Good thing I only have 1 Mac user that needs remote access, then!  We're using VNC as a workaround, I wonder if there is an IPSec method to connect him?

You may have found the best workaround using the VNC.  We don't support an IPSec client for remote users.

I found out it is really there for OSX, but on my MacBook Pro (64 bit) I get an error that the NetConnect cannot install.

Is there some JAVA issue blocking it?

Hi There,

Just to clarify - MAC OS-X Support is indeed there in PANOS 3.1.4 and SSL VPN Client 1.2.0 as stated above.  The kernel currently supported is 32-bit.  64-bit support will be a future enhancement.

it's out now...you need to be running 3.1.4 od PANOS and the 1.2 version of the SSL client.

works fine..

the "gui" from the icon you get on OSX that sits in the menu bar sometimes gives some funny output lik e its no connected, but it is actually, so test connectivity rather than relying on what the netconnect client says.

I'm a root user on my laptop, so I haven't had any issues installing..
