Forticlient VPN on Android 8 not working

Hello

 

I am having a Samsung Galaxy S9+ with Android 8 and FortiClient VPN app is not working properly. Immediately after connecting I get disconnected again. On other phones it is working fine. Do any others have problems with Android 8, or have a solution for my problem?

 

thx for help!

With FortiClient-v500-build0177-release.apk connected to FortiOS 5.6.3 is working with PKI-Auth and Password-Auth on Android 8.0 on my Galaxy S9+

Given the poor usability and stability of Android FortiClient, I doubt they will fix it anytime soon.

Which type of vpn are you using? IPsec or SSLVPN? I have a galaxy S8 with android 8 and i have no problems with vpn.

Hey Guys,

 

i'm using a S7 edge with Android 7.0 and FortiClient SSLVPN without any issues. Same client and same config on S9+ with Android 8.0 is the same as skyllas. Shortly after connecting successfully you got disconnected. The firewall-logs shows, that the tunnel is up without any issues and shutting down only seconds after.

 

Kind regards,

also using SSL, and since the S9+ with Android 8.0 I have the issues. the exact same SSLVPN configuration worked on other phones before

Hi,

 

Have you guys read this?

 

FortiClient 5.4.0 (Android) Release Notes:

https://docs.fortinet.com/d/forticlient-5.4.0-android-release-notes

 

Android 8 officially is not supported, yet.

 

Best Regards,

Hey,

 

ok... Oreo is not mentioned in the release notes but:

 

They are fixing issues with crashes in "Oreo" in the last version:

And the current Version is 5.4.2 and not 5.4.0.

 

Regards,
