Exclamation Forticlient SSL VPN on Fedora 17

Hey,

I use the Forticlient SSL VPN for work. It connects OK on Fedora 17 but the server normally automatically pushes the routes to the client. This worked fine on F16 and below but appears broken in the new release.

Anyone else seeing this? Right now I have to run a script to add the routes after connecting.

Re: Forticlient SSL VPN on Fedora 17

I am looking at the connection log it tries to run a command like this to add the route :

route -n add -net 10.1.0.0 netmask 255.255.0.0 gw

this command seem to reply an error instead of doing what expected. Error message :

Syntaxe: inet_route [-vF] del {-host|-net} Cible[/prefix] [gw Gw] [metric M] [[dev] If]
inet_route [-vF] add {-host|-net} Cible[/prefix] [gw Gw] [metric M]
[netmask N] [mss Mss] [window W] [irtt I]
[mod] [dyn] [reinstate] [[dev] If]
inet_route [-vF] add {-host|-net} Cible[/prefix] [metric M] reject
inet_route [-FC] flush PAS supporté



Do you know what is wrong with this command ?

thanks !

Re: Forticlient SSL VPN on Fedora 17

OK I found the problem.

it is because a parameter is missing when running the route command.

The command parsing ifconfig is returning an empty string

In the file :
sysconfig.linux.sh

you will found a line like that :

addr=`ifconfig $ifn |grep "inet"|awk ' {print $2 }'| awk -F : '{ print $2}'`

replace it by :

addr=`ifconfig $ifn |grep "inet"|awk ' {print $2 }'`

(I just removed the last piped awk)


And now it will works normally. The ifconfig command out maybe changed recently

Re: Forticlient SSL VPN on Fedora 17

Hi Frood,

in my company have just installed the Fortinet system and deployed clients for windows. How can I retrieve the client for Fedora 17? Somewhere there are also instructions for how to set it.

Thanks.

It worked for me also. I have only modified sysconfig.linux.sh as suggested from jpprade. Thanks.

Re: Forticlient SSL VPN on Fedora 17

jpprade solution worked for me too, but when I stop the client I lose my DNS and have to restart my network services.

Nothing stands out in the log except help text for inet_route.

Anyone else experience something similar?
