Description
VPN Monitor is a status bar application to monitor and immediately reconnect a lost or 'dropped' VPN connection.

It will automatically reconnect any VPN Service configured under System Preferences > Network. When multiple VPN Services are configured, VPN Monitor's unique fallback feature will cycle through the list until a successful connection has been established.

VPN Monitor will limit your VPN downtime to the absolute minimum!

Specifications:

  • Seamless integration with MAC OS network; no VPN account duplication
  • Supports all native protocols L2TP, PPTP and Cisco IPSec
  • Supports single and multiple VPN Services setup and MAC network locations
  • Automatically switches to an alternative VPN Service when unable to reconnect
  • Shows uptime, downtime, speed, reconnects and active VPN Service
  • Offers a 'heartbeat' option as additional layer of security
  • Autoconnect at application or system startup (add the app to your login items)
  • Optional desktop notification message to warn for a status change
  • Energy saving mode to reduce energy consumption to a minimum

    Requirements:

    At least one VPN service should be configured under System Preferences > Network, which is either the preferred connection (drag to the top of the network services list), or which has the option 'Send all traffic over VPN connection' enabled.

    See VPN Monitor's built-in help for details on secure VPN configuration.

    Operation/Configuration:

    VPN Monitor has been designed to work silently and unobtrusively in the background. By taking advantage of the world's most advanced operating system, VPN Monitor gets notified of changes in connection status and immediately takes the required actions.

    It's intelligent connect and reconnect approach ensures carefree operation. Out-of-the-box operation; no configuration is required, VPN Monitor will use the VPN Services you already created under System Preferences > Network.

    Support:

    VPN Monitor has built-in help and a troubleshooting section.
