Current Version: Client: 6.2.2 (June 16, 2010)

Equinux USA Inc. produces VPN Tracker, a tool for IPsec networking that helps you connect to VPN hardware and software with Mac OS X. The software is available for purchase in both "Professional" and "Personal" editions, as well as in a special "Player" edition.

Version 6.2.2 adds/changes the following:

  • Added support for ZyWALL USG Series and ZyWALL 1050
  • Updated configuration guides and device profiles for ZyWALL 2/5/35/70 and ZyWALL 5/35/70 UTM
  • DHCP host names now have the format hostname-VPNT to improve compatibility with some DHCP servers
  • XAUTH messages are no longer displayed if they have not changed since the last successful login
  • Fixed an issue renewing DHCP over VPN leases

The demo mode is equivalent to the licensed Professional Edition, so some of the features (such as high-level encryption) will not be available in the Personal edition. A complete comparison of both editions is available. The demo is valid for 30 days, and connections will time out after 3 minutes.

These are applications that are newer and of potential interest, but which I haven't yet selected for permanent inclusion. Have a look, and let me know if you think they deserve to be part of the permanent collection!
