    I installed Apani/Netlock Nortel Contivity VPN client on my Macbook, with the Tiger update. The software uses a browser as a GUI to the VPN client. When I enter the localhost port number the client uses to interface with the browser, the browser just responds with "cant find server". Currently the client is compiled for PPC only.

    I have read that folks were able to use the Windows version of the client within the Parallel VM. I'm currently holding off on getting Parallel, so hopefully someone else got OS X PPC client running under Rosetta.

    I had major difficulties with the web client based nortel VPN client. I fact I got so sick of it, I installed Parallels + windows xp just to run the nortel client + citrix client to access my company's website. It works pretty sweet for me... Let me know if you ever get the OSX version to work....

    After some digging around, I think I found what's wrong with the PPC client on the Intel Macs. At bootup the client tries to load a kernel extension, but it won't complete since the extension is PPC.

    So until Apani comes out with a universal version, the only way to run the Nortel client with an Intel Mac is thru Parallel VM.

    Sorry to revive 1.5 year old thread.. but has anyone using this Apani OS-X client, and does it work with Leopard?
