FortiClient SSL session continues to run after user logs out

We have FortiClient configured via EMS to run before login, so that users are shown the FortiClient login screen rather than the Windows one.

This is all working correctly.

Once User 1 logs out, their SSL VPN session is not terminated. If User 2 then logs in via the same login page, the FortiClient program still shows the tunnel as being connected via the User 1 username.

I think it's the same issue as this person, but they never received a reply:

What's the best way to accomplish this?

Hello @UEC ,


                Thank you for using the Community Forum. Could you please provide the following information


- When the user logs out from the SSL-VPN, do you  see the logged off event in the SSL-VPN event log for the respective user?


- When you  check on the firewall, do you see an existing session present under the SSL-VPN monitor?


- Could you  please run the following command on the FortiGate console, before and after the VPN connection of a particular user


get vpn ssl monitor
