Mac users can now benefit from the safety and comfort of VPN Tracker 6 in partnership with WatchGuard security appliances.
equinux VPN Tracker 6.2.1 is an update to the market leading IPsec based VPN client for Mac OS X. The new version supports Watchguard Fireware XTM-based devices, such as the Firebox X Edge, Core and Peak e-Series and all XTM Series devices.
VPN Tracker 6.2.1 contains pre-configured device profiles for the WatchGuard XTM-2, 5, 8 and 10 Series and the firewalls of the Firebox X Edge, Core, and Peak e-Series. The related configuration instructions for the devices are already available at vpntracker.com/interop .
VPN Tracker 6 offers the new Secure Desktop, gathering your standard applications in a central location: check e-mails, open files and disks from remote servers, use Remote Desktop or restart Windows applications using Parallels Desktop or VMware Fusion. The Secure Desktop automatically builds the necessary VPN connections, disconnecting safely once finished, says equinux CEO Till Schadde.
