I use Sonicwall to access my company so it's on pretty much all day for that.

I recently acquired another server with Open VPN installed and have been connecting with the program Tunnelblick without any issue.

I stumbled upon Viscosity and heard it was good so I downloaded the trial and gave it a whirl. I noticed whenever I connected with Viscosity it broke my connection with Sonicwall unlike with Tunnelblick.

I need to have both working so I can flip back and forth between servers. Is there a setting on Viscosity that is causing the connection break? Please advise.

Thank you,

Hi Jim,

Connecting to multiple VPN connections at the same time can be complicated as they may have clashing routes etc. This is all the more complex when using multiple different VPN applications to do it. Please see: ... taneously/

I'm afraid we have no experience with Sonicwall, and so we can't offer up any suggestions as to what may be going on.
