macOS Performance Improvement
With this release, the enableMacPerformance feature flag can be enabled on macOS Netskope Client to improve performance significantly. This flag is enabled by default and the Client uses VIF on macOS as part of this improvement.
To disable this flag, contact your Sales Representative or Netskope Support.
While working on this enhancement “enableMacPerformance”, Netskope observed an interoperability issue with Cisco Anyconnect in full-tunnel mode. To address the same, when the Client tunnel is established, a probe process starts within three seconds to detect AnyConnect full tunnel mode. The Client switches to lwip (method prior to enableMacPerformance flag) if the probe is unsuccessful and generates a “tunnel down due to error” event. If this occurs, the Client might disconnect and reconnect intermittently for 10-20 seconds. As a workaround, Netskope recommends adding the macOS Client VIF IP range (100.127.100.0/24) to Cisco AnyConnect split tunnel exclusion range. To learn more on AnyConnect interop, Cisco AnyConnect
This behavior change exists only for macOS devices.
