Im looking for recommendations on 3rd party software for a Mac, to allow a PPTP VPN connection.

 

 

 

Yes, I know its not secure etc etc, but thats not my department, so please dont start down that path :)

 

 

 

TIA

It supports PPTP natively doesn't it?  Or was that deprecated in recent versions?

 

Used to be you could just go to System Prefs > Network > and click + to add a new connection, selecting VPN and then add the details.

Had a look, its built on OpenVPN which dosent support PPTP either.   "OpenVPN is not compatible with IPSec, IKE, PPTP, or L2TP."

 

Next.... :)

I have a client using this for PPTP connections - its a paid product but there is a free trail to see if it works.

My work has shifted to Fortinet Client for the Mac, they have locked the config so I can not tell if it is PPTP or some other proprietary VPN protocol.

Fortinet is SSL or IPSec  - use that elsewhere ;)
