Connecting VPNs with FortiToken Mobile

VPN connections to FortiGate may require network authentication that uses a token from FortiToken Mobile, which is an application that runs on Android or iOS devices. For information about FortiToken Mobile, see the Document Library.

FortiGate can be configured to let you push a token from FortiToken Mobile to FortiGate to complete network authentication when connecting VPNs. When configured, you can select the push token option by clicking the FTM Push button in FortiClient. This notifies the FortiGate that you choose to use the push token option. Following this, you receive a notification of the authentication request on your device that has FortiToken Mobile installed. On your device, you can tap the notification and follow the instructions to allow or deny the authentication requests

If a push token is not configured, you must type a token code from FortiToken Mobile into FortiClient when connecting VPNs.

You must have available the device with FortiToken Mobile installed to complete this procedure.
