How do I make my login credentials (perfect privacy user name and password) automatically fill out when I connect to a new location? When I connect to a new location in Tunnelblick, I get asked for them.

You should have a checkbox when entering the credentials for the first time - this has to be checked once for every location you connect to.

Thank you, I have another question regarding Tunnelblick with obfsproxy. I am at the last step of installation; running
sudo obfsproxy obfs3 socks 127.0.0.1:LOCAL_PORT. I get a syntax error with port 990.

SyntaxError: invalid syntax

X-MacBook:~ X$ sudo obfsproxy obfs3 socks 127.0.0.1:990

Traceback (most recent call last):

File "/usr/local/bin/obfsproxy", line 7, in <module>

from obfsproxy.pyobfsproxy import run

File "/usr/local/lib/python3.6/site-packages/obfsproxy/pyobfsproxy.py", line 183

except ValueError, err:

^

SyntaxError: invalid syntax

X-MacBook:~ X$

How can I fix this?

What MacOS version are you running?

Possibly this is an issue with Python 3.x - our Mac developer will try to reproduce this problem

We found the problem. Obfsproxy currently does not work with Python3 (only Python2).

Try the following:

pip3 uninstall obfsproxy
brew install python2
pip2 install obfsproxy
