Linux Fortinet VPN Client

Ever since the company I work for changed to a Fortinet VPN I have been looking for a Linux client that will work with Ubuntu. Today I found one:

forticlientsslvpn_linux_4.0.2010.tar.gz

Install and use instructions can be found here.

    Just to confim that the same package is working very well in Mint Linux 12 64 Bit version so it must work on all 64 Bit Linux

  7. Dear Paul,
    I'm using Mint Linux 12 64 bit too,
    these are what happen when I try to run forticlient:
    (forticlientsslvpn:1855): GdkPixbuf-WARNING **: Cannot open pixbuf loader module file '/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/gdk-pixbuf-2.0/2.10.0/loaders.cache': No such file or directory

    Have you idea what kind of problem it could be ?
    On forticlient forum they say that is not for 64 bit.
    I'm not a tech guy so I can't help you
    Thanks

    1. install 32-bit libralies.
      in cmd line....
      sudo apt-get install ia32-libs-gtk

      i think, you get well.

      if you get tunnel but traffic is not going through the tunnel,
      plz see this note on Facebook.

  8. Giovanni, I'm sorry I cannot help you. I haven't used a Fortinet VPN for over a year and do not have one to even test against.
