Just works. Very simple.
Nice little app that does what it says seamlessly. Doesn’t require re-authenticated each time as an earlier review claimed.
After installing I tinkered around with various network connections turning them on and off again while this was running. It performed flawlessly. It gives you a warning when there is no network connection, which is nice. The only nit of a recommendation is that after three or five warnings it would either turn off automatically or ask you if you want to turn it off. But for the price, I’m happy with what it does. Oh, and sleep mode is nice – it reconnects after waking from sleep.
Simple, elegant, and almost completely transparent.
This application works as advertised. If you have a VPN profile already set up, simply tell the app to connect to it whenever Wi-Fi is detected. Waa laa, it connects every time I open my laptop. Here is the only problem. I am connecting to a VPN server at my house. As such, as soon as I get home and open my laptop, it tries to connect to the VPN….and fails because it can’t loop back to the same IP I’m originating from. If the developer could update this app to allow for exceptions, then I could avoid having it try to connect on certain SSID’s, while connecting everywhere else. That would make the app AMAZING and definitely worth 5 stars! Please consider this enhancement.
Doesn’t save login information
There are two main problems with this app. The first is there’s no preferences section where you can have it open on startup and the second is you can’t save the VPN credentials. So if you get disconnected the program tries to reconnect, but if you have to reenter your login it doesn’t finish. These are fatal errors and the program should be avoided until they are fixed.
