BolehVPN and Mountain Lion 10.8

Mountain Lion 10.8 is released today! Before you upgrade, you may wish to note that there is a known bug of the interoperability of BolehVPN with Mountain Lion which in most cases can be fixed manually. Just requires a bit more fiddling until an official fix is released.

The fix is a two step process

a) Uninstall your old version of Tunnelblick and install it with the new beta version of Tunnelblick

b) If you can connect to Tunnelblick but do not have internet, follow the steps here.

Our BolehVPN Mac installation guide has been updated.

Also for those of you who are using our beta BolehVPN Mac-GUI, this is not compatible with Mountain Lion 10.8 yet and we’re working on a fix!

    Thank you for posting the fix.
    Please note that Beta 16 DOES NOT WORK, so stick with 12.

    Connects, and immediately disconnects and starts to connect again, over and over again.

      That may be a problem with OpenVPN 2.3-alpha1.

      So try OpenVPN 2.2.1 by clicking the Tunnelblick icon, clicking “VPN Details…”, clicking the “Preferences” tab, and then selecting “2.2.1 from the “OpenVPN version” drop down list.

      See if that helps?

    Beta 16 works. The reason you’re getting frequent disconnection is due to it’s keep monitoring your DNS. Go to VPN details and UNCHECKED “Monitor Network Settings” and reconnect. It should be fine.

    So, with Beta 16, Monitor Network Setting UNCHECKED, the connection loop issue is gone, but now there is a DNS issue, so no web.
    I did go to the 2.2.1 version on OpenVPN but same issue.
    Am going back to Beta 12.

    hi in2insight, On the Details window, click on Settings. Now you should see the Set DNS/WINS option, please ensure this is set to Set nameserver and then re-connect. If that does not work, please set it to nameserver (3.0b10) and re-connect.

    Failing that, please go to your Mac network settings, select your network (Wifi etc), click advanced and choose DNS. Click on the + sign and add the following DNS value:

    Try reconnect and let me know how you get on?

    Hi Chris,

    I did set the nameserver to 3.0b10 and now have both connection and able to surf, using beta 16.
