Sonicwall Mobile connect with MacOS Monterey


I've come across a couple of users who have upgraded their Mac Software to to MacOS Monterey and since doing this the sonicwall mobile connect application fails to connect.

I was wondering if anyone else has seen this issue and has a fix?

    Hi @jodybrookes

    After the MacOS upgrade, did you try to reinstall the Sonicwall mobile connect? if its not try and let us know the status.

    Hi. I've also had this issue - Mobile Connect doesn't connect since I've updated to Monterey. I reinstalled but it's still not working. I have attached my log. Is there anything else I can try?



  • Hi,

    I'm still have this issue at the moment. I have a case open with sonicwall (43817940) about this. Both users who have this issue have tried re-installing mobile connect and was also asked to disable TLS 1.3, 1.1 and 1.0 on the SMA device but this has not worked.

    I think maybe there's a compatibility issue with the current version of mobile connect and MacOS Monterey and sonicwall need to fix and update mobile connect for this issue.

  • Hi,

    Any update on this issue? We also have a Monterey client who can no longer use the latest Mobile Connect client after the OSX update. The Mobile Connect client has been reinstalled.

    Thank you.

  • Hi @envisionitworks

    I've had the below reply from sonicwall. I haven't had a chance to try this with my users as need to get hold of them. You could try this and let us know here if it helped.

    Can you please have the user try disabling Private Relay (System Preferences > Apple ID > iCloud > Private Relay).

    macOS Monterey comes with a new feature called Private Relay which routes traffic through an Apple relay so your Mac has different IP address as seen from the WAN side. The aim of this is to protect your privacy. However, VPN services can be confused by the changing IP addresses.

    @jodybrookes I'm a South African user where Private Relay is not even available and I'm also running into the same issues with not being able to connect since the Monterey update.
