Viscosity works really well for me, but can, and if so how, can I share my vpn connection.
I connect to it though my macbook pro mid 2012, and I want to be able to share the VPN connection via bluetooth, ethernet, or maybe even another WiFi adaptor. Is this possible?
I am on version 2 of murus on the public beta 5. I am currently testing Viscosity with the free demo version, but if I am able to successfully share my VPN connection, I will probably buy it.

Hi atticusedwards,

I'm afraid sharing a VPN connection isn't something that is officially supported by Viscosity. It is possible to do via custom macOS firewall rules (to enable NAT and routing, and optionally DHCP), however I'm afraid this isn't something we're able to offer any instructions or guides for.

Some users have generously contributed their approaches to sharing a connection, such as the topic linked below, so I'd recommend starting there:
