Step 1: Open System Preferences and then select Network.

Step 2: Click + and then select VPN under the interface option. Specify PPTP, then Create.

Step 3:: Enter the VPN server’s IP address and account name. Encryption should be "None".

Step 4: Select Authentication Settings… and then enter the password.

Step 5: Select Advanced, we see an option to Send all traffic over VPN connection. Ticking this and then saving the changes will mean your Mac will pass all network traffic over the VPN.
