Apple fixes VPN connection issue with Mavericks Server updateApple on Thursday released a software update for OS X 10.9 Mavericks Server that fixes an issue which prevented some clients from communicating with VPN services through L2TP connections.
The VPN Update for Mavericks Server resolves a problem involving the refusal of L2TP connections to OS X Server's VPN service.
Prior to the update's release, a number of users complained of issues connecting with Mavericks Server's VPN service via L2TP. According to an Apple support document, the problem occurred when the client and server are behind different NAT gateways.
Thursday's VPN update requires the latest OS X Mavericks 10.9.1 version and Server 3.0.1 to operate. Apple notes that the update will only install itself on a machine that has already launched the Server app and used it to set up appropriate services.
Apple's VPN Update for Mavericks Server comes in at 1.6MB and can be downloaded via Software Update or Apple's Support Downloads webpage.
