I live with my dad and step mom, but the network is on lockdown here for fear of viruses. I've been using ibVPN to bypass the port blocks but the high latency I get is unbearable. My birth mom has said that she would let me setup hamachi on a computer there (~2 hours away) so that I could (tunnel?) to her house and use her connection to bypass the blocked ports. Setting up the (VPN? tunnel?) seems easy, but I don't know whether I would get better latency going through hamachi setup at her house, or continue using my payed VPN.

Hamachi is a Virtual Private Network (VPN) service. Computers connect to it and it's basically like they're on their own LAN.
