Setting up TV4Expats access under Mac OS X 10.4 is simple. The following instructions go step–by–step through the creation process.


System Requirements

Before setting up the VPN, be sure your installation is up–to–date by running Software Update. At the time of this writing the latest Mac OS X version was 10.4.1.


Open Internet Connect

First, open the ‘Applications’ folder by going to the Finder and choosing “New Finder Window” from the “File” menu. Click on the ”Applications” icon, then scroll down until you see the “Internet Connect” icon.


Double–click on the “Internet Connect” icon. You should see a window like the one below. Your ‘Network’ and ‘Base Station ID’ will probably be different.


Create a New VPN Connection

Next, go to the ‘File’ menu and select “New VPN Connection Window.”


You should see the following screen. Click ‘L2TP over IPsec,’ then click ‘Continue.’


Set the Connection Information

The next screen will look like this. Click the ‘Other’ popup menu, then select ‘Edit Configurations…’


You should see the VPN Configuration window:


Fill in the fields as follows, so the VPN Configuration screen looks like this:


For the ‘Description’ field, type ‘TV4Expats’


Enter one of the supplied server addresses as the ‘Server Address.’ This is the DNS name of the TV4Expats server.


Enter your TV4Expats.com username.

Enter your TV4Expats password.

Type ‘ 52003017’ in lower case. This is the IPsec shared secret, and is required to connect via IPsec.


After you’re done, click the ‘OK’ button. The ‘Internet Connect’ window should look something like this, except with your TV4Expats username:


That’s it! You’re done!


When you want to connect


When you want to connect to TV4Expats, double–click on “Internet Connect,” click on “TV4Expats”, then click the ‘Connect’ button.
