ExpressVPN is reducing app support for Mac OS X 10.11 and macOS 10.12 starting from May 10, 2022. After this date, the app version for Mac OS X 10.11 or macOS 10.12 will not receive updates for any new features, although it will continue to receive major security updates.
Note: ExpressVPN no longer supports Mac OS X 10.10 and below. You can still download ExpressVPN on Mac OS X 10.11 and macOS 10.12; however, the app version you will receive will have limited support, as described above.
So, Mac OS X is still current even though the first version of macOS, the Mac OS X replacement, was made available in September 2016. This new operating system was built into Sierra, or Mac OS 10.12. High Sierra, released in September 2017, is the latest version of the Mac operating system and is also known as macOS 10.13. Mac OS 10.14, known as Mojave, arrived in the fall of 2018. Catalina and MacOS version Big Sur came out after Mojave. The most recent version is called Monterey (macOS 12.4), which came out on May 16, 2022.
Some time ago, Apple stopped the support for its built-in PPTP VPN client on Mac (macOS Sierra 10.12.). This isn't a reason to replace your entire network infrastructure, because you are still able to establish a secure PPTP VPN connection with Shimo. The following instruction shows you how to connect to PPTP VPN in macOS Sierra 10.12, High Sierra 10.13 and Mojave 10.14 using our VPN client Shimo.
Same issue here. Forticlient 5.4.0 for Mac appears to be the only app that doesn't work with macOS 10.12. Forticlient for Mac was last updated October of 2015, so hoping that they are working on a 5.4.1 that works with the new macOS.
PPTP has enjoyed great popularity among Mac users for its simplicity and lightning speed. It can noticeably increase VPN speed and require no additional device like a rooter. Unfortunately, Apple has removed PPTP support on macOS Sierra (10.12) and the above versions for security concerns. What is worse, the PPTP.ppp kernel extension plugin was removed from the network configuration system thoroughly after macOS 10.15 (Catalina) version, making PPTP VPN connections impossible.
If you want to keep your Firefox version up to date, you need to upgrade your operating system to macOS 10.12 or higher. Apple does not support older versions. They are unreliable and unsafe to use, which also makes it difficult to maintain Firefox on those versions.
I am using macOS 10.12.3 and Cisco Anyconnect VPN client version 4.3.05017. I recently started getting the following error when attempting to connect to my work VPN server "no valid certificates available for authentication". My company issuing CA certificate and my User certificate both look fine in Keychain but it appears that the Cisco Anyconnect VPN client validate that I have the proper certificates.
Note: If you do not see your macOS version on the table above, it means you can no longer install Trend Micro Antivirus on macOS Sierra (10.12) and below. We recommend upgrading your Mac to its latest version so you can experience the full features of Antivirus for Mac.
I also have a Mac with OSX 10.12.2 that seems to be connected to linux001 but can not communicate. I got it to the point its at by starting with this guide on tinc-vpn.org.

The current version of the Cisco AnyConnect client available through the VPN server upgrades and on the WebStore ( as of 1/11/2023 this is 4.10.06079) is officially supported and compatible with Mac OS versions that support 64-bit applications including Mac OS versions 10.14 (Mojave), 10.15 (Catalina), 11 (Big Sur), 12 (Monterey), and 13 (Ventura). As a 64-bit application, with updates for the security changes in Mac OS 10.15, this version should be compatible with future operating systems Apple releases. Mac OS 10.12 users can use version 4.7 if version 4.8 does not work.
Its Mac app is compatible with Sierra (10.12) and newer and setting it up is easy. You can only use the free version on 1 device, but Proton VPN offers free OpenVPN config files for router setup, allowing you to use it on all your home devices.
TunnelBear offers a user-friendly Mac app that is easy to set up. It only took me 5 minutes to download and install the VPN. Moreover, you can connect to a reliable server with only 1 click, and it has an adorable interface with cartoon bear animations. This makes it fun to use and a good option for beginners. The app is compatible with macOS Sierra (10.12) and up. 2b1af7f3a8
