I have same error with Windows 10 / Forticlient 7.0.2.0090. I got connected with the VPN server but when I pinging a IP address in the network I have connected with via VPN, I got the blue screen with the same ndis.sys error and then reboots.
Same. It works fine on my home desktop, but my work laptop (where I need it the most) does not work. I can connect just fine without issue 99% of the time, but as soon as I even ping an IP through the VPN it bluescreens.
Same issue with all WIN10 version (from 20H2 to 22H2)
--> latest updates (all softwares, O365, Win10)
--> latest drivers (HP Elitebook 650 G8,G9 and G10)
We have this problem since Forticlient 7.0.3, same issue with 7.0.6, 7.0.7 and 7.0.8.
BSOD appears only when user are using VPN (can be up to 5 crashes in a row) and not possible to replace by 'VPN only' client, EMS version is protecting our devices.
Since the first issue, answer from Fortinet support is "config is good, wait for the next version"...so now we are waiting the 7.0.9 (end june). If same problem with 7.0.9 we'll put the entire Fabric in the trash.
