I'm running 10.8.5 (not server) on my home laptop and wanted to set up a vpn server on it. I found a number of tutorials online (eg http://hints.macworld.com/article.php?story=20060616150640529) for configuring vpnd and have gotten to the point where it's up and running. I set up a shared secret password according to the tutorial. When I try to login from my phone using my standard admin account and password it fails with this

Some other people have had this issue and it's been suggested to try
sudo dscl . change /users/username AuthenticationAuthority \ ';ShadowHash;' \ ';ShadowHash;HASHLIST:<SALTED-SHA1,SMB-NT,SMB-LAN-MANAGER>'
But that gives me the error
<main> attribute status: eDSAttributeNotFound <dscl_cmd> DS Error: -14134 (eDSAttributeNotFound)
Anyone have any suggestions on how to move forward
