Hey,

I use Viscosity in combination with CyberGhost VPN and have set up a port forwarding for SSH on my router and Mac. It all works as long as I don't connect the Mac to the VPN, but unfortunately it stops working as soon as I connect my Mac to the VPN. How can I fix this?

Kind regards,
Revali

Hi Revali,

If you have setup port forwarding on your router (port forwarding a port from your router to your Mac), then you can try adding a route to your VPN connection to instruct that traffic to your router's internal IP address should go through your normal network connection. Please see:

Hey,

thanks, I already read the article, but unfortunately it doesn't really help me if the clients from which a connection to the SSH server is established have dynamic IP addresses from different subnets. As far as I found out this only works if the clients (not the SSH server on the Mac that is also running Viscosity) have a static IP.

Kind regards,
Revali
