    Tunnelblick's latest beta works fine for 10.10.

    I've been running it for weeks without issue.

    Cloak works fine for me on DP4.

    I'm also using WiTopia but with the latest Viscosity client 1.4.10 and configured the access points manually.

    It's not working for me, and by their own support site's comments, it's not supposed to work in Yosemite yet.

    https://support.privateinternetacce...can-i-use-your-service-with-osx-1010-yosemite

    ----------

    Do you have a beta client from them or something, because according to their support site, it doesn't work. And my experience is the app loads, but then when I try to connect to the vpn through their app, websites and data just doesn't flow. Suggestions?

    I'm talking about the PrivateInternetAccess software. Why should I have to pay for a service that comes with software, then have to pay for another piece of software to use what I already pay for?

    The OP asked for VPN clients in general, and Tunnelblick is free.

    Understood, the couple of responses seemed to indicate that myprivateinternet worked just fine without extra steps.

    tried tunnelblick and in OSX Yosemite it won't import the privateinternetaccess config scripts... when i try to open them it does nothing :-(

    i travel to china\overseas a lot, so if I can't get privateinternetaccess to work on 10.10, I'm going to have to go back to 10.9 :-(

    Kinda solved my own issue. I forgot that OSX comes with a native VPN client. I configured it using the PrivateInternetAccess settings and it works like a charm :)

    Is there a downside here?

    All I can tell you is Private Internet Access works flawlessly on my iMac and MacBook Air since installing Yosemite. Haven't done anything special to make it work.

    Sorry if I'm skeptical of your claims given they even say it's not working with their app.

    Witopia's app crashes on launch. I'll have to try it with Viscosity.

    I'm still confused.. why use a third party VPN client when OSX has one built in?

    VPN services usually offer both OpenVPN and PPTP services.

    PPTP has known vulnerabilities, so OpenVPN is often the preferred protocol. The OS X client however does not support OpenVPN, so a third party client is required.

    The PIA client doesn't work for me with Firefox or Safari but strangely works fine with Chrome (which I never use). I emailed support and their reply said they wouldn't release an update that supports 10.10 until it is officially released.

    Kinda defeats the purpose of betas.

    Private internet Access didn't work for me until the current Yosemite release. Works fine now and very fast.
