    I noticed that a few users in the 116 announcement thread reported being unable to use L2TP after upgrading to 116, so I thought I should create a bug thread. (My apologies if this has already been done or is being worked on).

    For me, this was working on 115, and previous builds 112, 110, 109, 108. I skipped 111,113-114.

    In previous versions, I created firewall rules for UDP ports 500, 1701, and 4500, and the rules were active.

    I use TeamViewer as a "last resort" option, so I fixed the problem temporarily by moving the Mac Mini to the DMZ. Then, I decided to try turning the three firewall rules OFF (without removing them), saving those changes, then turning them back ON. This seemed to "reset" the rules and the VPN L2TP works again.
