Hi @TBC 

 

Please issue the following command and retry to connect with Linux host once again:

config vpn ssl web portal
edit "portal name"
set skip-check-for-unsupported-os disable
end

 

This is to configure FortiGate in a way that OS check is mandatory, and do not skip OS version that FortiGate is unable to identify:

Hi @TBC 

 

If you are connecting to SSLVPN on FortiGate, you can restrict the specific OS version to connect. You may refer to the following guide:

https://docs.fortinet.com/document/fortigate/7.2.0/administration-guide/32970/configuring-os-and-hos...

 

Once you turn on the feature of OS check, technically all windows server would not be able to connect. That is because the Windows Server OS version do not match those in the list.

Thank you both so much! Both info have helped me further!
What surprises me a little is that when HostCheck is active, Linux systems can use the VPN client.
Is there also a corresponding possibility for Linux?

 

Many thanks
