For å sette opp en VPN-forbindelse med Mac OSX:
First, open the System Preferences by going to the Apple menu and choosing “System Preferences.” Or choose “System Preferences” from the Dock.
Next, click on the ‘Network’ system preference.
In the ‘Network’ system preference there is a list of network connections on the left side. Click the ‘+’ icon (hilighted in red) to make a new connection for the VPN.
When you click the ‘+’ icon, a new service sheet appears. Click on the ‘Interface’ popup menu to see the list of choices.
In the list, select ‘VPN’.
The ‘VPN Type’ should automatically be set to ‘L2TP over IPSec’. Click on the “VPN Type” popup menu.
Next, set the Service Name to something sensible by typing into the green box (see below).
If you’ve set the VPN up before, you may see configurations in the list. Be sure to click “Add Configuration…” to add a new configuration (see below).
In the next screen, type a name for the configuration. Then click ‘Create’.
In the green box, enter the IP address of the VPN server you have received from PowerTech as the ‘Server Address.’
In the blue box, enter your username as the ‘Account Name.’
Then, click on the ‘Authentication Settings…’ button. A new sheet drops down.
In the blue box, enter your password.
Next, we’ll need to adjust some of the advanced VPN settings. To do that, first click the ‘Advanced…” button. See the screen below for its location (it’s hilighted in red).
For the VPN to work effectively, the “Send all traffic over VPN connection” checkbox should be marked. In the screen below, it’s hilighted in green. Make sure the checkbox is checked.
Optionally, check the “Use verbose logging” option, hilighted in blue. That will make it easier to see what’s happening if you are having connection problems.
When you’re done checking the options, click the “OK” button.
If your company uses internal DNS-servers, click the DNS tab and enter the IP address(es) of your DNS-server(s).
To actually save the configuration, click the ‘Apply’ button in the bottom right of the window.
Now when you want to connect to the VPN, you can either choose the VPN configuration from the VPN menu or select your VPN connection in the connection list and click the “Connect” button (see below).
