Forticlient DNS overrides

whenever I connect forticlient, it changed DNS IP for all network adapters LAN, Wifi other adapters to fortigaurd DNS IP.

I want to use custom DNS IP instead of this. Also how can stop it from changing DNS IP of other adapters.

Hello ceForti,


Can you please confirm what kind of VPN you are using (like a full tunnel or split tunnel)

Also, can you confirm if there is any DNS specified on the VPN settings?

Please provide the FortiGate firewall and Forticlient versions.

It's split tunnel. There's  no DNS specific settings in the VPN. Infact I have given as DNS is VPN settings at firewall config.

FG 6.4.5

Fclient - 6.4.3

I have the same issue.   Has anyone figured this out?

New Contributor III

not yet, regardless of any connection to any IP/firewall issue occurs. It's too annoying.
