Automatic Profile Switching and ExpressVPN

Post by chrisninetwelve » Sat Aug 19, 2017 5:54 pm


I'm having a problem with Little Snitch when combined with ExpressVPN.

I've got LS configured to block all network connectivity if the VPN link is not established. This works well, except that the automatic connection switching seems linked to the VPN IP address that ExpressVPN uses.

As they have a lot of IP addresses, each time I connect I need to add a new IP address to the VPN profile in LS and select 'Activate'.

In the attached image you can see part of the list of IP addresses I've previously added and the new one I'm about to add:


How do I have my VPN connected profile automatically activate regardless of which IP address is used by ExpressVPN?

Thanks for any help!

I am having the same problem.

ExpressVPN and Little Snitch 3 worked great together, but now the Little Snitch 4 app is differentiating each OpenVPN connection according to IP address. Previously, I had a single network "OpenVPN" assigned to my VPN profile, and LS would automatically profile switch when I connected to ExpressVPN. This same setup had worked for PIA too. After I updated today, the automatic switching stopped working.

Please provide a fix for this.

Thank you for any assistance.
