    I'm trying to figure out how to get this to work. My coworker used his macbook pro just fine, but then the update was released and now it won't connect.

    Anyone familiar w/ this? I just installed VM and Windows and mine doesn't work off the bat.

    your computer runs os x, and you're running VM ware fusion with windows and you are trying to VPN into you work computer from the virtual windows machine? and your work computer has windows?

    VPN from your MBP first and then launch your VM.

    :cool:

    Thanks. I didn't think that OS X and VPN got along, that's why I was trying to start it in Windows.

    Yeah. I don't think my company's VPN gets along with os x very well, so I wanted to connect that way.

    I'm fairly certain it's proprietary for the company.
