    I use Virtual Private Network.(VPN) L2TP

    at iPhone connect and receive data

    at MacBook connect but doesn't receive data

    what is difference between VPN configure at iOS and OSX ?

    For iPhone I did this Instruction :


    I Choose "L2TP" tab.
    Enter Server, Account, Password and Secret
    Send All Traffic should be ON.

    and for MacBook I did :


    I Enter the VPN server’s IP address and user name.
    Select Authentication Settings… and then enter the password. enter the shared secret.
    the "Send all traffic over VPN connection" check box should be marked.

    Where do I mistake ?

    Thanks in advance

    Try this. Make a new Location in System Preferences->Network pane and use the pull-down in Location to make a custom named Location an make sure you save it. Then in that new Location make a new VPN connection again to see if that helps.
