We use viscosity on a daily basis as our VPN client at work and so far it works great.
But recently our operations introduced a 6pin OTP we have to add to the standard credentials in order to dial in.
Viscosity supports remembering the credentials (on mac in the key chain). Since the change, that obviously includes the 6pin from the last successful dial in.

My current workflow is as follows:
- start viscosity
- remove the last 6 chars from the password, as this is the OTP from last time
- enter 6 digit OTP
- connect

Tunnelblick recently added an interesting feature:
There is now a 3rd optional input field that is only for such onetime passwords, this part is not saved and therefore does not have to be removed every time.

I would love to see a similar feature added to viscosity.

Hi mokipedia,

Just wanted to note that separate prompt support for two-factor challenges that form part of a password is something we've added to the latest Viscosity beta:
