Advanced VPN Client improvements 4.10 Rel Build 39753
- Biometric authentication
(e.g. fingerprint- or face recognition) before VPN connection establishment. For protection against a VPN connection establishment by unauthorized third parties a biometric authentication has been added to the Advanced VPN Client. Immediately after pressing the “Connect” button in the client GUI there is a prompt for user authentication. The VPN connection is only established after a positive authentication. The Windows Hello functionality is required for biometric authentication, which is available as from Windows 8.1 or later.
- Modernized client GUI
The client GUI and the tray popup window which is started from the taskbar have been adopted to the current Windows 10 design.
- Complete 64 bit implementation of the Advanced VPN Client
As from this version, all components of the Advanced VPN Client are included in 64-bit versions.
- New GUI for the credential provider, including the Hotspot authentication functionality.
For establishing the VPN tunnel prior to the Windows user authentication, it is now possible to do a Hotspot authentication on a re-designed GUI.
Bug-fixes / improvements
- Configuration of the VPN tunnel endpoint.
Multiple VPN tunnel endpoints can now be configured using their domain names.
- Optimization of the DPD functionality
When installing from scratch or changing an existing configuration the FIPS mode can be enabled or disabled from within the installation routine.
- Display of IPv6 connection information
IPv6 addresses are now displayed on the connection information page, too.
- Enhancements within the Client Info Center
A new section with driver information has been added to the Client Info Center. For Windows 10 operating systems, driver version- and build number are now additionally displayed.
