We are having a printer installed on a local PC of one employee, the same employee is using FortiClient vpn to connect into a Visual Machine on the company LAN. The employee has to print from the Virtual Machine on the company LAN to the printer behind SSL VPN. When I add the printer on the VMware machine, I can see the name of the printer on the printer list but the connection is timing out. I cannot even PING the IP address of the printer in the LAN while connected to SSL VPN. I get message request timed out. We are using FortiGate firewall version 7.2.4 build 1396
What is the issue that makes the LAN not to see the printer while connected into the SSL VPN?
Thank you very much for the information. I have created the Split Exclude for SSL VPN in the Fortigate firewall but now I cannot RDP into the VMware computer where I should be adding the printer and testing.
It looks like the Split Exclude for SSL VPN which I created is blocking the RDP connection.
Can you share the "route print" output from the test machine before and after VPN is connected & mention the VM IP also when connected with VPN you mentioned RDP not working but are you able to ping the VMware PC from the test machine?
