You can't. The client is a Windows only product.

You could, however, use a TELE3 or one of the other low cost units SonicWALL offers. It's not nearly as cheap as the software client, but with a Mac, hardware is the only option.

jeffkearns is not correct.........Sonicwall will only support their own vpn client, which is windows only, but they recommend 3rd party clients:

Two items from the SonicWall KB:

1)  "PGP 7.2 VPN client is the only classic Mac OS (v9.2.2 and earlier) VPN product known to work with the SonicWall. That product was discontined in late 2001 by McAfee but is now being sold once again (see PGP link below)."

The PGP link is: http://www.pgp.com/

You can also find this client at: http://www.versiontracker.com/dyn/moreinfo/macos/3429&vid=3433


2)  "Equinux makes an IPSec VPN client software for Mac OS 10.2 or greater.  PGP has plans to support Macintosh OS 10.2 and later when they release their PGP 8.0 software."

The Equinux link is:  http://www.equinux.com

Alkens,

You need to close the question yourself:

However, I don't deserve any points (unless you plan on using the hardware solution). Please give all the points to JConchie.
