Mac OS X Lion to Watchguard via VPN

I am trying to connect an Apple laptop running Lion to a Watchguard router via Mobile User VPN. Our Windows PCs use version 10.22, I can not find version 10.22 on Watchguard's downloads site, earliest version they have is 11.4 I think. We will not be upgrading our router so using the latest version may not be working with our older firmware on the router.

I am not as familiar with VPN options for Mac. Any suggestions?

I tried IPSecuritas and it doesn't run well at all on the Mac, basically freezes every time I try to start it up and configure it. Can't even get past naming the connection name.

Have you tried Lion's built-in VPN client?

Yes, it says my L2TP server is not responding.

I'm a noob when it comes to more in depth details about macs, I appreciate your help!

Then try to download and run OpenVPN:

Do you use it with Tunnelblick? And I assume that I must download and compile openvpn for mac?

You don't need to download OpenVPN separately. Tunnelblick contains it.
