I would like to work occasionally from home and I need a Virtual Private Network (VPN) client for OS X (10.9).

A plus point would be if it's for free but I'm also willing to pay for the software.

It needs to support Point-to-Point Tunneling Protocol (PPTP).

I'd like it to have good encryption and my company network requires at least support form/strength of encryption.

    What kind of features do you expect from this? Why is the built-in client not satisfactory? Feb 6 '14 at 23:08

    Someone flagged this for reopening. Until it is edited to address what features you need this is not a well written question so I for one am not re-opening it. @Dirty-flow I'll propose an edit with some blanks to be filled it that will make it better and possiby reopenable. Feb 8 '14 at 20:12
  • You can use Viscosity, an OpenVPN client for Mac & Windows which provides SSL/TLS Client support and you can easily configure your CA/Cert/Key/Tls-Auth certificates.

You could use the VPN client built into macOS by Apple.

  • Just open Network Preferences
  • click the plus(+)
  • Select VPN

See Apple’s instructions for macOS Sierra.
