The Latest release of VPN Tracker, the market-leading Mac VPN-client from equinux, will have SonicWall/Mac-users jumping with joy.
Paris - 20. September 2005 − September 20, 2005:
Today the software developer equinux, live from show-floor of Apple expo 2005- Paris, has announced a major version update for their widely-used VPN Client, VPN Tracker. VPN Tracker 4.5 is the only VPN-Client for Mac OS X that supports SonicWall's DHCP over IPsec truly making it the world's premier VPN Solution for Mac OS X.
DHCP over IPsec makes it easier to setup a VPN connection with SonicWALL's VPN-Appliances. "Client Provisioning" is the magical word; this enables a direct download of the VPN-configuration from the SonicWALL VPN-gateway thereby eliminating the need to manually configure each users' computer.
The deployment and management of VPN-installation, through this technology, will be simplified to an extreme. No more individual configuration-files will be needed. This information will be supplied directly from the central configuration of your VPN-Gateway.
"We are very excited that Mac-users with VPN Tracker 4.5 can now gain access more easily to their SonicWALL-based VPN Solution," said Ortwin Gentz, CTO of equinux. "Our collaboration with SonicWALL has been an excellent experience that is sure to be a great benefit for all SonicWALL/Mac-users."
Alongside DHCP over IPsec for SonicWALL VPN-Gateways, VPN Tracker also supports Client Provisioning via "Mode-Config," used by a variety of VPN-gateway manufacturers like Cisco and Juniper.
Both methods serve to automatically distribute the needed configuration-parameters, such as IP address, DNS-information, etc., from the VPN Gateway to the client. In large VPN implementations, "Client Provisioning" is a must.
equinux is offering the VPN Tracker 4.5 update free to all registered VPN Tracker 4.x users. This update is available at www.equinux.com/vpntracker/download.
Purchases and upgrades from VPN Tracker 3.x can be made at the equinux Online Store - www.equinux.com/store.
