For Mac Os users
We advise Mac OS X users to change network settings and restart.
Go to: System Preferences > Network > Advanced > Configure IPv6 > change from Automatically to Link-local only
That change makes VPN more effective.To connect to Access Server from a MacOSX client computer, you need to follow these steps:
- Download and install an OpenVPN client for MacOSX
- Log in to the Access Server’s Client Web Server and download the appropriate client config file (typically called “client.ovpn”)
- Run the OpenVPN client with the downloaded client config file
A popular OpenVPN client for Mac OS X is Tunnelblick. It can be obtained for free from http://code.google.com/p/tunnelblick/.
Follow these basic steps to use Tunnelblick with OpenVPN Access Server:
- Download the Tunnelblick_version.dmg file from http://code.google.com/p/tunnelblick/.
- Open the downloaded disk image file (which mounts the disk image).
- Drag the Tunnelblick icon (may be labeled “Tunnelblick.app”) to your Applications folder.
- After logging in to the Access Server’s Client Web Server, download the client.ovpn file and place it in the ~/Library/Application Support/Tunnelblick/Configurations folder on the Mac.
- In new systems if you can’t find the folder just double click on client.ovpn.
- Run Tunnelblick by double-clicking its icon in the Applications folder.
The first time Tunnelblick is run on a given Mac, it will ask the user for the user’s password (on the Mac system). This is because Tunnelblick must have root privileges to run, as it modifies network settings as part of connecting to the VPN.
