Hi All,

Update: A beta version of 1.0.6 is now available. This release includes full 64 bit kernel support, fixes the alternate DNS support issue, and a few additional small improvements. It can be downloaded here.

Version 1.0.5 users can continue to use Viscosity under Snow Leopard if they are booted into 32 bit kernel mode, and are using Viscosity's default DNS support.

Cheers,
James

Hello James,

I've just upgraded and the configuration that I had is now failing. Here is the Viscosity log:

Anything that I can try to get it to work?

Since installing Max OS X 10.6 last night I can not reach certain IPs with Viscosity running.

My Viscocity log:

I've never checked my log before I upgraded, so I don't no if those messages really mean anything.

When I disconnect my VPN connection all is good. Some sites will be reachable by http: after I disconnect and reconnect. POP3 addresses never seem reachable.

Thanks,

Grant

Hi Sylvain,

It looks like you have alternate DNS support turned on. Please see "Issue: Alternate DNS Support Fails" in the post above.

Hi Grant,
Since installing Max OS X 10.6 last night I can not reach certain IPs with Viscosity running.
Judging by your log it looks like something is overriding Viscosity's attempt to allow the DNS support scripts to run. Try the following:

1. Open Viscosity's Preferences window and Edit your connection
2. Click the Advanced tab
3. If there is a line beginning with "script-security", delete that line
4. Add the command "script-security 2" (no quotes) on a new line
5. Click the Save button and try connecting

Cheers,
James

Hi tiktoor,
I have the following issue:

It looks like you are using an old version. Only version 1.0.5 (and above) are supported under Snow Leopard.

Ok James, this works.

I thought, my Installation had to be up to date because I am using Viscosity on a regular basis.
It would be a good hint to tell the Users, that the auto-update might not work if they installed SN.
I tried cmd-i but it only gave me the 1.0 info. So there is no possibility to now, if you are using the right version.

Thank you for your help!

Sorry but I can't connect (anymore).. :cry:
Using 10.6 on an unibody MacBook, tried the 32 thing, tried the "script-security 2" thing to no avail.
Connecting to an Astaro server,

resolv-retry infinite
--proto tcp-client
auth MD5
cipher AES-192-CBC
tls-remote /C=de/L=xxxx/O=xxx/CN=xxxx/emailAddress=[email protected]
reneg-sec 0

that used to work, now it looks like viscosity is connecting for a second (green icon) and then is reconnecting.
My log (the ip's are xxxed) :
