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.

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.

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.

Go here:

http://www.equinux.com/us/products/support.html?pid=2

and click on the link there that asks the question "Are your products compatible with Mac OS 10.5 (Leopard)?"

You'll find this info:

"VPN Tracker 4 is not compatible with Mac OS 10.5 (Leopard), and due to fundamental changes in the operating system, we will not be able to patch this version. However, we have just entered the beta phase for VPN Tracker 5, and intend to invite a couple of current users of VPN Tracker 4 to test the new version. If you're interested in using VPN Tracker 5 on Leopard (or on any other supported system), please apply at this website."

Yeah, thanks for responding! Yes, I checked the site and saw that now. :-D I just purchased the product on october 1 so I'm looking forward to the upgrade. I also applied for the beta program but I could also wait for version 5. Hopefully it will be soon.

VPN tracker reset all references to our company domains to IPs that are relevant only when you are connected. It didn't release them on disconnect. Uninstalling didn't work nor did the company's uninstall application. A diligent search for preferences, etc. doesn't reveal where the problem lies. Requests for tech support from the company have not been answered and the company rarely is available to answer phone calls. They also don't return phone messages. Use this product with caution. If it works for you that's great, but if it doesn't you may have some real difficulty.
