Hi Troy, The default set of scripts essentially removes the current Mac OS X DNS settings when you connect, and replaces them with the DNS server/s set by your VPN connection. When the VPN connection is disconnected, the VPN's DNS servers are removed, and the original DNS servers are restored. The "...

Hi Arion, Thanks for the detailed and constructive feedback. Viscosity doesn't seem to handle this and fails silently (but adds a Console log error entry) Unfortunately this is due to a small bug that has snuck into the 1.0 release (it can also affect the "Import Tunnelblick Connections" option as w...

Hi jmj, Redirecting all traffic through the VPN connection is simply a matter of editing your connection in Viscosity, clicking on the Networking tab, and ticking "Send all traffic over VPN connection". In most cases you should leave the "Default Gateway" field blank. If your server side config is a...

Both Viscosity and the standard Cisco VPN client can be installed on the same computer. They can both be used at the same time, however it's necessary to open the Cisco VPN client before connecting an OpenVPN connection to avoid a subsystem error from the Cisco client. The tun/tap drivers that OpenV...

but isn't able to actually ping (100% packet loss)
Microsoft have their website firewalled against pings - so it's not something wrong at your end :)
Long way round it, but it'll work?!
Yes, that should work.

dynamic global host was on, now off, restarted, but not fixed. It might be worth looking at the post at the very bottom of this page . The author had a similar problem, however merely un-ticking the box didn't help: he had to do some extra steps to make it stick. my wired connection is actually jus...

Any other ideas? It's bizzare that terminal works (resolv.conf is correct, scutil reports correct, dig works, nslookup works etc) but OS X refuses to let applications work Well I'd be inclined to blame an OS X setting or bug. Here are two more things you could try: 1. Go to the directory "/etc/reso...

Well that certainly seems a little odd. Some command line utilities will still work by getting DNS information from resolve.conf, rather than the Mac OS X DNS system (which can sometimes explain why tools like nslookup might work, but not Safari, etc). However the latter appears to being set correct...

Hi JSamuel, A few things to try: 1. Go to Preferences->Advanced and tick "Use alternate DNS support", and then try reconnecting. Viscosity will use an alternate method to inform Mac OS X about the DNS server/s, which may or may not help in your case. 2. If the above doesn't help, try turning it back...
