Manual VPN connection setup with L2TP VPN on macOS was simple and with the new macOS version (macOS 13.0 Ventura) and its settings changes, the process became more easier.
Since the L2TP protocol is integrated into the macOS settings, you can connect to VPN using the L2TP VPN configuration without installing a third-party app. Simply follow the instructions below to create a manual VPN connection on your Mac, iMac, and MacBook devices.
