vpn KillSwitch

Hi,

 

We use the free version of vpn forticlient 6.4.7 and my boss ask me if there is a way to activate a killswitch function on it.
I searched about that but i didn't find an answer.

 

Do you know if it is possible  on free version ? did you tried successfully a third app (and which one ) ?

Is it available natively in full version ?

 

Thanks for your answers.

Best regards, marc.

We will not find an answer until you explain what you mean with "kill switch".

 

Well, tunnels via FC need to be opened manually (usually), so the user decides when to connect. Are you thinking about the VPN gateway side? How to disconnect a particular VPN user manually from the gateway side?

Hi marcofr,

Second to Ede. Can you clarify 'kill switch'?


If your 'kill switch' meaning disable/shut down FCT when something happen, there is no such options in both free and paid version FCT.

If your 'kill switch' meaning automatic drop/disconnect VPN connection when user is in-office-network, then it is do-able with paid version FCT via disabling to off-fabric profile, or 'Auto Connect Only When Off-Fabric'.
