[SSL-VPN] Upgrade from FortiClient 7.0.5 to 7.0.6: SSL stuck at 40%
So we started updating the free FortiClient for Windows 10 Enterprise from release 7.0.5 to 7.0.7. Afterwards while connecting with SSL to the FortiGate, the client hangs at 40%. We downgraded to 7.0.6 and still the clients hang at 40%. Finally we downgraded to 7.0.5 and SSL VPN works again. To summarize:
FortiClient version <= 7.0.5: SSL connection works
FortiClient version >= 7.0.6: SSL clients hangs at 40%
In my experience, FortiClient VPN tends to hang at 40% if there is a certificate issue - meaning the FortiGate presents a server certificate the FortiClient might not trust for some reason (such as self-signed):
Can you check if a second FortiClient icons appears in the task bar?
The certificate warning might have only popped up in the background, and to proceed you would have to bring the window forward and click on 'Yes'.
