Mac client with a SonicWall TZ170

Medium Priority
Last Modified: 2008-01-09
I have a sonicwall TZ170 with 50 vpn licenses.  Windows clients download the sonicwall global vpn client and works great.  Now today one user with a MAC calls me.  He has a new Apple laptop with a MAC OS.  I have not found a way to download a client.  Is there any way to have this user connect via vpn.  Can I setup another protocol in the Sonicwall to make this work.  Can I foward PPTP to the correct server.  Any help is appreciated.

VPN Tracker might be a solution for you:


Alternatively, if you forward PPTP and GRE to a separate VPN server, you should be able to get the mac to connect simply using the built in VPN clients.
