Hi there,

Could someone advise on how to set up a properly encrypted VPN on our Windows domain that works for Mac clients as well?

Currently we have SSTP and PPTP possibilities, but Apple and Linux computers don't play well with the SSTP so we have to use PPTP in these scenarios, which I hear is not very secure.

Is there a 3rd party application that can properly secure our domain for VPN access for all these client types? It must be user friendly.

Many thanks

Hi

IMHO you should look at an appliance like Cisco ASA.

For me Cisco VPN solutions work very well with e.g. Apple clients.

Sonicwall SSL-VPN is basically vendor-neutral and there are Sonicwall NetExtender Clients for Windows, Mac, Linux, Android and iOS (iPhone/iPod) available for free with your mysonicwall.com account

As an alternative you can setup L2TP VPN on the Sonicwall which is compatible with the built-in mac OS X L2TP VPN client connection

If you must use IPsec (Global) VPN then you could purchase the VPN Tracker client for Mac OS X which works with the IPsec VPN on Sonicwall.
