Tips for VPN Service Providers
SOME FEATURES DESCRIBED ON THIS PAGE ARE AVAILABLE ONLY IN TUNNELBLICK 3.8.2beta03 AND HIGHER
Tunnelblick has several features that VPN service providers should be aware of:
Automatic Updating of Tunnelblick
Tunnelblick includes a built-in updater, which checks for updates to the program and offers to update it when an update is available.
For security reasons, Tunnelblick must always be installed and updated by a computer administrator.
Automatic Updating of VPN Configurations
Tunnelblick has two separate methods for updating configurations:
Non-administrator Installations and Updates of VPN Configurations
By default, Tunnelblick requires a computer administrator's authorization to install or update VPN configurations, for security reasons.
However, configurations or changes which are not security sensitive may be installed by a standard user (without authorization by a computer administrator) if a computer administrator has previously un-checked the "Require computer administrator authorization to install all configurations" checkbox on the "Preferences" panel of Tunnelblick's "VPN Details" window.
