    MacOS Server and VPN
    Hi Folks,

    Glad to see we're still here.

    I'm running the native VPN on Server so I can access my home network when I'm away. It works flawlessly except when there's an OS update waiting. I'll suddenly find my VPN is down and when I get home and check the server, there is an update waiting for a download/reboot. This is often a pain in the butt since I may be away for days and can't get home to reboot the server. Is there a way to prevent the VPN from being disabled just because there's an update waiting? Do I need to disable auto-updating somehow?

    Currently running Server on High Sierra with all but the very latest update, as it appears that is now waiting for me to reboot.

    Try going to System Preferences -> App Store ->Uncheck "Automatically check for updates." This should stop it from automatically checking.

    You will have to remember to check on your own to keep from missing important updates. I would be curious to know if it works.

    Recommend using Onyx to clean your Mac.

    Thanks, Lisa. I'll give it a shot. Since my main machine is an iMac, I'll know when there's an update available and I can then apply it on the server.
