In my n00b network configuration attempts I made a bad VPN profile setting, accidentally set to load automatically at startup. Therefore I am having a loop-around of the Network Verification Failed dialog box any time Viscosity is opened. I have tried the removal and reinstall steps is mentioned in the background of the screenshot.

Help is appreciated. n00b networking attempts I know.

Hi FalafalPhil,

Quit Viscosity (Force Quit it using Activity Monitor if you have to), and then run the following command in the Terminal (located at /Applications/Utilities/Terminal) to remove your connection/s:
Code: Select all
rm -R ~/Library/Application\ Support/Viscosity/OpenVPN/
The latest beta version of Viscosity includes some better detection of misconfigurations that could cause a reconnect loop if the "Automatically reconnect if disconnected" option is selected, so you may also like to try giving that a go: ... -versions/
