OS X has a built in PPTP client. http://www.bol.ucla.edu/services/vpn/pptp/docs/macosx.html#leopardpp

  • +1 No need to add another when the built-in one does the job just fine. – John Gardeniers Jul 23 '09 at 23:13

I use Shimo, which is really simplifies the VPN management process. Macworld did a pretty good write up on the application in Aug of '07, but much of the article is still relevent: http://www.macworld.com/article/59355/2007/08/shimo.html It does nag you asking you to license it, but the application is fully featured even if you don't license it and you can easily minimize the nag window.

  • Thank you, but built in solved my needs. – Zote May 5 '09 at 14:48

Not Free, but only $9 - Viscosity VPN www.viscosityvpn.com Supports only 10.5 or later.


There is an interesting alternative to the builtin: JollyFastVNC

    OP was asking about a VPN client, not a VNC client :) – saschabeaumont May 6 '09 at 1:18
