OS X VPN

I was trying to connect to an IPSec VPN server today, and when I went in to configure the built in client I could only find PPTP. Everything said there should be an option under VPN in Internet Connect, but mine said “VPN (PPTP)” same with in the Network Preference Pane.

If you’re having this problem, go into “System Preferences” -> “Network” -> “Show: Network Port Configurations” and delete the “VPN (PPTP)” configuration. After that, you should be able to see L2TP over IPSec in Internet Connect.
