Hi!

Thanks for the great product! I've always despised VPN clients and the complication they bring to my working life. Viscosity manages to be entirely seamless -- most impressive.

Unfortunately, my employer has moved to a new VPN solution which is not supported by Viscosity. Thus my question: do you have plans to add support for OpenConnect [0] as an additional backing client implementation?

Thanks,
Nick

Hi Nick,

Thanks for the positive feedback - much appreciated.

Multi-protocol support is something this is coming (fairly soon we hope). To be honest I wasn't even aware the OpenConnect project existed, however it looks pretty solid (and you're not the first to ask for AnyConnect SSL support) so we'll see about implementing it as well.

Cheers,
James

Hi,

I too would like to see OpenConnect/AnyConnect SSL support - any update on when you might support this?

Thanks,
Graham

Hi Graham,

Glad to hear there is some demand for this. I'm afraid there is no ETA at this stage - we've got a lot of projects in the works, but hopefully we'll have something available sometime soon.

Cheers,
James

I also wanted to voice my support for OpenConnect integration.

I have used it quite a bit and I was thinking of creating a GUI myself, but considering I just bought Viscosity, I would love to see you add it :)

(I really don't understand why my University uses AnyConnect anyway... but alas, I don't have a choice in the matter)

Bump; my company just changed from an OpenVPN server to a Cisco AnyConnect VPN (boo). The vendor native client is terrible; openconnect works as a command-line VPN client, but I'd love a SparkLabs take on this.

Ditto. This would be an awesome addition to the best VPN client on OS X.

As a fairly long time user of Viscosity I'd like to give a "+1" to the call for OpenConnect support to be added to Viscosity.

OpenConnect seems to have some advantages over OpenVPN, is far quicker to connect, gives a slightly higher throughput speed (at least for me), and (if I'm understanding correctly) has the advantage that data using it cannot be identified as using a VPN at all. The only disadvantage I can find is that there is a CPU overhead not present with OpenVPN.

Is there any chance of Viscosity supporting OpenConnect in the near future?
