Connecting within the US it seems to do its job well. But it fails to establish a proper connection from extremely remote destinations.

Does the job, but not internationally
Closing the window confuses novice users
Annoying bug: if you close the connection window, and later want to bring it back up but haven’t fully quit the app, you need to go to the Window menu and click Bring All to Front. If the main window is closed, and someone clicks on the Dock icon to bring it back up, it should automatically re-open the window. Confusing 10+ novice users in a small office, I’m getting phone calls daily because of this.
Can’t add a connection
Running version 4.0.3 on OS X 10.10.5 I can’t add a connection. Useless as is.
It used to work with secondary authentication, that no longer works. It states that it doesn’t work with iOS so it is clearly confused. We are probably going to start scrapping all out client SonicWALLs anyway since their support has gone down-hill in the past couple of years.
Does not work on OS X El Capitan
It worked great on OS X yosemite but after I upgraded to El Capitan, it stopped working. I am not able to connect to my VPN for work. It connects and immediately disconnects.
Introduces hundreds of miliseconds of latency vs alternative VPN connection product, making it almost useless. In this case when used on Mac OS 10.11.3 .

If you forget to shut this guy off below heading in the office beware! It jsut spools and spools until it has eaten all your RAM and starts in on your hard drive. Not only do you have to force quit the app but also the service NEAGENT. I was left with a machine that believed it only had 1 gb of space left when it really had 100. It amazes me that a bug like this can make it into the wild and for so long! It has been this way for almost a year now. Outside of that it works pretty well away from the office. I would say it connects but isn’t really connected about 25% of the time on the first attempt but disconnecting and reconnecting clears it up and from there the connection rarely drops even of the worst of hotel wifi. If not for that crazy bug I could easily give it 4/5.
