Had trouble getting it to work in 10.8, until I turned off the firewall. Adding "raccoon" to the allowed-applications list didn't seem to work, but turning off the firewall entirely did.

The 3.5 release candidate available here:
Appears to be compatibility with Mountain Lion (10.8) when the system is upgraded from Lion to Mountain Lion.

works only with deactivated firewall. If i activate firewall (allow raccoon connections) I didn't reach the server.
Version 3.5rc

Turning the firewall off all the way is not really an option. Is there anything in particular that can be enabled to allow connections to go through?

IPSecuritas 3.4 not work in my iMac with clean installed Mountain Lion 10.8. I also tried this 3.5rc and it not work. Firewall is off.

P.S. In my old iMac with Snow Leopard was later upgraded to Lion, IPSecuritas it worked very well.

Doesn't work for me on 10.8.1 upgrade from Lion. Get the spinning beach ball on launch. Have to force quit. I've tried with firewall on and off- makes no difference.

I discovered that you can enable the firewall, as long as you turn off Stealth Mode under Firewall Options. This mode blocks ICMP, and IPSecuritasDaemon needs to be able to use this protocol.

Not working on my MacBook Pro 10.8.2. The app beachballs and activity monitor shows it as "Not Responding". Sometimes the uninstaller hangs also. Once I got the app to work long enough to configure it but then it hung after reboot. The IPSecuritasMenu.app shows up as a login item but it does not start. It does not appear on the menu bar.

3.5 RC works fine for me. Fresh install. (imported settings of 10.6.8 for ipsecuritas)
3.4 didn't work under 10.8.

I wasn't able to add connections to the default profile. They were imported but I couldn't use them. After a restart there was only a blank list item left of them, even after uninstall-reinstall. Creating a second profile and importing the connections there has worked, though.
