Status of VIA Mac client?

Hello,

I use VIA on Mac (High Sierra). I have a few questions.

 

1) Is this how things should look? Am I using the latest version? Why isn't the software update working?

2) If there is no update available for the software, is it possible to start/stop the vpn from command line? The current user interface is buggy*, and not accessible without a mouse. (I have a medical condition.)

 

Kind regards,

Tuomas

The software is updated at the controller. The administrator who configures the controller would be able to update the software, which would be pushed to the Mac client.

Thanks for the quick reply!

 

Can you tell whether there is a new version available? Our admin is quite busy, like most are, and I'd rather not waste their time by telling to find credentials somewhere, login to the site and then find that there are no updates since 2016.

 

I cannot access the Downloads section with my credentials.

That version is the latest version from November 2017.  They just have not changed the copyright date.

Okay, thanks. What about starting/stopping the VPN from the command line - is it possible? I don't need exact instructions, even some pointers would help.

That is the answer that I am working on getting.

Re: Status of VIA Mac client?

To see what VPN connections you have available or the status of your connections on the mac, you would type:

 

scutil --nc list

 

To start a VPN connection, you would type:

 

scutil --nc start "name of vpn connection"

 

To stop it, you would type:

 

scutil --nc stop "name of vpn connection"

 

Again, to get status at any time, type:

 

scutil --nc list

 

These commands do not launch the GUI, so outside of using the "scutil --nc list" command, you will not receive any status of it being connected.

 

I hope  that helps.
