    VPN Tracker 8 is now available for OS X 10.10 Yosemite and OS X 10.9 Mavericks. You can find upgrade information on the VPN Tracker website. If you would like to try VPN Tracker 8, simply select "Demo" after upgrading.

    New Look on OS X 10.10 Yosemite
    VPN Tracker 8 takes advantage of OS X Yosemite, with a fresh new design that incorporates Yosemite's translucency effects.

    Improved Status View
    The new Status View clearly reflects what VPN Tracker is doing at each step. It even displays the most current log message right at the top, and takes you to the log if necessary. The Status View now has additional actions such as finding your Mac%u2019s IP address and taking you straight to your Mac%u2019s network settings.

    Traffic Control
    VPN Tracker 8 gives you even more control over your VPN. Don%u2019t want to send traffic to certain IP address or subnets over VPN? Simply exclude them! Have a Host to Everywhere VPN but only need to some addresses over VPN? Tell VPN Tracker to only send traffic to those IPs over VPN. And even if you%u2019re stuck in a situation where the local network uses the same subnet as the remote network there%u2019s a solution...

    Force Traffic for the Local Subnet through VPN
    If you end up in a situation where the local network is the same as the remote network of your VPN, VPN Tracker 8 can try to help you out by forcing non-essential local network traffic over the VPN.

    VPN Engine Updated for OS X Yosemite
    VPN Tracker%u2019s engine has been updated to work smoothly with the changes in OS X Yosemite.

    Lower Energy Usage
    Use your VPN all day long, even on battery power. VPN Tracker 8 uses significantly less energy than previous versions of VPN Tracker.

    Streamlined Help and Log
    VPN Tracker has always been well-known for its unrivaled ease of use. For VPN Tracker 8, we%u2019ve made it even easier to find just the information you need to quickly resolve common configuration errors.

    Quick Install
    Individual VPN Tracker users can now install VPN Tracker more quickly, without having to go through the steps of an installer.

    Enterprise Installer
    If you are deploying VPN Tracker in your organization, VPN Tracker 8 also ships as an enterprise installer that easily integrates with popular software rollout solutions.

Once tested, VPN Tracker will automatically use the preferred method for this and all future VPN connections.
    • End your session right - Use the "End Session" button to automatically quit applications, disconnect servers and close databases before the VPN is disconnected. This means that there is no more risk of data loss or errors from Finder, FileMaker or any other app when disconnecting.

    • Exporting is now more fun - VPN Tracker remembers your VPN connection's export settings. The next time you export, you don't have to configure anything. This speeds up large-scale deployments and makes configuration changes as fast as it takes to click a button.
    • Exports made easy - In VPN Tracker 6, exporting connections finally got the space it deserved. That's why you'll now find all your export settings clearly arranged in the new Export tab.
