Hi I have a MAC book with operating system 10.4.11. I used to use vpn to connect my work from this mac book.

All of a sudden I don't see any PPTP option. I only have l2tp over ipsec. I guess i only can use PPTP. How can I get PPTP option back in Internet connect. please help me

thanks

Did you lose it when you change to 10.4.11? I can't think of why you wouldn't have it. I use an l2tp also and I haven't had any such problem.

Hmm, it's still there in 10.5, so I can't imagine they would have removed it in 10.4.11.

Are you sure you can't select it somehow?
Try creating a new network location perhaps?
