This document explains the procedure to use the MAC operating system's default VPN client to setup a PPTP connection over VPN Tunnel for a VPN Client Access. Suppose if there are two sites Site A and Site B. Both have a VPN Tunnel established between them. Both use the same RV220W device. A client user credential with username and password is set on Site B. Then the document explains the procedure to access Site B from Site A over the Tunnel in the MAC OS environment.
I haven’t yet installed the Sierra preview, but I doubt you’ll need a 3rd-party PPTP client, because PPTP is built-in to OS X 10.11, and probably Sierra, too. Here’s how to access it: 1. Open System Preferences, and click Network. Once connected you can go to IPLocation.net to check on your new vpn secured IP address. To disconnect your Mac OS X client from our OpenVPN server, just click on the the Tunnelblick icon and select Disconnect. Shimo is the first VPN client for Mac, which just works and which is very easy to use. Also, it is a savior, because it supports PPTP VPN on macOS Sierra, High Sierra and Mojave, in contrast to Apple’s built-in VPN client. CEO, tamyca GmbH. It supports PPTP, L2TP, OpenVPN, SSH, and a few more. I even found I can connect to some L2TP server with Shimo while I cannot connect with the built-in OS X VPN client. The price is a bit expensive, but it works pretty well for me, so I paid for it. I guess they might have some sales boost as the new OS.
