VPN and ZTNA client question

hello - does anyone know if the ZTNA client is the same forticlient installer, or same base, as the normal or free VPN client?

we currently use the windows store forticlient shim or plugin to be able to use the built in windows VPN settings. it works well and is responsive. every time we've tried the full fat free forticlient it always seems so slow, not in passing traffic but in response and interactions with it; it just feels like a sluggish and clunky app, maybe because of all the features inside it?

does anyone know if the ZTNA client just the classic full forticlient app with another feature enabled or is is a different app or codebase?

Hello @ragnar21 

Thank you for posting your query. 

Yes the store app is different code and more lightweight and does not support ZTNA features. For ZTNA you need Full Version of FCT with ZTNA license. 

does this help and give sense ?
