Checklist for configuring Fortinet VPN

    About this task:

    Check the following configuration of your SSL-VPN authentication, using Universal Proxy as an LDAP service.

    Note: You need to have an LDAP server, Universal Proxy is not an LDAP server, it is a proxy service between your firewall and the LDAP authentication server.

    The following is an example LDAP server connection, in User & Device > LDAP Servers menu of the Fortinet FortiGate SSL VPN administration portal.

    • The Username field value must be the same as the admin user’s distinguishedName field value on the Active Directory server.

      Result: When it configured properly the Connection Status will be Successful.

    • To configure a User Group that points to this server see Steps 6 and 7 in Fortinet VPN configuration for the LastPass Universal Proxy LDAP.
