VIA client for Mac - Mountain Lion support?

As a delighted user of the Aruba VIA client for Mac OS X,  I wanted to ask if there is a version available or in development that supports Mountain Lion (Mac OS 10.8)?   My initial testing shows the VIA 1.0.0.2 client installs on  Mountain Lion Developer preview 4, but doesn't appear to work .. the connect button in the VIA control panel is greyed out. Mountain Lion is due out next month, and we'd dearly love to have a VIA client that will work with it.

 

Many Thanks!

Mountain Lion is GA and VIA version 1.0.0.2.32566 doesn't seem to be able to detect the network type and the "connect" button remains grayed out.

Same here.  Anybody know when we'll see a release that works on Mountain Lion?

Try this:

 

1.       Install Mac VIA 1.X.

2.       Open command shell.

3.       Run “sudo /Application/System\ Preferences.app/Content/MacOS/System\ Preference”  

4.       Download VIA configuration.

5.       Start VPN connection using VIA UI connect button or Network connection menu.

Sorry some syntactical errors in previous post...

 

try this

 

open command prompt,

 

then

 

cd /Applications

cd System\ Preferences.app

cd Contents/MacOS

then

sudo ./System\ Preferences

 

Then Launch VIA from control panel that appears (since you're now SU, it will write profiles correctly).

 

I'm on a MAC book air running 10.8.2 and now working correctly...

Also on Macbook Air, 10.8.2 - it's working.

However I get a lot of strange messages when taking the computer out of sleep and it's reconnecting to a wifi network - even when the VPN connection is OFF!

See attached picture (below) of error message, and of log messages in Aruba VIA. These messages appear even though I am disconnected (I have not connected, either from the VIA prefpane or the Network one).

 

While it works, these log/error messages are very irritating.

 

[Edit: added version number of client] VIA Version 1.0.0.3.35402

What version of VIA?  You probably need to open a TAC case so that they can get your logs....
