iVPN is a GUI for Mac OS X's built-in PPTP and L2TP VPN servers. This VPN server is usually only available on Mac OS X Server and configured through the Server Admin application. iVPN makes it possible to use the same server utility on the client version of Mac OS X.
All you have to do to set it up is to enter the user name and password that you want your VPN clients to use, the IP address range you want to give to your clients and then click start server. iVPN will handle all the other settings and start the VPN server.
This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com. This piece of software is absolute great!
I've tried a couple of freeware VPN server SW's for OSX over the past days and I've not goteven one proper to work.
Then I payed for iVPN, installed and configured it in less then 5 minutes.
I would better call iVPN cheap payware then shareware as you indeed have to pay upfront you can use/try iVPN. But the quality and easy handling of this program makes it worth to pay 15GBP for it.
This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com. Many tools let me use OS X client as though it was a proper server. Webmin does a pretty decent job on the cheap, but iVPN lets you do the one thing I needed to do that I could not figure out through other tools: run a cheap VPN server. I didn't want to go the route of a DD-WRT router for serving up a VPN, and this program does exactly what I needed it to do.
For the record, the price is Ã‚Â£15, not $15. However, it is well worth the money. Works perfectly.
