SSLVPN with .3 IP addresss 0 bytes



on our FortiGate 6.0.6, a few FortiClient VPN 6.0.5 users reported, that when they are assigned an IP address with x.y.z.3 at the end nothing works. If a user gets x.y.z.1, x.y.z.2, x.y.z.4, x.y.z.5, etc. all the corporate resources are fine.


We've noticed that with two different values of z, and with two different users, so it's not a user problem.


I go to Fortigate Monitor -> Firewall User Monitor, and I see Traffic Volume equaling 0 for such a user.


The SSL VPN Portal Source IP Pool has an address range x.y.z.0/24. 


We think of upgrading the Forticlient to the latest 6.0.x version (what's the latest?), but it's not available for download. What would you suggest?

Please check and make sure there is no IP pool entry or VIP with the x.y.z.3 address.

See my Fortigate related scripts at:


No, these addresses are reserved for SSL VPN, so it's not among Virtual IPs or IP Pools.


Currently we're planning to invite them to office and update their Forticlients.
