Mac 10.6 native VPN client



  • Greetings. I am interested in using pfsense, largely because I want to route remote browsing when on the road through my home ISP connection via VPN.
    Am I able to utilise the built in Snow Leopard VPN client (preferably IPsec) to do this, or do I need to use a third party client to achieve this?
    Thanks in advance, and apologies if this has been addressed previously - I did search.

    You'd probably be better off using an OpenVPN client like Viscosity or Tunnelblick, though I don't have a Mac so I can't say for sure what the current best option is.



  • There will be a manual to set up ipsec with an iPhone and pfsense 2.0 soon, I hope. In the meantime, your best option is using OpenVPN with the OpenVPN export wizard package and Viscosity as OpenVPN client on OS X, as it works flawlessly.
