Sharing the VPN connection on Mac OS X

If you are using Mac OS X and want to share the VPN connection to a device that doesn’t support VPNs (TV/XBOX360/PS3),

this is how you do it with the built in internet connection sharing in Mac OS X.

In this setup i’m connected to the VPN with WiFi and I will be sharing the VPN on the LAN/Ethernet port.
