Mac OS X agent VPN client incompatibility

Updated 5 months ago by admin

The Mac OS X agent uses a SOCKS proxy to intercept traffic from applications running on the Mac. Under Mac OS X, a VPN network adaptor is able to tunnel the traffic and therefore bypass the SOCKS proxy even if it is set globally in network preferences. The following VPN applications are known to cause this behaviour:

  • Cisco AnyConnect
  • Bitdefender VPN
  • FortiClient SSL VPN

How did we do?
