Forticlient can't connect to VPN on M1 Macbook Air

Hi,

 

I have a macbook with an M1 chip and can't get Forticlient v7 to work. I have tried v6 as well. My coworker with an Intel Macbook has Forticlient v6 running perfectly and can connect to our VPN with no issues. Going through the logs, I see the following errors.

Support/Fortinet/FortiClient/conf/epctrl.plist" not exist
20211129 12:30:27 [FortiTray:INFO] VpnManager.swift:611 VPN connecting
20211129 12:30:27 [FortiTray:INFO] VpnManager.swift:670 VPN disconnecting
20211129 12:30:27 [FortiTray:INFO] VpnManager.swift:591 VPN disconnected because of error: Tunnel error: startTunnelFailed

 Anyone has any idea about this? And has anyone with an M1 macbook managed to use Forticlient successfully to connect to their VPN? I can attach logs if needed.

Thanks!

Hi, I managed to get Forticlient to work on my M1 using this iPad version from the app store.
