Merges networks over secure VPN connection for Rendezvous services.

Overview

Note: RendezvousVPN is no longer under development, and it is no longer available for sale.

RendezvousVPN merges networks over a secure VPN connection for Rendezvous services. Any TCP/IP service broadcasted on one side of the network is instantly accessable on the other side. Games, file sharing, and even printing are all forwardable. All it takes is one machine on each side and all of the services from one network are tunneled over to the other network.
  • Rendezvous service auto discovery and network syncing
  • Secure VPN connection with strong encryption
  • Protocol compression for better bandwidth usage

What's new in RendezvousVPN

Version 1.1:
  • Improved connection stability for larger data transmissions
  • Fixed minor GUI issues
  • Added command-line server option for licensed users.This option can be enabled by running the application from the terminal or a shell script (it needs no GUI so it can be run as a daemon service). Make sure and leave the application in its wrapper. Execute as ./RendezvousVPN.app/Contents/MacOS/RendezvousVPN noGUI This will run RendezvousVPN as a server only and will run as if it had the GUI running.
  • Changed data transmission progress bars to more closely reflect the data transmitted (tx/rx)
  • Fixed random crash on disconnect
  • Added external log file in the same directory as the application named RendezvousVPN.log

Really terrible software. It looks nice I guess, but don't let that fool you. Anyone with a minimal amount of UNIX experience can do this for free, and in the background without this program running - that IS the entire point of the VPN concept. At any rate, it's software based on open-source technology and they're charging for it. Shame. Didn't even let me hit "Trial" at the opening page, had to wait another 20 seconds when I hit register and wait for that counter to tick down too. Just plain frustrating.

There are many places where the effective sharing of Rendezvous services can break down so I'm not blaming Philippe, but this app crashes on disconnect and my services of interest don't seem to work once the connection is established. I haven't given up, though.

Some DNS hints: freshmeat.net/projects/dnsmasq/ and www.osdir.com/Article1215.phtml; EasyDNS by www.novajo.ca; and DNSConfigure by www.dekorte.com. For tunneling tools also see vtun.sf.net and IP Manager (www.4sight.com)! And there also is vpn-udp by www.beasts.org/software.html.

I think zigzag hit it on the head. mDNS packets are very dificult to get to work on a vpn. BTW anyone who is using 1.1, copy it to your HD! You should be able to run it from the disk image but the current version makes a log file. Of course this might cause an error if the disk that you are launching it from is write protected.... This issue will be addressed shortly. In the mean time please run it from somewhere on a writeable drive. To those who want to run a regular vpn, please use ssh tunneling or some other vpn type solution. RendezvousVPN is only for Rendezvous services, hence the name of the application. I cannot fathom considering myself a superior programmer to a team of senior level programmers writing an PPtP or L2TP server/client nor any other single programmer should. RendezvousVPN fits the niche that Rendezvous does not forward over a standard vpn.

For a professional-strength enterprise-class secure VPN solution see netfence by www.phion.at (this software is reported to support OS X as a client; the netfence server only runs on Linux/x86!). By the way, a free IPSec client for OS X is IPSecuritas!

Looks like it could be useful it I could actually TRY it.. (crashes after waiting 10 secs or so @ the shareware splash screen). Exception: EXC_BAD_ACCESS (0x0001) Codes: KERN_PROTECTION_FAILURE (0x0002) at 0x00000038 Did someone forget to check array bounds?

This is not easily done in unix! I've spent quite a while scripting a simple custom VPN that would provide really high performance, and that was quite a bit of work. Rendezvous never worked over it though. Rendezvous requires ethernet broadcasting I believe, so its not as easy as it sounds. Kudos on a useful app!
