Works Just Fine - Don’t let the bad ratings scare you!
This client works great, but you do have to set things up porperly. I had to go through a little learning curve, but got it to work fine.
First of all, your SonicWall needs to have the latest formware, or at very least something within the last year or so. This is key. You cant expect a current version of a sensitive application like a VPN client to run with old firmware on the firewall? It goes against safe VPN concepts.
* I had the issue with the client not disconnecting and had to reboot my older Mac, but once I updated formware on the firewall and configured the firewall porperly, the permanent disconnting error went a way.
The other thing to know is that it uses “Search Domains” for DNS on the firewall side. Without proper configuration on the firewal side, nothing will resolve correctly over the VPN tunnel. This is by design. It works perfectly once you set up proper searches.
The “How To” docs are ok, but not that easy to find unless you really know what to hunt for. I admit, I lamost gave up. But once I found what I was looking for, I got it configured pretty quickly and am now convinced it’s fairly decent VPN client!
