VPN Tracker 5 4 update
Equinux has released the latest version of its IPSec VPN client, VPN Tracker 5.4. The update now supports the newest release of SonicWALL's threat management platform, Network Security Appliance (NSA) 240. The software can be used to configure and administer secure access to virtual private networks. The company aimed to create a simple user interface that resembles iChat, allowing users to group connections in a similar way to the messenger program.
VPN Tracker supports several security technologies, including Preshared Keys from the Mac keychain, and can work with products from SmartCards, PKI Token, and SecurID authentication. The software supports more than 300 VPN devices from a range of manufacturers. VPN Tracker 5.4 is available from the company for $100, or as a free upgrade for registered users of earlier version 5 releases.
