GUI for the VPN server in OS X.

Overview

iVPN is the original VPN server for non-server Macs. It uses Apple's built-in, rock solid VPN server; the same used in OS X Server.

iVPN easily creates a standards based PPTP and L2TP VPN server on your home or office Mac. With just a few details and a couple of clicks, you'll be ready to connect securely to your Mac from anywhere in world and from nearly any device!

Using a public WiFi hotspot? iVPN is perfect for you…just connect to iVPN from your device and you instantly have a secure tunnel for all your internet traffic. Never worry about internet banking on the move again!

You can easily keep an eye on all connections to your Mac with the built-in iVPN Monitor. Check what IP address they have connected from and how long they've been connected.

Advanced if you need it! iVPN allows you to add as many users as you want, but if you already have a directory server with all your users, iVPN can link to that too! Custom DNS and static routes means that iVPN can fit into nearly any network environment.

Warning: Do not use iVPN on macOS Server. You will no longer be able to use Server to configure your VPN server.

With all due respect to everyone, let's all take a step back, and take a deep breath. While I can understand people's unhappiness, I think that this discussion has gone from civil to uncivil in far too short of a time. Because of that, instead of having a dialogue, the developer didn't have a chance to start out with anything but defensiveness--which I can understand. I really appreciate developers who offer software for free. I'm also a capitalist, who understands the desire to make a fair profit from a desired commodity. Learning how young the developer is has given me even more respect for his aptitude for writing software. I'm more than twice his age, and I wish I could write my own applications like this. It's also the reason that I think we should extend and some grace over the way things transpired. Which leads me to offer my /suggestion/ as to how this could have turned out. IMHO, software listed as "free" at the time of download should remain free indefinitely. But now that the developer realizes he has a good product on his hands, what's the best way to transition? I think the developer could have first notified the user base of his intentions, and offered discounts for people already using the software. The discount could be something like, "the list price on the next version will be $30, but if you purchase a license now, you'll only have to pay $10. $15 will get you a license for the next two versions. After that, everyone will pay the list price." I think that giving your user base advance notice, along with a discount opportunity, can go a long way. As users, we want to encourage developers to continue writing great software for the Mac. In this case, and even though I'm in agreement with the other users who spoke up, I think that this went from us dialoguing with the developer to us versus the developer too quickly. Just one man's $.02.

The MacUpdate link to the Developer Web site results in a 404 Not Found error. So the web site is no longer on that server. Similar issue with the link from the Apple Mac App Store. Is this still a supported product? And does it work on Mojave?

Just installed this on 2 new macOS 10.14.1. Now that Apple has removed the GUI to VPN this is a needed program. In both installs it is working fine. Make sure you are on the newest one from the Website. It does what it is intended to do.

I've just installed the latest version (7.02?) ON Lion server, against Alex' advice, and it seems rock solid, with non stop logins from 4 separate remotes. Locks in much faster than the VPN on Lion server (when it was actually working, which it hasn't been for 5 weeks... no changes to the setup and I lost a lot of hair and sleep, trying to figure it out.) Maybe my endorsement is premature, but I'm relieved and glad of a solution, finally. Anyway, I guess you should continue at your own risk, but I simply turned off the VPN service from within the Server app itself, and it seems fine. Such a simple and cheap solution to my headaches. I couldn't find any local gurus to really nail this problem down, and spent over a $800 to get it up and halfway running for about a year, then another $200 for a local IT guy to try to help, although he wasn't particularly claiming to be an OS X server expert. I'm relieved with this as a solution and hope that it stays stable. If not, then I will try setting it up on a separate machine, but I need (I think) to have my remotes pointed to the same machine where my database resides.

The way I read the advice Alex provided, is that if you install this on the server OS, you will break the built-in VPN management tools. If you never intend to touch the VPN management tools that were provided by Apple, then you'll most likely not experience any problems.

I had version 6.4 installed on a Snow Leopard system (10.6.8) and it ran fine. Installed version 7 and it crashes immediately upon launch. The developer's webpage says it runs on 10.6 - so does the info on MacUpdate. Is it possible this is not accurate?

"This VPN server is usually only available on Mac OS X Server and configured through the Server Admin application." Can I use it on iPhone or just available on Mac computer?

Rip Off. In process of trying to receive this "refund" I've heard so much about. I've sent 4 or 5 emails, no response. I will be launching a new blog/web site to document how this is handled - iVpn will not get away with this. I too was sucked in by someone else's "good" review of the product. Check out what is now posted on iVpn's website... - WARNING - Do not use iVPN on Mac OS X Server. You will no longer be able to use Server Admin to configure your VPN server. I bought this specifically to solve the Lion Server VPN issues. It's not working at all for me.

I just sent this to them: iVPN refund? How do I get this going? I will be opening a blog – telling all the details of how you are not responding to my emails. Just looking for a refund for iVPN – since it clearly will not work for OS X Server, as stated on your web site. I will continue to email you, multiple times a day and as well, I will be launching a website and blogs… something along the line of www.ivpn-is-a-scam.com

As darbul pointed out the statement about using ivpn on the server version of os x has been there since I have known of the app... multiple years. Still it stands, if you are within your 60 day "trial" period you are owed a refund... but then again, not everyone is honest and follows through with what they say. It is the internet after all. Let others who are considering the app know your experience, but imo, it is not worth wasting your time and in turn money advertising about a bad developer/person. Let it be known, learn your lesson, and move on. Then again it is my opinion and your time to do with as you please. Good luck on the refund.
