Took me a while to get used to it. I hadn't liked most other password managers. It's indispensable now.

Oh how I wish this were also available for Windows. Then, I could use it at work.

This in full screen + VirtueDesktops = sweetness.

This is for the demo of the PRO version.

The functionality of this software looks very promising. The menubar feature is definitely what I'm wanting. I've been using SSH Tunnel Manager and it has done the trick quite well, but it has lacked a few things AlmostVPN seems to promise.

My only beef: Setting up the services is a real PITA.

Yes, I've imported my settings from SSHTM. Each of the individual "tunnel" from SSHTM would be equivalent to a Profile in AlmostVPN. Each port redirection in SSHTM is a Service. Each Profile uses one SSH Server, multiple Hosts, and multiple Services. I have two Profiles in which I'm most interested. I have one Profile setup for when I am at home and one Profile for when I am anywhere else. Each Profile is setup identically; 10 Services, a handfull of Hosts, and one SSH Server. The only difference between the two profiles is the SSH server.

When I've imported the settings from SSHTM, AlmostVPN creates both SSH servers, but only one Profile; I need two. In that one Profile, only 10 Services are listed; I would expect to see 20. Of the 10 Services which are there, I am unable to distinguish which SSH server each of the Services is using - I could be missing the elephant in the middle of the room. I can't very well use my home setup outside my own network.

So, I've embarked on setting them up individually. It isn't difficult to do, but it IS time consuming, and unfortunately, since this is still only an RC release, it likes to crash after I've created about four or five of those Services. When I reopen the System Preferences, I see I've lost at least half of them each time. The only way to avoid losing any changes I've made, is to close System Preferences after creating each service.

All in all, I've spent close to an hour trying to set it up and I lost all my settings. So, now that I have gotten the hang of it, it'll probably only take me another 15 minutes to get it back the way I want it. I'll cross my fingers that it sticks. I'd rather it import from SSHTM like I think it should. That would've been a lot easier.

Thank you. Thank you. I'm so glad to see an update of MainMenu released!!! MainMenu is my favorite of the maintenance utilities.
