Shimo is an easy-to-manage hub for people who work with multiple VPNs. This app gives you complete control over when and how you connect to each network. CiscoVPN, AnyConnect, IPSec, OpenVPN, PPTP/L2TP, Nortel and even SSH connections are no problem for Shimo. It caches your VPN accounts and passwords, supports triggers that connect you to or disconnect you from specific networks under selected conditions, and lets you configure notifications so that you’re always up to speed with your VPN status.
Here’s how to set up Shimo with your favorite networks.
Once you start using the app, you’ll need to configure it with your preferred VPN accounts:
The app lets you set up conditions that trigger VPN connections:
It can be easy to forget which network you’re connected to, but the app eliminates this problem with its notification manager. You can configure alerts that let you know about changes in your network connection. In the “Events” tab, use the drop-down menu at the bottom of the window to toggle between preset combinations of audio, visual, and message alerts.
If you’d like more control, you can click individual icons to turn them on and off for different situations. In this section, a green checkmark means that a feature is active.
Shimo takes the hassle out of managing multiple VPNs with common-sense automation and tailored notifications. With it, total control over your network connections is as close as the menu bar. Feel free to get Shimo in Setapp.
