    Hi,

    has anyone succeeded in connecting to a L2TP VPN service in the newest Sierra? We have switched from an outdated PPTP setup at work. The new L2TP setup works on Mac OS 10.11 and iOS 9, but not on 10.12 and iOS 10 ("The server could not be found"). Can't understand why.

    Are you using the hostname or IP address? Using the hostname did not work for me, switching to IP did the job.

    Thanks for the reply! I've indeed used the host name, but when I try using the IP address I get the same result.
