Increasing remote authentication timeout using FortiGate CLI

To allow enough time for the remote authentication process to take place, the default value of the remote authentication timeout must be increased.

To increase remote authentication timeout:
  1. In the FortiGate CLI console, enter the following commands:

    config system global

    set remoteauthtimeout 60 #seconds that the FortiGate waits for response from remote authentication server.

    end

    Remote authentication timeout value should be adjusted according to the requirements of your environment. The value (60 seconds) set above may not work for you.
