I come back to you one week after.
And thank you for your so prompt feedback to my message, it is appreciable and important, I find that the team, a fortiori, is reactive.
We trust on Fortinet and largely/widely use your products in our company. And need sometimes quick support.
I read here and there on your forums that it would be solved from version 7.0.3 of the paid FortiClient, I have tested, and use the VPN tab only for free like on Windows version if that was the case, and on it it works indeed!
This is a (long) known bug fixed but not on FortiClient VPN free version where everyone still has it. I assume that the fix to apply should be exactly the same than paid version...
In any case, on our side, we don't know how to do except wait, and we find ourselves blocked and in a hole, especially this tool is for my work in professional context.
I've been impatient for weeks if not months, I've checked every day since your notice and this morning still no 7.0.7 release in sight.
I have nothing to lose, I finish by try the latest version of the paid client with advanced features to see if it works. And it does!
On the FortiClient paid version, the password is correctly saved (v7.0.6.0208)! Just remain to fix it also on the similar free version.
To help you in future development, I would also like to point out two problems (especially an important and annoying one) that I noticed with previous versions of FC VPN macOS (free version):
- when you are connected, and use and work on the connection, the bytes remain close to zero while you download and send data (does not matters you'll tell me, but the indication is always interesting to know if it is correct)
- more important, as soon as you launch the client installation, and the package and script run, even before the Wizard finishes it, Private Relay (major iCloud+ feature) is disabled and no longer works at all. We have to uninstall the client to get it working normally again. And then receive immediately the notification that it is active.
There's something written and happening that Private Relay doesn't like :( You can use either one, which is very annoying. Are you aware of this bug?
That Private Relay deactivates when using the Forti VPN is conceivable and completely acceptable, but when the connection is closed, it should reactivate but here not it doesn't. As soon as we launch the installation of the client, is compromised. Only uninstalling FortiClient VPN fix the problem.
Both the paid and free version are impacted by these.
However, the Windows version works fine, they have the exact same design but the macOS version seems a bit less on point :(
Is this release of 7.0.7 version imminent pls?
Many thanks for your effort,
