Forticlient config file not saving password

When creating a backup config file from a ipsec connected Forticlient and using that file to create a new Forticlient only the username shows up when installing the custom Fortlclient on a new PC.

How to modify the config file that also the password is transferred to the new PC.

We using Forticlient 6.0.10.0297.

Hi,

The user password is a security issue.

It is not possible to be transferred from one device to another.

In case that you would like to save the password, you can enable save password on the client and FGT VPN, the user will be asked just once and the password will be saved.

Let us know if you have more questions.

 

Thanks

Hi ctanev1,

 

Thank you for your support.  I have one more question.

In the Forticlient 6.0.10.0297 version under 'settings/ advanced you can select in what tab the client will open on start up. Can you start the Forticlient in command line and use a parameter to open Forticlient in tab 'Remote Access'  like forticlient / remote?

 

Thank you
