VPN Tracker 5

equinux has announced the next generation of VPN Tracker, its VPN client for Mac OS X. Prior to the official release, equinux is inviting experienced VPN users to test VPN Tracker 5 Beta. All applicants will need to provide equinux with the technical specifications for their VPN setup as part of the application process. VPN Tracker 5 provides compatibility with Mac OS X 10.5 and offers new user interface. It is also able to automatically process standard tasks like checking for mails, mounting servers and opening databases with configurable actions. For network administrators, VPN Tracker 5 offers an automatic roll-out tool for large-scale deployment.

The new release was written in Cocoa, allowing it to handle data encryption and authentication much faster over an IPSec based VPN tunnel. Version 5 can also handle several VPN connections independently

The tool is based on the widely recognized IPSec standard and is compatible with more than 300 devices, including Cisco, Netgear, SonicWALL, Watchguard, Fortinet and many others.
