I would like to connect Mac OS X (Lion) with Windows Server 2008 (R2) using IPSec natively. Simplest possible settings: No certificates, no tools, no specials. Just a Windows Server with IPSec "Pre-Shared Key" Authentication. Looks like an easy job, but after weeks of research I still have no success.
Attached there's a screenshot of the Windows settings. It works perfect with Windows clients, it doesn't matter which version. The whole rule is based on a 1to1-connection, that means the client is connecting (behind a NAT) to the Server (internet-facing). There are no server hardware/network-firewalls, it's just plain simple:
CLIENT -> NAT-Router -> "The Internet" -> Windows Server
But whatever I tried in OSX (Leopard, Snow Leopard, Lion) - no succes. Tried tools like IPSecuritas - no success.
I could provide details about the IPSec error logs (handshake-issues) but first I thought I just ask - I can't imagine I am the only in the world connecting OSX->Windows with plain simple IPSec...
