It's reported that the new version of Mac OS and iOS(iPhone/iPad) ,Mac OS Sierra and iOS 10,will be released in a few days.


Apple announces that PPTP type of VPN connection will be unavailable in these version.


Therefore VPN connection of PPTP type will be unavailable in new OS with the connection service from off-campus provided by Kyoto University(VPN connection).
PPTP type users should refrain from upgrading the OS.
We will provide "IKEv2" connection service as substitute VPN service in September. Please wait for the news of providing it if you wish to use it.
However, it's unfrotunate to announce that we can't provide IKEv2 for the PPTP-VLAN fixed connection(connection to the specified labo) for a while. Please be cautious of upgrading concerning above.
