Fing Doesn't Work on MacBook Pro

I've recently downloaded and installed Fing 2.6.1 and whether I connect my 15" MacBook Pro to WiFi or Ethernet, Fing shows that it's not connected. The MAC address shown doesn't match anything on my Mac listed in ifconfig nor does the IP address match my actual network (10.1.20.x).


Any ideas? Is there a way to select the network interface Fing uses?

thanks,
j.

    Hi @limebreeze, any chance your running a VPN or some sort of virtualization software?

    @Marc Yes, I have a VPN for work configured, but I disabled it so they're not connected. I have Parallels installed on my Mac, but I'm running Fing for Mac directly and not virtualized.

    I have seen Fing have trouble with both scenarios, that's why I asked.  Let's see if anyone from Fing can help you sort this out.  @Robin or @Ciaran, any suggestions?

    It seems like Fing desktop is still picking up network from your VPN. Can you try to run Fing desktop under safe mode or you can check activity monitor if VPN is running and then quit the application and then reboot device and then run Fing desktop again?
