When disconnecting connections, I get this prompt a lot:

macOS Catalina 10.15.1 + Viscosity 1.8.1 (1511)

anything I can do to avoid this?

Hi luckman212,

This indicates that your connection has a custom Disconnected script set, which is prompting for admin rights for some reason. You may want to consider removing the script if it isn't needed, or editing it to avoid the need for it to prompt for credentials.

Hey James

Sorry I didn't reply sooner (never got any notification from the forum about your post, just happened to stop back here by accident. Hmm, will have to check my notification settings...)

Anyway, you were exactly right- one of my connections had a disconnect script that I had forgotten about. I didn't really need it so I cleared it out, problem solved!

Thank you!!
:D
