Accessing IT4Innovations Internal Resources via VPN¶
To access IT4Innovations' resources and licenses, it is necessary to connect to its local network via VPN. IT4Innovations uses the FortiClient VPN software. For the list of supported operating systems, see the FortiClient Administration Guide.
Windows/Mac VPN Client Installation¶
Click the Download FortiClient button and select your OS.
Download just the FortiClient VPN, not the full FortiClient.
After successful installation, run FortiClient either directly, or by returning to the SSL-VPN Portal and clicking the Launch FortiClient button.
Working With Windows/Mac VPN Client¶
Before the first login, you must configure the VPN. In the New VPN Connection section, provide the name of your VPN connection and the following settings:
Optionally, you can describe the VPN connection and select Save Login under Authentication.
Save the settings, enter your login credentials and click Connect.
Make sure your username and password are correct. If you enter invalid credentials, FortiClient returns a general warning (-14).
You can disconnect by clicking the button or right clicking on the system tray icon.
You may use any open version of FortiClient, although OpenFortiGUI seems to work the best. Connection will work with following settings:
|DNS Servers||10.5.8.11, 10.5.8.22|
Linux VPN clients need to run under root. OpenFortiGUI uses sudo by default, be sure, that your user is allowed to use sudo.
