Hi, I have to connect to a server of a client that is behind a Forti VPN. However, I need to use it from a headless server. I have found that there is the possibility to install for Ubuntu a CLiclient and I have followed the instructions here https://repo.fortinet.com. I was able to install it correctly but now I can't use it. I have already used the GUI on Windows for connecting to several VPNs, like my university or other clients.
I tried to add the configuration with the command "forticlient vpn edit myvpn", but it says
FortiClient SSLVPN is unavailable: FortiClient VPN trial has expired. Please contact your administrator or connect to EMS for license activation.
I don't know what that means at all.
I tried to do "forticlient vpn connect the.ip.to.connect -u username -p -s -w -a" but the answer is always the same.
How can I connect to that VPN? The configuration is simple, I have user, password, IP to connect, port 443, no certificate and that's all. Maybe I using the wrong tool, it is not very simple to understand the documentation. Thank you
I think you installed the wrong package this seems to be the paid version which required EMS. What you can try is to download the rpm or deb packet for the free version "VPN Only" from this on a windows PC link: https://www.fortinet.com/support/product-downloads
From there you can connect to your linux box via filezila and then you transfer the file.After transfer you can install it with package manager command. i tried with wget but was not getting the correct file
