Help with L2TP/IPSec VPN using FortiClient software

Dear forum,



One of our clients manages all his connections in one place so he doesn't need different solutions for different sites.

(makes sense to me)

the software he is using is called Forticlient VPN.


Does anyone knows if it is possible to configure Forticlient VPN in manner to connect to a client to a site that uses  MX64?


I have couple of users there all working well when VPN client is configured in Windows built in mechanism.

However I was unable to find how to copnfigure the Forticleint VPN nor find info on the web. 

If it is possible at all - then main issue seems to be that I have no clue how the advanced settings should be set.

 - see below screenshot of advanced settings.

I don‘t think that Forti VPN client supports L2TP. At least the config looks like „standard“ IPSec.

Like @CptnCrnch says, I don't see anything in the screenshot mentioning L2TP.  So I would say no.

Hi @Captain ,


Were you able to figure put how to do it? Because I am also facing the same issue and wondering if there is a way out. Thanks!
