Endpoint control

FortiClient usually downloads endpoint control configuration elements from the FortiGate or FortiClient EMS after FortiClient connects to the FortiGate or FortiClient EMS. When FortiClient connects to FortiGate and/or EMS, it is connecting Telemetry to FortiGate and/or EMS. There are two sections:

  • Endpoint control general attributes. These are contained in the <endpoint_control></endpoint_control> XML tags.
  • Configuration details relating to specific FortiClient services, such as AV, Web Filter, Application Firewall, Vulnerability Scan, and so on. These are found in the respective configuration elements of the services affected.

Boolean value: [0 | 1]

When this setting is configured as 1, the FortiClient user is unable to disconnect from the FortiGate or EMS after initial registration. This XML setting is intended to be used with <silent_registration>. If Enable Registration Key for FortiClient is enabled on FortiGate or EMS, configure this password in the <registration_password> XML tag, and enter the IP address or addresses of the FortiGate or EMS in the <addresses> XML tag.

<fortigates> elements

This is a list of FortiGates that immediately appears in the FortiClient console. The client is capable of connecting with them if they are online. If <endpoint_control><silent_registration> is set to 1, the client attempts to silently connect. The list is in priority order.

<fortigate>

This element (with its child elements) repeats for each FortiGate that should appear in FortiClient's console interface.

<registration_password>

When FortiClient registers/connects to FortiGate and Enable Registration Key for FortiClient is enabled on the FortiGate, configure the password in the <registration_password> XML setting. The <registration_password> element contains the registration password (encrypted or plain text) required to register to the FortiGate units listed in <endpoint_control><fortigates><fortigate><addresses>

When FortiClient registers/connects to EMS and EMS requires a connection key, configure the password in the <registration_password> XML setting. The <registration_password> element contains the connection key required to register to the EMS listed in <endpoint_control><notification_server><addresses>.

The element is not needed when FortiGate or EMS does not require a password

<addresses>

The FortiGate that appears in the console can be a list of FortiGate addresses. FortiClient attempts to connect to the first FortiGate listed here.

A "redundancy list" of FortiGate IP:port pairs that represent this FortiGate. The list must have at least one FortiGate IP:port pair. Multiple FortiGate IP:port pairs are delimited with a semicolon.

Both IP addresses and FQDN are permitted. The list is in priority order.

If Enable Registration Key for FortiClient is enabled on the FortiGate, configure the IP address or FQDN of the FortiGate in the FortiClient <addresses> XML setting.

<local_subnets_only>

Boolean value: [0 | 1]

0

<notification_server>

Enable EMS to manage FortiClient after FortiClient connects to the FortiGate IP address and port numbers specified by EMS. Configure the EMS IP address.

<nac> elements

This element (with its child elements) specifies up to three compliance rules for network access control (NAC). When an endpoint configuration does not comply with all compliance rules configured in the <nac> elements, non-compliance is triggered, and network access might be blocked. For information about how compliance rules work, see the FortiClient Administration Guide. Compliance rules apply only when FortiClient is connected to FortiGate. When FortiClient is not connected to FortiGate, compliance rules are not used. You can configure none, one, or all three compliance rules.

<processes>

(Optional) Create a policy for an application and its signature.

<process>

Identify an application name and its signature. This element should be repeated for each unique application name.

<process id="" name="" rule="">

ID of this process entry and name of the application that is associated with the signatures, for example, <process id="1" name="MS Word">. Also shows whether FortiGate compliance rules require this process to be present or absent on the endpoint.

<signature name="" />

Identify the application name and signature. Repeat this element for different versions of the same application.

<files>

(Optional) Create a policy for a file and path. The policy is compliant when the file can be found.

<path id=""/>

ID of this path entry. Identify the path of the file for the policy. Repeat this element for each unique file path.

<registry>

(Optional) Create a policy for a registry key or value.

<path id=""/>

ID of this path entry. Identify the registry key or value. When the path ends with a forward slash (/), it identifies a key. When the path ends without a forward slash, it identifies a registry value.

When you disable <ui> elements from displaying in the FortiClient console, the modules are still installed as part of the FortiClient installation. To configure a VPN-only installation, you can use FortiClient EMS. When selecting VPN only, all other modules are not part of the FortiClient installation.

The <fortigate> element is used to define the FortiGates in a roaming (or redundant) FortiGate configuration. One or more <fortigate> elements may be provided within <fortigates>.

When you disable <ui> elements from displaying in the FortiClient console, the modules are still installed as part of the FortiClient installation. To configure a VPN-only installation, you can use FortiClient EMS. When selecting VPN only, all other modules are not part of the FortiClient installation.

The <fortigate> element is used to define the FortiGates in a roaming (or redundant) FortiGate configuration. One or more <fortigate> elements may be provided within <fortigates>.
