Why VPN client Shimo cannot load?

Asked By 10 points N/A Posted on -

As a VPN client on my MAC I am currently using Shimo. But recently i am getting the following error message. Please help me get rid of this problem.

Error message: Shimo could not load its tun/tap kernel extensions, which are required by the used VPN protocol. Maybe you have some other VPN software running.

Which uses the similar kernel extension?

Hello Azreil,

That error you are getting may be occurring because a Viscosity kernel extension on your computer is conflicting with Shimo, and therefore you will need to fix it using the following procedure:

1. From the Terminal, you will need to run the following command: kextstat.

2. After that you will need to scroll down the list and look for anything that is VPN related and has got nothing to do with Shimo. One of such is the com.viscosityvpn.Viscosity.tun.

3. You will need to go back in the terminal and the enter the following command: sudo kextunload -b com.viscosityvpn.Viscosity.tun.

After that you should not get the issue again.
