VPN Monitor IKEv2

Limit your VPN downtime to the absolute minimum!

VPN Monitor IKEv2 is a status bar application to immediately reconnect a dropped IKEv2 VPN connection.  The ‘Always On’ IKEv2 VPN solution for macOS.

Key Features

  • Ability to use ‘fallback’ L2TP/IPSec VPN services should the IKEv2 server become unresponsive
  • Safe network option (standby on whitelisted networks)
  • Temporary disconnect
  • Auto connect at App startup
  • HUD panel with status information
  • Desktop notifications
  • Heartbeat

Note: VPN Monitor IKEv2 will not block outgoing traffic while the VPN connection is down.

►►► Important

VPN Monitor IKEv2 does not include a VPN subscription. You need to know the IKEv2 configuration details from your provider or have a .mobileconfig file available to configure the connection in VPN Monitor.

►►► Operation

The App gets notified of changes in macOS network connection status and immediately takes the required actions. Its efficient connect, reconnect and fallback approach ensures carefree operation. There is no CPU intensive ‘status polling’ involved (as in AppleScripts or other Apps).

►►► Is my IKEv2 account data secure?

It is not possible for an App to start or stop an IKEv2 service it does not ‘own’, hence it is required to enter the IKEv2 account information in VPN Monitor. This information is safely stored in a VPN Profile under ‘System Preferences > Network’ and passwords in the macOS KeyChain. As VPN Monitor does not connect to the internet itself and is a trusted AppStore App, your IKEv2 account data is safe.

►►► What’s the difference with VPN Monitor?

VPN Monitor was released in 2014 and supports macOS 10.9 and upwards. The App will remain available to provide support for older systems, but is unable to reconnect IKEv2 VPN services. VPN Monitor IKEv2 supports macOS 10.11 and upwards and is able to reconnect IKEv2, L2TP and IPSec VPN Services.

Precisely what macOS has needed since the introduction of native IKEv2 VPN support!

Keeps me connected all the time and reconnects quickly if I get dropped from my office VPN. Great tool that’s worth the small price to avoid frustrations and wasted time.
