SonicWall Mobile Connect App Reviews

45 add


This application connects to the SonicWALL SRA appliance at my workplace WAY faster than the SonicWALL NetExtender client does and offers some nice integration with the Mac with the setup of a dedicated VPN interface so you can connect to the VPN using the shortcut in the menu bar. I really like it!

Works perfectly

The negative reviews probably have more to do with the VPN tunnel and/or NAT policies not being properly configured on the SonicWall device itself and has nothing to do with how well this app actually works. I’ve had no trouble at all and it works exactly how it’s supposed to work. Connects every time to the proper VLAN and allows direct RDP to every device that’s configured for it. Exactly what I needed for working securely from home on my Mac.

Doesn’t Work

I really want this to work but it does not let me even get to the screen to enter my username, password and optional domain. I enter the IP address for my sonicwall VPN, hit connect and then it quickly flashes the login credentials screen but does not give me a chance to enter anything. Don’t bother downloading until the developers update this so it actually works.

Refuses to Connect

I use a Sonicwall TZ appliance for my small business. In addtion to the appliance, I purchased 2 VPN client licenses. I currently VPN with my Windows laptop to my firewall, then use Remote Desktop to run on my Windows Server. I would like to do the same with my Mac. I have the Remote Desktop app since it came with Office, so all I needed to connect was the Sonicwall VPN client. When I saw it in the App Store I was excited. Boy, did my excitement quickly turn into frustration. I can open and run the app, but at Add Connection I get: ‘ is either currently unreachable or is not a valid SonicWALL appliance. Would you like to save this connection anyway? I triple checked the address and connected with my Windows machine just to make sure everything was working. I tried and tried to connect, but to no avail. I do not see any reason why I would be unable to connect, but I cannot. This app does not work.

Not working at all

Username/Password prompt shows up for a second then dissapears every time after accepting the connection. Can’t add any connections.
