IPsec VPN with Native OS X Client (Video)

In this video, you will learn how to set up IPsec VPN between a FortiGate and a MAC using the default MAC client.

This VPN configuration allows Mac users to securely access an internal network, and browse the Internet through the VPN tunnel. This configuration uses a pre-shared key but other authentication options are also supported. This video assumes that you have already created a user group called “mac_ users” and an Internal firewall address. You should also define the IP range for mac users and ensure that no other interfaces on the FortiGate use this range to avoid subnet overlaps.

We are using OS X Yosemite version 10.10.2.
