Ratings and Reviews
Great for Dynamic IP VPNs
This app works in conjunction with VPN Server Configurator, which performs the one-time VPN setup. Once setup is complete, this VPN Server Agent app is optional, but very convenient for displaying VPN status, starting and stopping the server, showing the VPN log, emailing you when your IP address changes (yes, you CAN run a VPN server on a dynamic-IP address!) and showing how many users are attached via VPN. After installing, you can download the version from the developer’s website which will also display attached users by name and when they attached. Although VPN serving capability is built into Mac OS X, getting to it is so difficult, arcane, and frustrating that I had already given up several times. Setting up clients is no picnic either. VPN Server Configurator (available from developer’s website) makes Mac OS X VPN easier to set up than a paid public VPN service, and a free companion app even automates setting up Mac clients. I connect to my VPN server whenever my iPhone, iPad, or laptop is on an unsecured public wifi network (airport, restaurant, etc.) so my personal information and passwords won’t be compromised. I give the fifth star because GreenWorldSoft has been extremely responsive and helpful in supporting the products, although basically, they just work.
Monitors VPN setup by vpn server configurator
This app monitors the VPN server that is configured by VPN Server Configurator which is only available on the developers website. This app shows when a user is conected to the VPN server and can also be setup to send emails if the IP changes. I have had a good experiance with GreenworldSoft offering suport for the Server Configurator App.
This is not a tool to configure a VPN - just one to monitor it !!
The description implies this can configure vpnd process - it doesn't thats a seperate product that isn't on the app store..
I wasted 3 dollars on this useless tool.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
