Hi,
 
Tried today the new forticlient but noticed that it misses the ssl-vpn module.

I'm assuming it doesn't (yet) support VPN. We use OpenFortiGUI for Linux SSL connections, it works really well and given it's opensource Fortinet could integrate it with the new Linux FortiClient.

Hello,
 
I use the OpenFortiGUI too. It works well.
But the new FortiClient 6 from Fortinet should also support the SSL VPN.
 
 
There is support for SSL VPN in the technical specification:
https://www.forticlient.com/techspec
 
But I can not see the VPN module.

Oh that's interesting, I've not seen anything in EMS or the Linux FC that suggests there is. I'll do some digging tomorrow as I have a test EMS 6.0 server and an Ubuntu 18.04 VM with FC installed.

It's not supported yet with 6.0. I've heard it's in the roadmap for future updates but currently no VPN on the Linux client.

Hi, 
I noticed too. 
But Fortinet people does not see it. They are blind?
I reported it via fortinet ticket and they do not trust me.
Grrrr.
I was so excited for the new linux client. But I got the cold shower.... :-)

Hi,
On the web site https://www.forticlient.com/downloads is bad information. There is Linux client version 6.0 on this site. And "TECHSPEC" via button/link "Technical Specification" show, that the client support SSL VPN.
That is not right.

I like 6.0, but yes, I'm still using the standalone client from many moons ago.  Still having to start it sudo
It's a bit heavy on CPU use, but that's to be expected

Hi all,
unbelievable has become a reality.
Fortinet has fixed the information about ssl vpn for linux client on their web sites.
Very good, dear Fortinet. The solution was very simple. :-)
Now the techspec does not show support ssl vpn for linux client on this web site:
https://www.forticlient.com/downloads and click to "technical specification" link.
