Hi

As per my tests, unfortunately this is not possible since Client's MAC is not seen by FGT through VPN tunnel. Also the network interface created for SSL VPN on client is ppp virtual interface and it has no MAC address.

You may explore other real ways to control the clients' authenticity, via FortiClient EMS or client certificate for example.

Hello,

 

I don't understand your question. It is possible if you use a firewall address that is MAC based and deny connections with a SSLVPN policy.

 

Best regards,
