[SOLVED] Automatic Profile Switching: VPN Connection not detected (using Viscosity or Network Profile)

Postby ptts » Fri Aug 11, 2017 11:18 pm

Hi there!

Since upgrading to version 4 Little Snitch doesn't recognise me connecting to my VPN via Viscosity anymore... In prior versions it would show up as "OpenVPN" in the known network lists and automatically activate my "VPN Enabled"-Profile. Now it's just recognised as an "Unknown Network" and treated accordingly.

Connecting through my VPN Profile setup in the macOS network settings yields the same result (detected as unknown network) as connecting through Viscocity so does my VPN provider's VPN mac app.

Has anyone experiences the same thing? Workarounds?
Any obdev developers here to chip in?

Thanks!
Pat

EDIT:
I just figured it out myself. Networks seem to all show up as "Unknown" in the connection notification but they can still be added with the correct network-name when double-clicking a profile and then hitting the "+"-button.
