    VPN Client for OS X (Nortel)
    Good afternoon, all.

    At this point, the only thing holding me back from completely saying goodbye to XP machine is the need to access my company's network. To do this, we use thee Nortel Extranet Client. I can't seem to find this for OS X.

    Does anyone know of a third party application that can support Nortel and/or a place where I can get the Mac Client for Nortel?

    Thanks in advance.

    - Peter

    If Nortel doesn't make one than you're most likely sunk. I doubt they do but if they did I doubt it would be free or cheap.

    Yeah, they make one, but like you said, it's expensive.

    thanks anyway!

    OS X has VPN built in. Don't know if it has the specific options you need though, maybe i can look around and figure out if it has something you need?

    Really?

    Where do I find that? It needs to be able to connect to a Nortel VPN system.

    Thanks!

    I found one that works, the Apani VPN Client for Nortel Contivity

    http://www.apani.com - it's 95.00, but it does work for me, I was able to jump on my company's intranet, no problem.. w00t!


    DeeDee, thanks for the link, but I didn't see Nortel as being supported, at least, not yet.

    sorry about the late reply but you go into internet connect, which is under applications and create a VPN connection
