This article shows you the Intune settings you can use to configure VPN connections on devices running macOS.

Depending on the settings you choose, not all values in the following list are configurable.

Base VPN settings

Connection name - Enter a name for this connection. End users see this name when they browse their device for the list of available VPN connections.

  • IP address or FQDN - Provide the IP address or fully qualified domain name of the VPN server that devices connect to. Examples: 192.168.1.1, vpn.contoso.com.
  • Authentication method - Choose how devices authenticate to the VPN server from:
    • Certificates - Under Authentication certificate, Choose a SCEP or PKCS certificate profile you previously created to authenticate the connection. For more details about certificate profiles, see How to configure certificates.
    • Username and password - End users must supply a username and password to log into the VPN server.
