This guide describes the configuration of a PPTP connection on Mac OS X Lion using the Operating Systems built-in client.
It is recommended to use OpenVPN to connect to our service.
OpenVPN surpasses firewalls and routers easier and is more secure than PPTP.
PPTP is considered broken and should really only be used on platforms where OpenVPN is not available.
Instead of setting up PPTP, please follow the corresponding OpenVPN guide.
To start configuring a new network connection on Mac OS X, open the System Preferences from the -Menu.
From the Internet & Wireless section, select Network.
Add a new network interface by clicking the +-sign. A new pane opens.
The Interface should be set to VPN, the VPN Type to use is PPTP. The service name of course is IPredator.
The new interface needs to be supplied with a Server Address to connect to, which is pptp.ipredator.se.
Enter your user name in the Account name field. Only allow Maximum (128 bit only) encryption.
For later use, check Show VPN status in menu bar. Enter the Authentication Settings.
Enter your password. Click OK and enter the Advanced settings.
In the Options tab, make sure to have Send all traffic over VPN connection checked. Switch to the TCP/IP tab.
Restrict IPv6 to be Link-local only.
If you are running a prior version of Mac OS X (before Lion), then choose automatically.
Click Apply to save your settings. The PPTP interface is now configured.
If you experience any problem after using this guide, please check our Problem Guide and the FAQ first.
