I've been tasked with programmatically disabling "Reconnect Active Connections on Wake"(in the General Preferences menu) from our internal network team. A glance of the Viscosity plist and some Google research isn't very promising, so figured I'd go directly to the source. Any ideas on if this can be modified via plist/preference keys or is there another suggested method? Any assistance on this matter would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Chris,

It can be programmatically disabled by running the following command as the same user running Viscosity:
Code: Select all
defaults write com.viscosityvpn.Viscosity ReconnectOnWake -bool false

Or you can bundle the setting into Viscosity: it sounds like this may be for managed machines, in which case the following guides should help:
