iVPN is the original VPN server for non-server Macs. It uses Apple's built-in, rock solid VPN server; the same used in Mac OS X Server.

iVPN easily creates a standards based PPTP and L2TP VPN server on your home or office Mac. With just a few details and a couple of clicks, you'll be ready to connect securely to your Mac from anywhere in world and from nearly any device!

Using a public WiFi hotspot? iVPN is perfect for you…just connect to iVPN from your device and you instantly have a secure tunnel for all your internet traffic. Never worry about internet banking on the move again!

You can easily keep an eye on all connections to your Mac with the built-in iVPN Monitor. Check what IP address they have connected from and how long they've been connected.

Advanced if you need it! iVPN allows you to add as many users as you want, but if you already have a directory server with all your users, iVPN can link to that too! Custom DNS and static routes means that iVPN can fit into nearly any network environment.

"I've set this up for about a dozen non-OS X Server clients. I appreciate that it uses the existing Unix VPN services, is very easy to implement, and is very reliable." - SCOTT.GARDNER - MacUpdate

"Many tools let me use OS X client as though it was a proper server. Webmin does a pretty decent job on the cheap, but iVPN lets you do the one thing I needed to do that I could not figure out through other tools: run a cheap VPN server. I didn't want to go the route of a DD-WRT router for serving up a VPN, and this program does exactly what I needed it to do.

It is well worth the money. Works perfectly." - PrimeWaveZ - VersionTracker

"It just works! Even if the VPN ports are redirected from your router to the machine running iVPN. More simple couldn't be possible. Works flawlessly with my Macs, PCs and iPhone! A demo would have been appreciated before buying, but after hours spent searching for a simple solution and dealing with my NetGear router configuration, I must confess I'd had have to try this first. Worth the price, really." - PASCAL OLRY - MacUpdate

"Great bit of software !! With this I can use the Leopard built in screen sharing to get remote desktop access easily, plus tunnel apple file sharing etc. Much simpler than setting up SSH tunnels etc." - WFM - MacUpdate

"Agreed; this is simply perfect. Drop-dead simple, and it allows seamless connectivity from any standard PPTP client - which is built into both Mac OS X and Windows.

About my only gripes are:

- Documentation: Really needs to discuss forwarding port 1723. Preferably would discuss what changes are made to the system to enable the VPN.
- Interface: Really dark. Give up on brushed metal - it's dead. Also, there's no good reason to split so few options into two tabs when they'll easily fit on one without looking crowded.*

When that's all I can find to nitpick, it's a sign of excellent software." - E_COMMERCE - MacUpdate *(Version 1.1)

"Does exactly what it says on the tin. Living abroad, I'm not able to get to watch 'catch up' on BBC iPlayer or the ITV equivalent. This weekend I found two ways round this, one was iSSH, and the other was iVPN. I didn't realise they were both by the same chap - brilliant!

Anyways, the review. The server is very simple to set up, but don't forget to open the ports on the server side, and port redirect the router. I bet that catches a couple of newbies out, the port is 1723.

Client side, the only confusion was after entering the settings in leopard, you need to 'apply' the settings before hitting 'connect', which seems a bit Windows-ish to me. But that is nothing to do with this app or the author.

Many many thanks. Now I got iplayer, and printing direct to my office comp, and afp, and.... You get the picture." - WAKAYAMA - MacUpdate


Do not use iVPN on Mac OS X Server. You will no longer be able to use Server Admin to configure your VPN server.
