If you see the error message below when you attempt to connect to the VPN, you may need to install Rosetta on your computer first. Once Rosetta has been installed, you will be able to connect without any issues.

See this Apple article for more information about how to install Rosetta.


Open the Terminal on your Mac.

To open Terminal, click the Launchpad icon in the Dock, and select Terminal.

Copy and paste the following command into the Terminal, and press Enter.

softwareupdate –install-rosetta –agree-to-license

The Terminal should notify you that the install of Rosetta 2 finished successfully.

Before attempting to connect, you will need to generate a new VPN key for your computer.
After regenerating your VPN key, try connecting to our servers again.

See our support article for more info on how to regenerate your VPN key.
