Works great on Mac OSX Snow Leopard. I use it to connect to three different networks via VPN. Highly appreciated! Only drawback: Seems the config files are outside my (filevaulted) user dir.

Works well for me. I only wish it came with updated release notes (the included notes stop at version 3.5) and that there was notification of updates. I'd cheerfully pay for it. The only other IPsec client I know of is VPN Tracker, which is overpriced but does work.

4.0rc does include updated release notes. Yaay! I had one installation bobble on two machines (both MacBook Pros running 10.8.4, both upgrading IPSecuritas from 4.0b2 to 4.0rc. The new version would not run, claiming it could not connect to the daemon. In both cases the following fix worked (after simply rebooting did not): * Reboot into safe mode (hold down the shift key after the startup chime) * Drag a new copy of IPSecuritas (4.0rc) into your Applications Folder * Run the application; it should ask for your password and should start up just fine. I did not try to connect. * Go to preferences and select "Show Status in Menubar" if you want that. The menu icon should show up. * Reboot normally At this point it should all be fine.

For those of you trying to get this working with Mountain Lion, try turning off the Mac's firewall. That fixed the connection problems I was having, and it seems to have worked for others. Didn't get a response from Lobotomo's support, as to whether this was a known issue, or whether a fix was in the works. I'm not holding my breath, since this version has been a "release candidate" since November.

Virgin Media in the UK are trialling CView http://www.newscientist.com/blogs/shortsharpscience/2009/12/spying-begins-on-uk-web-users.html I do not copy music, etc., but I do object to being spied on; it is the thin end of the wedge. Will this software encrypt any data such that it would be invisible to spyware such as CView?

You are looking for an anonymizer proxy service, which will probably use some form of VPN. Google - http://www.google.com/search?client=safari&rls=en&q=vpn+anonymizer&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8

Since I am here and seeing all the positive reviews, I can only add that I have tried it out a couple of times since it was released and have never managed to configure it to work with anything and we work with these things daily ... but if you are lucky it might work with your appliances. VPN Tracker has always worked even if their standard profiles often does not work. /Jerry

Which VPN boxes are you trying to connect to Jerry? The support forum is a good place to go and look or even ask for help. Both VPN Tracker and IPSecuritas are GUI for the inbuilt ipsec and racoon. If you copy the parameter settings from your VPN box config and apply them faithfully in your VPN client, you should not have any problems. That works for me. The new VPN Tracker has some nice extra features over and above establishing a VPN connection, like the "Secure Desktop" feature.

This connects so much faster than VPN Tracker, is very unobtrusive (lives in the menu bar, no app needed to make connections), and it's free. It also can export profiles and supports multiple connections, which requires the Pro version of VPN Tracker. The drawbacks are the app itself crashes when editing profiles and connections, the connections and profile windows are not resizable, and new connections are added to the current profile by default (which is annoying). The other downside is that exporting profiles no longer works on my computer (it did for a while, but now gives an error that I must choose a password, even though I did.) This app shows potential. I use it over VPN Tracker, and if the stability issues were worked out it would be great.

Hello, thank you very much for your review. The export problem has been identified and fixed (see http://www.lobotomo.com/cgi-bin/yabb/YaBB.pl?num=1195575910 , release to come). I'd very interested to learn more about the crashes you describe, and to fix them, of course. Could you please get in touch with me at lobotomo@lobotomo.com? Thank you very much, Christoph Lobotomo Software

The 3.0 beta is really great! My company paid $199 for a VPN Tracker Pro license and I'm ditching it for this. My favorite feature is the menubar item for controlling the VPN connection. You can quit the IPSecuritas application (freeing up space on your Dock) and still control the VPN. This application is for connecting to IPSec VPNs. If your company uses PPTP or L2TP-over-IPSec this isn't for you. Pros: * Loads and connects faster than VPN Tracker Pro * Native Intel application (VPN Tracker emphasizes that they support the Intel platform, but it is still a PowerPC application) * Menubar item to control VPN status * Dashboard widget to control VPN status * Greatly improved configuration interface since the last version * Can see multiple remote subnets (new since the last version) Cons: * There wasn't a pre-defined profile for my company's VPN. I had to play with the options to find the combination that works. * There's no help available in the beta.
