SSL VPN from a Mac to a Sonicwall TZ105 - what is required
Posted on 2013-05-28
I have a client with a small network (10 machines on a 25 Mbps symmetrical fiber connection). The client is Mac based and has requested the ability to VPN in from the outside.
From what I can tell, I believe I can do this with the Sonicwall TZ105 and using the SSL VPN client built into the Mac (OS X 10.8). I'd be using local accounts that I'd store/create on the Sonicwall itself. I'm not a Mac expert, so I'd appreciate the advice of those who have done this before.
Will the Sonicwall TZ105 do what I need? Will it have what I need out of the box? Do I need to add anything extra beyond what's in the box?
The goal of this process is to give access to LAN Mac desktops from users when they are at home.
I'm much more familiar with PPTP VPNs whether they are hosted by a Windows server or another firewall endpoint.
