Hello

You can download FortiClient VPN from here:

https://www.fortinet.com/support/product-downloads#vpn

Alternatively, in case you have Linux you can use fortisslvpn plugin for NetworkManager available on many official Linux repos, it works very good as well.

Thanks

 

I've done this but there seems to be no CLI item available to get the connection to work. A full Windows client is available but this is not what I'm looking for.

I want to open the VPN connection, download something and close the connection.

Hi @ETSoft,

 

FortiClientTools are available to be downloaded from support.fortinet.com. I can see it there. https://community.fortinet.com/t5/FortiClient/Technical-Tip-How-to-use-FortiClient-SSL-VPN-from-the-...

It is indeed mentioned there, but if you go to the downloads via the link at the bottom of the item it is not available. The client software does not include the mentioned program.

Could it be a regional thing so I cannot see it?

@ETSoft, on support.fortinet.com, under folder  /FortiClient/Windows/v7.00/7.2/7.2.3/ , I can see file  FortiClientTools_7.2.3.0929.zip.

Don't you?
