It doesn't work for me
Authored by: archangelnix on Jun 30, '06 10:06:12AM

Maybe I am missing something but I have tried it on a G5 and G4 PowerMac and it doens't work for me.

I sudo created the plist and pasted the code from the txt file linked to the article. In the code I changed the IP range to something smaller. (Does it have to be the same IP subnet that my router dishes out? My router issues 192.168.2 and I set it for 10.0.2 in the plist).

I "touched" the log file (which it created since it didn't exist before).

In the command used to create a key I excluded the "\" character as I found it reported an error when I left it in.

I then ran vpnd. I didn't get an error, but when I look in Console I don't see anything, I even checked the VPND log and it was empty. I ran px -ax |grep vpn and it didn't find anything either.

I am running 10.4.7 on both machines. Any pointers?

I have just discovered that since upgrading my powerbook g4 to 10.4.7 I can't use L2TP against one of my servers that has been working well for ages. I can however use PPTP which I am waiting to turn off, but due to Apple not letting Nat-T work on PCs (or the other way around) I can't. Oddly I can still use L2TP against another server (both servers xserves on 10.4.6). These xserves also use the site-to-site stuff reasonably (since it is a little unfinished). Whilst I am checking this, I though I might just mention it, incase others have had the same experience with 10.4.7 - note this is just speculation at this stage.
