Today we released VPN Tracker 5.0.1. And no, you do not have to pay for this update (that is, if you already have VPN Tracker 5). We didn’t make too many changes, but we wanted to fix a few issues and make the demo version easier to use. For starters, DHCP leases will be handled more reliably when connecting via alternative network access methods (such as mobile phones or PPPoE). VPN Tracker 5 now connects flawlessly to Juniper Netscreen devices with Perfect Forward Secrecy (PFS) enabled. We improved the overall handling of connections to multiple networks and last, but not least – SmartCard support can now be tested in demo mode.
Oh, and there’s one more thing: We also decided to change the default behavior regarding the ports used for establishing connections. VPN Tracker 5.0.1 uses static ports (500/4500) by default to increase compatibility with certain devices. If you use Back to my Mac in Mac OS X 10.5, you can always switch back to dynamic ports in the preferences.
