If you're hitting the
Code: Select all
Cannot allocate TUN/TAP dev dynamically
problem the temporary work around until kext signing gets sorted is to run the following command and reboot.
Code: Select all
sudo nvram boot-args="kext-dev-mode=1"

Quickly answering my own question, the answer lies right in the (Yosemite) release notes which I read this time too quickly.
https://developer.apple.com/library/pre ... index.html
It only lets unsigned or not adequately signed kext to load, else by default it blocks them from loading. Yosemite requires a different developer ID signature for kexts than the usual one. I understand these have not all yet reached all developers.

Build Notice: Viscosity 1.4.11b14 Now Available

This build adds support for Yosemite DP4. However please note that this build contains significant internal performance enhancements and security changes that have not yet been well tested, and so this build should be considered highly experimental.

Just for confidence to anyone out there, tested this on Yosemite Public Beta 1, and it works just fine.
Version 1.4.11 (1204)

Great job James !

Hi,

I've been testing Version 1.4.11 (1204) with the Yosemite beta 1, and the vpn connection is established correctly, but it does not forward all traffic to the VPN tunnel, only the routes that are sent by the VPN are seen.

In networking I have the options set, to "send all the traffic to the VPN connection", and no gateway configured (as it was before)

The routing table looks like this:
Code: Select all
0/1                192.168.253.1      UGSc            0        0    tap0
which does not look right. Gateway is correct (192.168.253.1)

Let me know if I can provide more logs/help.

Best regards.

James

Hi,

So I have managed to get the default routing into the tunnel working again, I had to do the following command:

Code: Select all
Christophes-Mac-Pro:~ cngo$ sudo route delete default
Christophes-Mac-Pro:~ cngo$ sudo route add w.x.y.z 192.168.100.1
add host w.x.y.z : gateway 192.168.100.1
Christophes-Mac-Pro:~ cngo$ sudo route add default 192.168.253.1
add net default: gateway 192.168.253.1
2nd one is to make my VPN public IP reachable through my internet connection (gw 192.168.100.1)
3rd one, forwarding all traffic to the VPN gateway (192.168.253.1)

b16 works fine for me on Beta1

Best regards.

EDIT: problem solved, for whatever reason now you need to enter the gateway in the config when redirecting the traffic.

Hello,

i just updated to the OSX 10.10 public beta 1 (=DP4?), and Viscosity is not running properly...
if i try to connect to one of my vpn servers (running just fine half an hour earlier on 10.9.4) it can not connect to the server.
in the console i get this message again and again:
30.07.14 13:54:58,888 CloudKeychainProxy[2102]: ckdproxymain Running as root, exiting..
30.07.14 13:54:58,889 com.apple.xpc.launchd[1]: (com.apple.security.cloudkeychainproxy3) Service only ran for 0 seconds. Pushing respawn out by 10 seconds.
What am i doing wrong? i tried to completly uninstall and reinstall the beta 16 of Viscosity but it doesnt matter how many times i try, it wont work.
(My config files (*.ovpn;...) are just two days old, so i dont think the config are false.
(I do not use icloud keychain, if this message has anything to do with that)

I would really appreciate any help.

Greetings and thanks for your work,
Marco

edit: I can enter name + password, but after that no connection can be established. I also tried Tunnelblick and if i try to connect there it tells me that "OpenVPN can not be started" ... is this a 10.10 problem?
