Ask Max: How can I connect an XP machine via VPN to FileMaker on an OS X server?

Asked on 09/23/2009:

I have a G5 xServe running Mac OSX Server 10.4.11. I have a VPN set up for connecting and accessing FileMaker Pro 6.0 files. It works very well, with 1 exception, I cannot connect to the VPN with a PC running XP to access the multi-platform Filemaker files. It will not connect. What is the secret?

Thank You,



I could try to reiterate this article but they did good job explaining it. The basic sum of this is you need to use PPTP protocol on your OS X server to allow Windows clients.

The other option would be to use a different Windows VPN client.
