Forticlient 7.0.7 : VPN before Windows logon popup information
Hi, I have installed Forticlient 7.0.7 on several domain PCs used off site connected to a Forticlient EMS 7.0.7 server. I set that when the PC is turned on, without the user having to perform any interaction, the VPN IPSEC starts automatically and connects to our Fortigate. In this way users can login to the domain without having to manually connect the VPN. Here the tunnel configuration:
My problem is this: the PC is shared by many operators who were used to go to the Forticlient shield symbol on the Windows 10 login screen, select the only available VPN tunnel and enter their domain credentials. With the automation that I have configured many users do not wait those 15 seconds necessary for the VPN to go up automatically and go to force the VPN from the shield, creating problems with the VPN connection since the PC tries the connection by itself but at the same time the operator force VPN from login button.
With this configuration, when the IPSEC VPN goes up at login, a popup similar to this appears (not always) for an instant with something like "IKE negotation successfully", it disappears but then absolutely nothing is shown that makes the user understand that he is connected to the VPN:
and when the operators perform the shift change they keep disconnecting and reconnecting the VPN. The Ipsec VPN is not nominative, it is a service to connect PCs. The employees don't know the key.
When the PC is turned on and the VPN goes up it doesn't even show "Connected" on the shield screen and this misleads the person at the PC:
My request is this: is it possible to show a symbol, anything at windows 10 login which shows unequivocally that the VPN Ipsec with the Forticlient is up?
In the video we also see that the VPN Tunnel section is not updated with "Connected" and there is nothing to indicate that we are in VPN, except for a very brief change of the network icon. And back to my problem: "is it possible to show a symbol, anything at windows 10 login which shows unequivocally that the VPN Ipsec with the Forticlient is up?"
