Using Windows Connection Manager based VPN on MacOS RRS feed

  • Question

  • IT department of my company sent me a zip file for connecting to our corporate VPN. I understand that it is a deployable Windows VPN client called “Connection Manager” and it was prepared with Windows Connection Manager Administration Kit. It seems that is supposed to be installed on Windows without any parameter. After installing I have just entered my username and password and since then I can establish a VPN connection without any problem.

    The main question is: How can I connect to that same VPN service from my Mac. I primarily use my Mac and switching to Windows PC every time when I need corporate resources is a pain in the neck.

    I have tried to find out the parameters of the deployable client but no luck. I could not even find which protocol it is using. There are some files in the installation package named "routing text" or "cmroute.dll" but do not know what to do with them.

    Is there any chance for me to connect to my corporate VPN on Mac? (IT department is not helping me so getting help from them is out of the question)
