SECTION 9 - Install VPN Software on OSX
VPN Software Options on OSX
Two options for a VPN application on the Mac. Donald recommended Viscosity from http://www.sparklabs.com/viscosity/download/ which is $9 per Mac.
After the show Dr. Matt suggested the free TunnelBlick from http://code.google.com/p/tunnelblick. I installed both and they both work well. This tutorial will be for Viscosity, but if you try Tunnelblick you have to do one thing to make it work. In the Settings, Configuration tab, select Advanced and then uncheck the box to use TunnelBlick's tun/tap drivers. Some people do have trouble with this software so if it doesn't work for you then jump over to Viscosity.
Let's keep going with Viscosity as our example.

If you want to prove to yourself that you're on VPN - go to http://ipchicken.com before and after you VPN and you'll find that your IP changes to your home IP. Congratulations!
