Unreliable Connections

I think it's very annoying that users have to use a designaed SonicWall app to VPN into a SonicWall firewall instead of being able to use a VPN connection built into Mac and Windows machines. To make matters worse the app is unreliable. When traveling and trying to VPN into the office the app just open with a blank display. I think this issue may have been addressed with the latest upddae, but that remains to be seen. One last issue, why doesn't the app use touch ID to allow users to sign in without having to type in a password everytime.

It's pretty clear the people that wrote this app don't use it, otherwise it wouldn't be so unrelaibe and inconvienent.

And before anyone says anyting... the SonicWall Firmware is up to date and using the latest version of this app.

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.

Sonicwall needs to support this like it supports Windows VPN

3 Stars because when it works it works well and lets me do what I need to do remotely and at a good speed. I hear if I upgraded to Catalina this app would implode. Not good. Onto the bad...
We have to pay for additional SSL VPN licenses so any excuses about "free" are not allowed. Even before Sierra this app was incredibly prone to randomly disconnecting from my employer's rocksteady nodes.
Then it does the disconnect dance where it says "disconnecting" until you disconnect it by force quitting because the disconnect button does not work when the connection has hung. Sometimes then when you restart the app it is still in that mode so you have to give it a few before you reconnect to your perfectly stable VPN node back in HQ. I do this dance several times a week. It depends on the mood of the App or the Sonicwall. Not sure which as we keep our Sonicwall devices very up to date and in good shape.
