Tunnelblick is a user-friendly and unobtrusive Mac OS X application that enables you to take control over the OpenVPN client and server connections from within a simple and clean interface.

Complete VPN package

The standalone application comes with all the necessary binaries and drivers, including OpenVP, tun/tap drivers and easy-rsa. Hence, you are not required to install any additional binaries or drivers. To start using Tunnelblick you just need to add your configuration and encryption information.

It is worth mentioning that you also need access to a VPN server since your Mac is at one end of the tunnel and the VPN server is at the other end.

Intuitive user interface

By accessing Tunnelblick’s status bar menu, you can easily view all active connections, disconnect or connect to the desired network, add a new VPN, quit the app and open Tunnelblick’s main window. The great thing about Tunnelblick is that you can install OpenVPN or Tunnelblick VPN configuration files with just a few mouse clicks.

The Configurations tab helps you view all existing configurations, check their log and change their settings. Additionally, you can connect or disconnect from a server and copy the log to your Mac’s clipboard.

Handy Notification system

What is more, Tunnelblick is capable to use sound notifications when the connection is established or when the connects is interrupted. From the Preferences tab you can reassign the keyboard shortcut, set the maximum log display size and check for updates.

Thanks to the Appearance tab, you can switch between the standard and the monochrome status bar icon and place it next to the Spotlight icon. You can also choose when the notification window should be displayed and the type of information that should contain.

Powerful built-in utilities

The Utilities tab helps you quit all OpenVPN processes, copy the console log to clipboard and open easy-rsa in a Terminal window.
