Connecting a Mac VPN client

Christopher Dakin

Installation and configuration of the Mac VPN client can be done from the LogonBox VPN UI.

 

1. Configuring the client

Navigate to https://<logonboxserver> and log on with your created user into the User Portal.

You should be presented with the User Setup page which should guide you through the setup.

Note: this page can take 10-20 seconds to load as it is currently generating your VPN config files for you.

First click the Install Mac to download the client, this will take you to the Mac Appstore.

 

Now, we need the client configuration file which we can get from step 2.

There are 3 options to get the config - A QR code, the Raw config file text, or click the Download Configuration button.

For Mac, click the Download Configuration button to save the required .conf file.

 

Launch the Wireguard client downloaded in step 1 where you should be presented with a blank tunnels page.

Click Import tunnel(s) from file and load the config file just downloaded.

 

Click Allow when asked if you would like to add VPN Configurations.

 

The configuration is now imported.

 

2. Connecting the client

Now you can click Activate to connect the client up. The client should have a green circle in status and 'Active' when connected.

 

You will also get a connection notification in the top bar where you can quickly connect/disconnect.

 

You should now be able to access addresses in the remote network.
