Mac Sierra Client For Pptp Vpn

Some time ago, Apple stopped the support for its built-in PPTP VPN client on Mac (macOS Sierra 10.12.). This isn't a reason to replace your entire network infrastructure, because you are still able to establish a secure PPTP VPN connection with Shimo. The following instruction shows you how to connect to PPTP VPN in macOS Sierra 10.12, High Sierra 10.13 and Mojave 10.14 using our VPN client Shimo.

Mac Sierra Client For Pptp Vpn

Just paid $55 for Shimo 4. It works. A google search for Shimo 4 VPN will guide your to the correct link. It supports PPTP, L2TP, OpenVPN, SSH, and a few more. I even found I can connect to some L2TP server with Shimo while I cannot connect with the built-in OS X VPN client. The price is a bit expensive, but it works pretty well for me, so I paid for it. I guess they might have some sales boost as the new OS X rolled out.

Likewise, passwords are often not sufficient to introduce security to a system. If your connection requires certificates or one-time passcode tokens, such as RSA SecurID, our VPN client for Mac provides the necessary toolset through Extended Authentication (XAUTH).

There is no other VPN client for Mac which supports this variety of available protocols. If you want to have the all-in-one solution for your secure connections, Shimo is technology of choice. This feature is not only helpful, if you have to handle different types of connections, but rather in cases where your system administrator upgrades or changes the used protocol. With Shimo you are always prepared and ready to go.

But especially the support of modern two-factor authentication methods, such as Tokens (e.g. RSA SecurID, Symantec VIP), keeps Shimo on the highest possible standard regarding data security. Thus, Shimo is the top choice when looking for the most secure VPN client for Mac.

One day I need to connect my macOS to a network of client of the company I work for via Point-to-Point Tunneling Protocol (PPTP) VPN. Unfortunately Apple removed PPTP support on macOS Sierra, so I had to find an alternative for that. Some of them I found are third parties application that need a one time buying or annual subscription. In fact, Apple just remove the user interface option for PPTP VPN, meanwhile the libraries of it are still available on Sierre.

Thankfully guys at Apple removed only the GUI part of the PPTP client, and you still can use the pppd daemon throught Terminal. But before that you'll have to create a configuration first:sudo nano /etc/ppp/peers/
