This app loses it’s (bleep)… when swtching network connections...

This app has a very difficut time switching network connections. Crashing out of it or disconnecting and reconnecting (which takes forever) doesn’t seem to work most of time when you switch/failover to a better network connection. It’s frustrating in the extreme. Even when you crash out of the app, only a reboot appears to really clear up what’s happening with the network stack. I’m looking forward to switching to Meraki.

Update your SonicWall's firmware

If you're having trouble using this app to connect, talk to IT and get the firmware on your SonicWall updated. I suffered with this app's inconsistent ability to connect to my company VPN through our SonicWall for a couple of years, angry that working from home always meant spending half an hour getting connected and then carefully keeping my laptop open to maintain the connection.
A few weeks ago IT was reviewing this issue and found that we were several releases behind on firmware updates. They ran the updates one night (be careful, these aren't just bug fixes but additional features that will need to be reviewed - our system was down for a while due to new and more intense DPI), and suddenly I connect within seconds every time. If I forget to disconnect it before I close my laptop, the VPN now reconnects within seconds.
This app has completely dropped off my radar as a tech hassle since upgrading our firmware.

Works great for me...

I really don’t get all the hate for this app. I have a SonicWALL VPN appliance that is properly configured and regularly updated. The only issue I have ever had with earlier versions were caused by Apple MacOS upgrades, and not the app/SonicWALL itself. Apple changes things with every new release, and it takes vendors a while to catch up. Beyond that- this has been rock-solid for me. I travel quite a bit on business and need this to access my LAN. A lot of times I completely forget I’m running it- it’s been fast and reliable.

I searched for an answer here before posting this question.

But, very very curious to know whether someone knows how to connect to a SonicWall VPN from Mac OS (Lion)?

If it is for a Netextender/SSL-VPN, yes there is, it is on their support website. I don't think there is a 'global vpn' client for Mac though.


In the past we used a program called IPSecuritas that worked OK. Every now and then we would have DNS issues, which caused a lot of work of 'band-aiding' the problem by editing the host file on the user's computer.

Later, we switched over to their SSLVPN service and it has worked great ever since! We've been using it for probably over a year now and the time I've had to spend supporting it is almost zero. If your device supports it, set it up!
