Support for OpenConnect?

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?

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.

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

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.

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?

I would like to add +1.

As a visocity user I would extremely like to have openconnect support.
