    1. Click on APPLE > System Preferences
    2. Network
    3. ADD a new network connection
    4. Choose VPN as the type
    5. Choose the VPN type (get this from the network administrator)
    6. Save the Connection

    In the settings:

    server address = remote IP address for the VPN entry point (get this from the network administrator)
    account name = username (windows will require: username@domain or domain\username) - Confirm the exact format enforced by the network admin)
    encryption - (get this from the network administrator)

    Save & Connect :)
