    Hi all,

    OSX: VPN Connection PPTP or IPSEC?

    Can someone clarify what OSX VPN communication or protocol is being used? When I create a VPN connection via Internet Connect, I see only PPTP, and the port is also added…But what about IPSec? Is this supported?

    I am trying to connect to my Network via VPN but we are using SonicWall and IPSec…

    Any suggestions?



    Jaguar supports PPTP through the Internet Connect GUI.

    Panther supports PPTP and L2TP/IPSec through the GUI. (Unfortunately, there’s no support for concentrators like the Cisco 3000 series; you still need to use the Cisco client.)

    I hope that Apple will merge VPN functionality with the loginwindow at some point. We use the same accounts, and I would like users to get a VPN connection first, and then authenticate to our Kerberos/OpenLDAP environment second, even when remote.
