Connecting SSL and IPsec VPNs

Depending on the FortiClient configuration, you may also have permission to edit an existing VPN connection and delete an existing VPN connection.

Microsoft Internet Explorer's SSL and TLS settings should be the same as those on the FortiGate.

  1. On the Remote Access tab, select the VPN connection from the dropdown list.

    Optionally, you can click the system tray, right-click the icon, and select a VPN configuration to connect.

    Provisioned VPN connections are listed under Corporate VPNs. Locally configured VPN connections are listed under Personal VPNs.

  2. Type your username and password.
  3. If a certificate is required, select a certificate.

    If the VPN tunnel was configured to require a certificate, you must select a certificate. If no certificate is required, the option is hidden in FortiClient.

    Your administrator may have configure FortiClient to automatically locate a certificate for you.

  4. Click the Connect button.

    When connected, FortiClient displays the connection status, duration, and other relevant information. You can now browse your remote network. Click the Disconnect button when you are ready to terminate the VPN session.
