FortiGate Next Generation Firewall utilizes purpose-built security processors and threat intelligence security services from FortiGuard labs to deliver top-rated protection and high performance, including encrypted traffic.

This article describes how to change the security of the bookmark for VPN users using RDP.


If bookmarks are saved with the type RDP, it takes the security as  Standard RDP encryption.

Scope FortiGate, all firmware.

Suppose in the portal there are predefined bookmarks for all the users who are using SSL-VPN.




The type of the bookmark is RDP and by default, it uses Standard RDP encryption for Security.




To change the RDP type where it uses Network level authentication, it is necessary to select the security drop-down and in that, where the Network level authentication security for the RDP will be visible.




Once selected, the users using RDP will have network-level authentication.


Point to Note:


Sometimes, the server tried to RDP into, does not support Standard RDP encryption, and 'Allow server to choose the type of security' option is needed here for the bookmark to work.
