    I was wondering if there is an app that would allow creating a VPN server on the client based version of OSX.
    I did a quick search and did not come up with anything.
    oh and sorry if my terminology is wrong :p
    thanks

    Just trying to connect to my home network (probably through PPTP) for using my net and file sharing.

    That seems complicated, I just wanted a simple VPN.
    It's so easy to create it on a Windows Machine. I bet you can do it on the OSX Server version.

    anyways, i found iVPN, which should do what I'm looking for...

    thanks tho,

    VPN's arent simple as a general rule....

    I use my router as VPN server, instead of my mac.

    It is a simple package. Considering the tag line is: "Finally, a VPN That Just Works," I can't imagine it that complicated.

    "Unlike traditional VPNs, LogMeIn Hamachi² can be set up in minutes"

    But to each their own. iVPN is pretty much an exact copy of OS X Server's VPN, so it should work for you although it is gonna cost you.

    Yea, I ended up flashing my router with DD-WRT and creating a VPN through that. Thanks for all the suggestions folks.
