I want to find l2tp over ipsec in macOS 10.13.4 but only get l2tp/ipsec. Is l2tp over ipsec canceled ?

I tried to select the option and connect VPN. But it is not working and I get the connection log:

  • I have the same issue. My endpoint is a Mikrotik router running an L2TP/ipsec server. I can connect to via my android phone but not from my MackBook. I get the exact same log output as the OP – user324109 Mar 13 at 1:17

l2tp/ipsec is equivalent to l2tp over ipsec. The / in technical English is often spoken as the word over.

You can find L2TP over IPSec in the Network System Preference settings:

  1. Launch System Preferences
  2. Select Network
  3. Select +
  4. Select Interface VPN
  5. Select VPN Type L2TP over IPSec

L2TP over IPSec

  • Please can you edit your question to add the type of server/router/device. The error log suggests a configuration error in your settings. – Graham Miln Sep 26 '18 at 13:57
