Fortivpn-cli or another option that supports sso/saml?



We have been battling this Forticlient VPN "white screen of death" issue as reported on:


No matter what we try, the issue persists. Logs show nothing weird, we are really lost at this point. 


I wonder if there is a fortivpn-cli client (command line) that supports sso/saml? Does anyone know any approach that can be used in Ubuntu 18.04 via command line to connect to a Fortinet VPN using sso/saml?


hi there,

If I understand your question, you are after doing a sso/saml connection over CLI?
I don't think that's possible.
Most of the time, you need to interact with your SP/IDP over https.
Here are some details about LInux FCT CLI commands.

Thank you,

The thing is that the forticlient VPN (gui) is not working for us. It shows a white screen an all the systems we have installed it. We have been looking after fixing this for almost two months and we have been unsuccessful. Also, there are no documents or related cases with a solution to this.
