Viscosity For Mac & Windows: Version 1.7.10

Version 1.7.10 or Viscosity has been released for both Mac and Windows! This update has a focus on improved support for bridged VPN connections, with new options for DHCP set routes, automatic route delay, and routing and DNS improvements. We’ve made a great deal of small changes and bug fixes to address user feedback.

Bridged (TAP) connections can now use a “route-delay auto”. IP address, instead of the IPv6 auto-configuration assignments. This will allow for faster initial connection times, especially for those on low-latency connections.

This version also supports the use of DHCP-assigned default gateway (using a “dhcp” parameter for the Default Gateway option) to make IPv4 routing setup easier, along with a “route-ipv6-gateway” advanced command to make IPv6 setup easier .

On the macOS side, we’ve also improved DNS support when using DHCP and IPv6 auto-configuration, added support for routes pushed via DHCP, and added support for Continuity so macOS features like HandOff, message forwarding, and receiving calls should work as expected while connected to a VPN connection.

Finally, this release also works around a session-token handling issue in OpenVPN that could incorrectly cause a connected connection.
