It works so so. To much pop-ups disturbing. Get the real open source app from openVPN directly here: https://openvpn.net/client-connect-vpn-for-mac-os/

It became much better since I tried it in 2019. I didn't test it in all depths but it works quite good at the first glance.

Tunnelblich has a lot of DNS leak issues. Try Shimo for Mac instead.

Crappy software that can open a DNS leak to your VPN connection. It can not even handle the DNS Settings on macOS. I'm not really excited about Shimo. But it works much better than Tunnelblick.

Very ver nice app. Love it. Thank you very much. Works very well and never crashes. Also works with older VPN configs I got. Using it for quite a while now I'm not having any problems at all. I really like the screen stickies that appear when you hover over the icon and show the connection stats and allow to connect/disconnect. Easy to configure.

The latest version includes some improvements but it's not compatible with the old profiles that are used by some VPN providers.

works very well, as well as Visc. The interface isn't as sexy as Visc. Do you care?

Tunnelblick works great on my Mac to connect to my VPN server at my office. Is there any way to use Tunnelblick(or similar app) with the latest iPad?

I tried Tunnelblick for a couple of weeks but I kept having issues with my VPN provider. I switched to Viscosity and everything has been peaches ever since.

Use TB for years now. Incompatibilities in some versions often were solved very fast. Many thanks to the developers.

I see in the description "easy-rsa". I feel my privacy is well protected knowing that an company who has sold its soul for $10 million by putting in back doors in their encryption algorithms, is part of this software.

Months ago, I started with Tunnelblick. But with Mac OS X 10.8.x, I had to move to the beta 3.x versions. And it was rough, I couldn't connect, the new version didn't convert the old version's data, etc. When it was good, it was really good. But since Tunnelblick is still in beta - for several months now, I had to move on. So I paid for and now use Viscosity - which works really well and has regular updates which are not beta. I doubt I would need to move back to Tunnelblick.

Recently signed up for VPN service, they offered a link to Viscosity (shareware). I discovered Tunnelblick (opensource), decided to give it a try first. Got it up and running almost instantly, zero tech issues or troubleshooting needed! It does drop the connection once every few hours (could be because I'm connecting from China, not nec. Tunnelblick's fault), but always *automatically* reconnects itself without issue. 4/5 stars, thanks!
