Technical Tip How to downlod a certificate on FortiClient EMS cloud

We need to get a certificate on Forticlient EMS cloud. because we want to connect to our Fortigate and FortiClient EMS cloud (ZTNA)

 

We read a munual of FortiClient EMS cloud. The munaual said  "Configure FortiClient Cloud in Security Fabric > Settings > FortiClient Endpoint Management System (EMS) in FortiOS."

 

But our Fortigate cannot connect FortiClient EMS cloud. 

The error message is certificate authentication is failed .

So we want to download a certificate from FortClient EMS cloud in order to  import  forticlient EMS cloud certificate on our Fortigate.

 

Please tell me how to download a certificaate on FortiClient EMS Cloud?

I cannot find download botton on Forticlient EMS cloud.

Hello Anthony,

 

Thank you for the advise.

I tried it, but our Fortigate cannot connect Forticlient EMS Cloud.

And I read the manual. 

https://docs.fortinet.com/document/forticlient/7.0.7/ems-administration-guide/319002/configuring-ems...

 

However, the items in the sharing settings are different from the manual.

The item is following.

To configure an automated SSL certificate in FortiClient EMS:
Go to System Settings > EMS Settings.
Ensure that Remote HTTPS access and Redirect HTTP request to HTTPS are enabled. Externally access EMS via ports 80 and 443 is possible using the configured fully qualified domain name (FQDN).
In the SSL certificate field, click the Import SSL certificate button.
Select Automated.
In the Domain field, enter the EMS FQDN. For the Let's Encrypt server to issue the certificate, the public DNS server must resolve the EMS FQDN to the EMS public IP address.
In the Email field, enter a valid email address.
If desired, enable Auto Renew. When Auto Renew is enabled, FortiClient EMS automatically renews the certificate before expiry.
Select the checkbox to agree to Let's Encrypt's terms of service.
Click Import.
To manually upload an SSL certificate in FortiClient EMS:
Go to System Settings > EMS Settings.
In the SSL certificate field, click the Import SSL certificate button.
Select Upload.
In the Certificate field, browse to and select the desired certificate.
In the Certificate Password field, configure the desired password for the certificate.
Click Upload.
