Forticlient 5.6.2 blocks *.local domains as 'newly observed'.
I can't log into VMWare console now.
Also, there's no category for this to be allowed. Where in the EMS server is the setting to "allow" or "warn"? EMS server is not completely up to date.
Go to Solution.
It's a bad known issue, with no solution posted yet that I'm aware of.
See https://forum.fortinet.com/tm.aspx?m=154312 for a recent discussion.

Looks like FortiClient 5.6.3 just got released.
Under "Resolved Issues" it has:
460107 Client is blocking Newly Observed Domains but web filter categories are off.
Still a page and a half of "Known Issues", including some I'm not sure about like:
447838 b1151: Cannot log in SSL VPN from FortiClient web console input username/password
but directly command in PC cmd window log in successfully.
I see that too. Thanks for the update.
I've started a case while I test with 5.6.3
My updates will be in the thread you mention above...
We gave up and had to turn off all "Malicious" site blocking, relying on the FortiGates to block those sites instead.
Fine for in-office, leaves the machines more vulnerable when they take them home.
There are other site blocking systems protecting those mobile devices. Security has layers like an onion.
