VPN Tracker is the premier VPN client for OS X, allowing safe data transfer between your Mac and your remote networks. VPN Tracker brings the workflow of the mobile user to the foreground. The starting point is the "Secure Desktop". Here users' documents, Internet addresses, applications, and scripts can all be easily organized giving VPN users the direct access they need most. Every item in the Secure Desktop can be completely configured and linked to any one of the users VPN connections. Administrators and consultants can easily create multiple Secure Desktops which can also be pre-configured and exported to specific more...

Man I wish I read this site first. The software looks like it will be fine during evaluation but then you fork over $140, activate, and the first thing it does it throw a kernel panic on connect!

At first I couldn't believe that this was something others might experience, but apparently it's been a bug from version to version. Unacceptable. Truly disappointed in what appeared to be a reputable company.

Upgrade price is more than 73% of the full price. Equinux is trying to make fear advertising that version 6 is not supported on Mavericks.
So far, I had no problem with version 6 on Mavericks, except annoying message at startup to annonce "VPN Tracker is not supported on this version of OS X... Use at Own Risk"
This is looks like a very bad marketing practice to force the users to upgrade.

Yes, I told them ... but version 7 works well for sure.

Have used this program since 2002/2003 and it has always worked very well with many connections. Occasionally one had to figure out the right settings on ones own as the wizards was not too helpful, but even those have become better over time. We have recommended the program to many over the years and none has regretted paying the rather high price. Upgrading paths and handling of licenses could have been a little easier/clearer, but it works (mostly).

Ok, now VPN Tracker gets *2* stars - 1 more than before. Why? Because they managed to get a Mac OSX Lion version out & running. Yes running without kernel panics!

Still, way to expensive for what it does. Now they even sell some important features at a $100 "Pro" version. WTF? Upgrade prices? Forget it!

I bought the second upgrade. So basically I paid three times for a software that caused a lot of kernel panics on my computer. Now I am using IPsecuritas - a free product that works painlessly for months.

Equinux, I never see any free updates to your products. Bugfixing seems to be always part of a new paid update.

Cannot recommend the company, neither the product.

With VPN Tracker 5 i had *never* problems. But now, with VPN Tracker 6, 1-3 times a week: kernelpanic

I have contacted the support, will see how they will support me.


Trsut me on this one: Hell of a buggy product for way too much money. Only corporates would buy this. And that seems to be their target market.

We are running IPsecuritas now for 12 months with no issues at all.

I bought VPN Tracker Pro 5, I think it was $200. Well worth it. But they are charging $160 for this upgrade. Why so much? Given that they already announced that VPN Tracker 5 is compatible with Snow Leopard, why would I need this upgrade?

Expensive but well-written and excellent support. Highly recommended if you play/work with a variety of VPN hardware.

I bought it and it never did the job. I sent ticket, reports, all that the developper asked me to send, I tried different configurations, even different routers. Nothing works. Finally, I tried IPSecuritas which is absolutely FREE, and guess what, it WORKS for the first try. So I gave a last chance to VPN 5 and entered again the exact same settings, I have in IPSecuritas and nothing work again. I decided to stay with IPSecuritas. I asked for a refund and they said NO because I bought the soft for more than one month. I spent more than one month to toubleshoot it. I'm really disappointed. I learned something, ALWAYS TRY BEFORE YOU BUY

I really like the new interface of version 5 and it's speed for starting the connection. Way nicer than the cisco client. I just wish there was a menu item where you could start the connection from, so you didn't even have to start the app.
My company bought a bunch of licenses and everyone loves it.
