    Those instructions look like they're for OS... 10.3?

    VPNs are now configured in System Preferences > Network. Click the plus sign in the bottom left and select VPN from the Interface menu.

    It depends on the type of VPN you're using as to whether you need client software. Firstly, do you know the type of VPN server you're attempting to connect to? Secondly, do you know the protocol it is using? For instance, is it an SSL or IPSec VPN?
