Good day everyone,

My company is an enterprise-y company which have a rules for certain department to not allow open source software to be installed on their workstation.

Its a compliance thing, so I'm not complaining.


Hence I'm looking for proprietary VPN client. I already have OpenVPN server.

  • Platform: Windows & Mac
  • Features: Can connect to OpenVPN server
  • Customer Support: Yes

So far I only know about Viscocity

    Viscosity is the only one I can suggest (I was going to until I saw you mentioned it). I've used it for a few years and wouldn't use anything else.

  • instead of openvpn why not go for cisco anyconnect route?

    Can you summarize this?

    From Cisco's page, I don't quite get what this is. Is this an appliance, server software or a client?

    Anyway, the rest of the company have been using OpenVPN server together with OpenVPN client just fine. Only this department have issue because they dealt directly with client's data.

    Cisco AnyConnect is an NSA-backdoor implemented version of L2TP / IPSec. Highly recommended!

    You get CEPH storage backup on NSA servers for free AND still complaining. Eh.

  • Viscosity is pretty good, cheap, and regularly updated

    Why not check my site (https://dawgy.pw) out? If you need to upload a few GIFs, give https://i.dawgy.pw a try <3

    Just curious, is there any other proprietary VPN client that support Windows & Mac, that you guys know of?

    As for my case, money is not an issue

  • Last place I worked at had Viscosity because of both OS being usable

    Why are we still allowing bypassing AUP/TOS (Netflix) requests? We're one thread pull away from being HF.

  • I end up recommending only Viscosity & Shimo VPN(Mac only) to my management.

    They seems to inclined on Viscosity anyway, since its multi platformed.

    Thanks everyone.
