VPN Tracker 4 with Mac OS X 10.4.1 Update now fully Tiger compatible
Speed problems solved with Apple's update, Tiger overtakes the Panther.
Boston/Munich − May 17, 2005: With Apple's today update to Mac OS X 10.4.1, VPN Tracker 4, the
leading Mac OS X VPN client, is completely Tiger compatible. Due to a
kernel issue in the first Tiger version (10.4.0), VPN connections were
plagued by sluggishness and delay. Apple, in close cooperation with
equinux, has now solved this problem.
equinux presented VPN
Tracker 4 at the Networld+Interop trade show in Las Vegas this May. The
new version offers important features like Smart VPN (automatic VPN
connection when needed), Mode-Config support (with support for Cisco's
EasyVPN) and automatic NAT detection and runs smoothly with Tiger. The
data transfer speed of the VPN connection has even been improved when
compared to Mac OS X 10.3 („Panther").
„This is a great
development for Tiger users – now they don't have to choose between
Tiger and a fast VPN", commented Ortwin Gentz, equinux CTO. „To solve
the kernel issue, we worked in close cooperation with Apple achieving
the best solution for our customers. All Tiger users can now profit
from our efforts."
