OS X 10.5 Leopard includes better VPN support

We have a simple PPTP VPN setup using a Fortigate firewall, but the Mac OS X 10.4 users had a hard time with it. The problem was that there was no way to set the DNS servers for the PPTP connection within OS X 10.4, so everything had to use IP addresses. It appears that they've fixed this in OS X 10.5 Leopard, and I'm going to guess it is also fixed in Snow Leopard (OS X 10.6). You also do not use the Internet Connect application to configure VPN connections anymore either, but rather the Network section of System Preferences. For a nice guide on where to find this, and how to setup the VPN connection in OS X 10.5, check out this page over at
