VPN connection problem while using Little Snitch

Post by peterparker78 » Sun Jun 21, 2015 9:31 pm

HI there,

Little Snitch Latest version 3.5.3

OSX 10.9.5

I have recently updated LS when the latest update was released and since then I have problem connecting to Private Internet Access (PIA) or Smart DNS VPN while Little Snitch is running. i tried Tunnelblick as well as Open VPN, using native PIA client as well as Viscosity however the problem remains. I even created a rule allowing connection to PIA in little snitch however the only way I can connect to VPN if LS is turned off. Once I establish connection, it will carry on working as long as mac is awake. As soon as mac goes to sleep and wake it up again, VPN connection is lost.

My mac book pro running 10.10.3 does not have this issue at all and I can establish VPN connection even if LS is running.

Any ideas how to resolve this issue

Thank you

Enable automatic profile switching in preferences.
Enable silent mode allow all incoming connections.
Establish a vpn connection and then create a new profile for that connection.

Hi guys,

These VPN kill swithces are NO match for Little Snitch's Kill Switch features. AMong other things, WHen I am torrending, and suddenly my VPN drops but I am working online LS automatically switches the connection rules blocking the torrent app while not blocking my other apps based on the rules I have defined. Plus, most of these VPN Kill switches are buggy and cause problems. So both feature wise and in terms of just working, there is a problem with them.

Also, users such as @eastham and @Cuzman46 are affiliates paid by those respective VPN Services - whether or not tohse VPNs are good I wont say, but stay away from such people (SEe here: viewtopic.php?f=1&t=9886)

Also, a bunch of people here too @Sulayman , @AlexanderAddisoon, @jameshouston135 at this url: (viewtopic.php?f=1&t=9576&start=15).

Please stop damage LS's development by undermining LS's superior Kill Switch feature. Thankls. I hope the moderators take a look at these users and at least remove some of their posts.
