One of our clients requires to use Fortinet to access their servers.


On Centos 8 Stream, we cannot successfully established the connection.


Here are the logs:

It works perfectly on Windows 10.


Why do we receive a non-IPv4 compliant network address?


(EROR? what language is it? I'd either look for "err", "error" but not "eror"..)

A reply from the support would be appreciated.

The client can't be used on the most used linux OSes (RHEL 7/8 + Centos 7/8Stream)

If you need support, you need to open a ticket with support. This is a community forum not a support channel.
