The Fortinet vpn ssl is unstable

Hi, we have two Fortigate 300E in HA with Firmware versión 6.2.2. This solution was implemented 4 moths ago. Since that date we have been looking for and testing different solutions to solve the disconnections of the SSL VPN, in some cases it is disconnected and in most cases the problem is that sensitive applications fall after a few minutes, applications such as RDP, SAP include other services like file server service.
We currently have a case with Fortinet support, but two months have gone by without any progress.
Anyone else had similar problems with the SSL VPN? Could you solve it in any way? I have read that some opted for IPSEC for this reason.
We have tested the different versions of Forticlient starting with 6.0 and finally the FortiClient VPN 6.2.0 free.
We also tried to modify the MTU with different values ​​in the affected rules, we added the line "set preserve-session-route" so that the sessions are not affected by the changes of routes, try disabled dtls, and change connection with other ISPs. Finally the Fortiner Support recommended me to update the firmware of the fortigate., but the latter didn't work either.
Also we tested disable dtls
I really appreciate if you can help me or tell me about your experiences with Fortinet SSL VPN.

Regards

    We have the same issue for about as long as well.   Our SSLVPN drops regularly and nobody has been able to help.  Curious how many of these are common between us:
     
    • I typically drop within 5 minutes of a session, but sometimes I get a good run of a few hours.  It's always most common after a reboot to drop more quickly. 
    • We originally implemented din May 2019 so have been dealing with this problem for 5 months or so.  Originally we were on 6.2, rolled back to 6.x, and we are back on 6.2.2
    • Migrated from Cisco AnyConnect of which we had no problem -- it was really rock solid for us
    • Primarily Windows 10 Surface devices connecting but have seen the problem on some Dell devices as well. The first time we had any FortiClient install on our systems was May 2019.  We've tried various FortiClient versions in the 6.x line. 
    • At this point, we are leaning on some sort of mystery configuration on our Windows 10 devices themselves but really have come up empty after months of troubleshooting.

    I am experiencing the same issue with for a client.   The issue is very inconsistent.   Some users have no issues at all.  Other experience it randomly.   I have a ticket with Fortinet support open and have it escalated to the highest level.   Sniffer traces, debugs on the firewall, process monitor on the workstation.  Nothing clear is showing a reason for this.   We see the issue with FortiOS 6.0.5 thru 6.2.2.  FortiClient 6.0.5 thru 6.2.2.

    We have opened a case in Fortinet support for more than two months and it is scaled, they say the issue is in development, but time passes and the solution does not arrive.

    Regards.

    I was running 6.0.5 and I had some people complaining about similar frequent disconnects. I recently upgraded to 6.0.7 and I noticed this in the list of things fixed in 6.0.7. I have not been running it long enough to notice if things are better.

    This bug id also was published in the list of "resolved issues" in the version 6.2.2:
     
    https://docs.fortinet.com/document/fortigate/6.2.2/fortios-release-notes/289806/resolved-issues
     
    But nothing is resolved.
