Hi, is it possible to auto connect to a certain vpn when a specific network connects via wifi ?

Or is there way externally and calling OpenVPN via an applescript ?

Thanks

Hi berksgr,

As Viscosity is controllable via AppleScript you could use a custom script or a third party application to tell Viscosity when to connect. Three apps that I know of that should work are:

Home Zone - http://mac.softpedia.com/get/Security/Home-Zone.shtml
MarcoPolo - http://www.symonds.id.au/marcopolo/
Sidekick - http://oomphalot.com/sidekick/

Details on controlling Viscosity via AppleScript can be found at:

Cheers,
