So with other VPN clients, an interface shows up in mac system preferences. You can then share them under the sharing option in mac system preferences. 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 found really old guides that involved WaterRoof, but I am on mac os catalina and I do not intend to downgrade. I got the Murus program because it was on the WaterRoof site as a newer alternative, but I am not sure how to use that as well. 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.

Thanks! :D

Hi randomodbuild,

I recommend referring to the post made by rinku here:
https://www.sparklabs.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=122&start=10#p2487

Instead of using "tun0" in the post you can find out the correct VPN network interface for your connection from the connection log in Viscosity (look for a line like "Opened utun device utun10" - in this case utun10 is the VPN network adapter).
