comment PPTP VPN not working on Yosemite 10.10.3 with OS X Server 4.1
Hmmm... serious lack of comment on this one! I did some more digging and found support.apple.com/en-gb/HT4748 which says "PPTP can only be used if you are managing network users or users connected to a directory server. Local user accounts can only be used with LT2P." so perhaps I'm flogging a dead horse. I know I used to be able to use PPTP with iVPN so perhaps I'll go back to that, or just stick with L2TP since it's working fine for me.

Open Directory log contains this - Client: vpnaddkeyagentu, UID: 0, EUID: 0, GID: 0, EGID: 0 Node: /Local/Default, Module: PlistFile - unable to update FDE password - missing critical information

I thought I had it! I'm not running Open Directory so there isn't an LDAP server on my network. I therefore need to run sudo vpnaddkeyagentuser without further arguments to add the missing account. And that does work - I can see it in the Server.app user list. However, I still get the MPPE key retrieval error. Grrrr!

comment OS X status bar wifi icon - meaning of bars?
Your scaling doesn't agree with what I'm seeing - right now I have all 4 bars (as usual) but Option-click tells me the RSSI is -68, and WIFI Diagnostics says noise is -88, but Quality is Good to Excellent, when it really isn't!

comment OS X status bar wifi icon - meaning of bars?
I think I have 2 problems - firstly the wifi signal from the AP to me isn't brilliant; secondly the bandwidth from the AP to the "internet" isn't brilliant either. But with all this against me, why does the wifi icon still show 4 "bars" implying that everything is as good as it possibly can be?

Thanks, but this doesn't really answer my question "what does 4 lines on the wifi icon actually mean?". I suppose my fundamental question is what is the scale for the wifi "bars".

Thanks, but this doesn't really answer my question "what does 4 lines on the wifi icon actually mean?" I understand that -70dBm RSSI isn't that good, and that -90dBm noise isn't so bad, and that they combine to give an SNR around 15-25 which isn't so great either, but my fundamental question is what is the scale for the wifi "bars".
