Version 1.7.10 of Viscosity has been released for both Mac and Windows! This update has a focus on improved support for bridged VPN connections, with new options for DHCP-set routes, automatic route delay, and routing and DNS improvements. We've also made a great deal of small changes and bug fixes to address user feedback.
Bridged (TAP) connections can now use a "route-delay auto" advanced command to wait for a DHCP and/or IPv6 auto-configuration assigned IP address, instead of having to manually specify the number of seconds to wait. This will allow for faster initial connection times, especially for those on low-latency connections.
This version also supports the use of a DHCP-assigned default gateway (using a "dhcp" parameter for the Default Gateway option) to make IPv4 routing setup easier, along with a "route-ipv6-gateway" advanced command to make IPv6 setup easier.
On the macOS side, we've also improved DNS support when using DHCP and IPv6 auto-configuration, added support for routes pushed via DHCP, and added support for Continuity so macOS features like HandOff, message forwarding, and receiving calls should work as expected while connected to a VPN connection.
Finally, this release also works around a session-token handling issue in OpenVPN that could incorrectly cause a connected VPN connection to disconnect with an authentication failure once a session timeout was reached.
