearest Arma 3 community,
I don’t know if this is the right place for it, I hope so and I'm sorry if not.
A friend of mine and I had some major issues running Arma 3 with Hamachi to play some missions.
If we try to run Arma 3 over Hamachi, which worked just fine in the past, we can't join each other. He can see my server but if he's trying to connect to it, it just keeps connecting until he gets a time out or he disconnects immediately after he joined. Sometimes he’s able to connect but doesn’t have a menu. So, I manually assign him and start the game, my game starts completely normal but his game takes ages to load and if it's loaded he's suddenly in the water of Tanoa, no matter which map we are actually playing.
This error occurs since a few weeks, the last time it actually worked was two weeks ago since then we couldn't get it running again.
What we already did:
• Checking for corrupted files in Arma 3
• Reinstalled Arma 3
• Reinstalled Hamachi
• Both several times.
• Deactivated our firewalls
• Deactivated our Antivirus programs
We also did this because we thought it might be Hamachi:
Resolving Hamachi "Request Timed Out" for Windows Firewall
Also, we deleted every workshop mod we had except for the map we wanted to pay, which was a BCTI mission in Altis. Before the issue occurred, the mission worked fine. We also tried playing the standard apex protocol missions. However, the same Issue occurred.
We also checked if it's a problem with the IPv4 but there's no problem.
I just wanted to note: Everything works just fine when we were playing Arma 2.

We couldn't find anyone with the same problem, so we thought we ask right here at the source.
If someone recommend to change the ports of my router - I won’t do that. Why? Because I think it should be possibly to play games in coop without changing gaming ports which works just fine for every other game.
So, I hope you guys have a fix for this problem.
Thanks for everyone helping us out on this problem
