OpenVPN with Viscosity

  • Create an Issue
  • Cancel

Hi

First of all: RDM is a awesome product, it makes our life as supporter much easier!

One thing we would really appreciate:
Plattform independet OpenVPN connections.

We have dozens of customers with openvpn gateways. We use Windows and Mac for remote connections and there is no possability to store a openvpn connection in RDM which is OS independet. Tunnelblick works for OSX and OpenVPN GUI for Windows.

For this usecase it would be awesome to have an integration of Viscosity https://www.sparklabs.com/viscosity/

Viscosity runs on both platforms like a charm and the configuration files are same on both systems.

The offers an api.

Do you see a chance for that?

Thanks in advance

Hi,
I will enter a feature request for that. I'm not sure how easy it would be to do the integration and we will need a little bit of R&D

Hi,
I would also like to request this smile Even if it's just to control VPN connections that need to be configured in Viscosity.

Here are documentation that would be useful.

If it's not enough I think that contacting the company that makes it may result in cooperation smile

Hi everyone,

we are using Viscosity VPN as well and are in the middle of refreshing our RDM licenses.
In our workflow it is usual to have multiple VPNs open at the same time, hence Viscosity.

Right now, I solved it by using a command line entry with the custom variables set;
"C:\Program Files\Viscosity\Viscosity.exe" connect "$CUSTOMER_CUSTOM_FIELD4$ - %USERNAME%@$CUSTOMER_CUSTOM_FIELD3$"

That is all fine for connecting, but the commandline only has an option to disconnect ALL connections, while the software itself allows for disconnecting specific VPNs.


I am sure the guys at sparklabs will enjoy their own Addon and support you in this endeavor,
it would be awesome to have full integration in RDM.

Thanks in advance,
Michael

Hello,

Is there some documentation that you can provide us on the command line, like which commands are supported as example?
We would need this to start the evaluation/possibility of creating an add-on.

Best regards,

Hi Jeff,

thanks to your question I dug up the tiny documentation for commandline Viscosity:
https://www.sparklabs.com/support/kb/article/controlling-viscosity-from-command-line-windows/

They finally have a way to disconnect single VPNs. Out of curiosity, I tested it and it's actually working.
So now I can connect and disconnect specific VPNs, still would be nice to have it integrated anyway.

regards,
Michael

Hello,

Thank you for providing the command line help. We should be able to integrate this. We will let you know once we have something ready.

This would be awesome!

Please integrate it platform independet. A connection created in Windows RDM should also be usable in Mac RDM.

Best regards

Do you know if the Mac version also has a way to send a connect and disconnect command? If so, then we can definitely add it to the mac version as well.
