We’ve also made some UI improvements and even added alternative device vendor logos to work smoothly with macOS Mojave and it’s Dark Mode. And more good news for Mojave users –  we’ve also updated VPN Shortcuts and automatically opening at login to work with Mojave’s new security requirements, so they will now work as expected.

New Export Options for Connection Safe

We’ve already heard lots of positive reviews on our secure Connection Safe feature, and in this version we’ve added new controls for admins. 365 18.3 improves the enterprise controls for VPN admins, with additional control over exported connections.

Choose a preferred permission for user’s Connection Safe when preparing a connection for export. There are 3 options now. You can either require a connection to be stored in Connection Safe automatically, prevent it from being added or simply let the user decide.

Support for Routers Running DD-WRT 

With this update, we’re introducing a support for routers running the popular source firmware DD-WRT with OpenVPN support. This means that we now support a whole range of new devices, provided you’re running DD-WRT.

We’ve also prepared a detailed Configuration Guide to help you get started.

OpenVPN Improvements

With 365 18.3 we are introducing some improvements that will make it even easier to get started with an OpenVPN connection.

Here’s what we’ve done:

  • Introduced Host to Everywhere support for OpenVPN connections
  • Added more configuration options for SonicWALL and OpenVPN devices
  • Fixed an issue where OpenVPN connections would not work after connecting
  • Made it easier to import your configuration files

Amazon Web Services Setup Improvement

As more and more organizations are moving their infrastructure to Amazon’s AWS cloud, we are offering a full support of AWS VPC. You can find more info on the set-up in our earlier blogpost.

With previous VPN Tracker versions some AWS users may have experienced an issue when multiple users were sharing a single public IP address. Now our improved AWS setup correctly supports such a use case.
