Linux OpenVPN server MAC client?


What client can I use on a MAC to connect to an openvpn server?
All the client s seem to use password connections whereas the openvpn server uses certificates.

I found that one but it makes no mention of certificates.
All those VPN clients seem to work with passwords.

Well, OpenVPN works with certificates and OpenVPN recommends this program. So I guess it is safe to give it a try...

Look at http://openvpn.net/index.php/open-so...ion/howto.html and serach for 'Mac OS Notes'.

Unfortunately I can't tell much about Mac as I don't have one. However OpenVPN can work with certificates, passwords or a combination of both.
