Hello, I haven an L2TP vpn setup on my mac to connect back to the office, when I use the same configuration settings in windows it wont work ! I think my problem may be with the authentication settings, the mac I just have it set to use our preshared key and a password, in windows it wants to use CHAP or other types of authentication, how do I tell it to just do basic authentication ?
