Wait a minute

Hey,

I don't think you understand the importance of having an OS X vpn client.

Many, many people telecommute, for these folks Mac OS X hasn't been a real option because there was no way to access their work network.

FTP not only isn't a solution, it isn't secure either. Your passwords and usernames are transmitted in the clear, where anyone can intercept them and hijack your account -- compromising your network security.

That's why so many corporations have vpn in the first place (V = Virtual, P=Private, N=Network).

I gave up on the Mac in 1996. I've played around with OS X some since it came out last year.

I really, really like it.

But I've never seriously considered giving up my Windows box because there was no way to access the work vpn.

If this product can do what it promises, that may change very quickly.
