An OS X tool that allows you create VPN connection configuration file between a FRITZ!Box and your Mac, iOS device or other FRITZ!Box devices
Working with the VPN!Assistant app is really simple, as it provides a wizard-like setup assistant where you choose the options you are interested in and enter basic information, such as your FRITZ!Box hostmane and password.
After specifying all the required information during the setup process, VPN!Assistant will generate the configuration files you need in order to activate your iOS, Mac or FRITZ!Box device.
Furthermore, VPN!Assistant can also enable the configuration in the FRITZ!Box automatically. This requires that the FRITZ!Box network be used. Moreover, to enable the VPN connection on your Mac or iOS device, simply follow the installation steps after selecting the configuration file.
Some important things to note are that your FRITZ!Box must have version xx.04.80 or higher firmware, and the iOS version of your iOS device must be 3.1 or later. Of course, your Mac must have OS X version 10.6.6 or later installed.
To sum up, VPN!Assistant is very simple to configure and provides an intuitive wizard interface for creating a VPN network between your Mac, iOS device and FRITZ!Box. It does not require any advanced knowledge and the price / value ratio is fair.
