I'm 99% sure it was OpenVPN 2.3, but I can't be sure without re-installing WIndows 7 to getting rid of the runtime files I installed.

Hi Peen,

Thanks for the reply. We've had a close look and it should be just OpenVPN 2.3 that had the problem and we've updated the included msvc dll's accordingly. Thanks again for the bug report!

Regards,

Eric

I hope this is the right thread to post in, apologies if it isn't!
Quick feedback for the latest beta 1.4.3b1:

German Translation:
  • Within the main "settings" -> "general" window, the new German translation for "Check for Updates" is "too long" for the button (see attached screenshot) and thus looks very weird. I suggest either changing the size (which would have to be done for all other languages too and might be "inconvenient") or switching back to the phrase "Auf Updates prüfen...", since "Update" is an "established" word in the German language too.
  • When editing a connection, the second tab "Authentifizierung" is too small for its content too. Not 100% sure this wasn't there before the new beta though.
  • The log-entries generated by Viscosity lack German translation at some parts. Here are a few I've found:
    "State changed to Connecting" = "Status auf "Verbinden" geändert"
    "Running on XXX" = "Ausgeführt auf XXX" (not 100% sure about this one, best translation I could find)
    "Bringing up interface..." = "Aktiveren des Interfaces" or "Aktivieren des Netzwerkadapters" (second one says "Bringing up network adapter")
    "Initialization Sequence Completed" = "Initialisierungssequenz abgeschlossen"
    "State changed to Connected" = "Status auf "Verbunden" geändert"
    A few others are missing since I didn't see them at the moment. Will post them once I find them, if you want additional help with translations, feel free to send me a message, I'd be glad to help out.
General feedback:
  • Connecting on startup seems to be working a bit better, although it still fails sometimes on my laptop (since my Win7 laptop takes ages to boot and establish a network connection, Viscostiy often tries to connect before the wifi connections has been started). I'd figure a changeable "startup-delay" or a configurable "retry connectivity check X times after Y seconds" setting would be a desirable way to solve this
  • I have not found those two points from the changelog:
    * Editing can now be locked down to require Administrator rights
    * Global preferences can now be set
    Did I oversee them or can anyone point me to those settings or explain them in a bit more detail? I guess the first one allows you to disallow all non-admin users to mess with your VPN-connections and the second one can be used to set preferences like DNS for all connections?
