Forticlient – SSLVPN .deb packages


Try the brand-new open-source OpenFortiGUI as replacement for the Forticlient.

Forticlient – SSLVPN is a VPN Client to connect to Fortigate Devices with minimal effort, packaged here for Ubuntu and Debian.

Officially there is only a generic tar.gz package available. As I use Ubuntu most the time, I decided to build .deb packages for 32/64bit Ubuntu with a nice desktop icon to start : )

This packages should also work on debian, but i did not test this on myself now (will follow).

For upgrades just download the new package and install it, the package manager will do the upgrade for you.

I will share my packages here for you to download:

    Forticlient SSLVPN 4.4.2327 64bit has stopped working for me on Ubuntu 14.04 (can’t connect to VPN anymore).
    Is this a known issue?
    Is there a fix planned?

    Using the 4.4.2327-2 build in a docker container running on a windows host. Works great. Thank you!

    Your software saved my skin! Thanks a bundle!! Misplaced my windows laptop on a day I needed to vpn into work because of snow. I used to be an IT person… in the 90s… on windows… Obsolete and out of my element, I got a serious crash course in ubuntu, emphasis on crash. I was able to get the vpn up and running in no time flat. I had other issues with dns being blocked by the firewall for only my machine. If you’ve ever heard of a fortinet firewall doing that to only ubuntu boxes, let me know! Either way this vpn client rocks!
