Fortinet VPN configuration for the LastPass Universal Proxy LDAPS protocol

    When using FortiOS Version 6.4.0 or higher and Amazon Corretto Java Runtime Environment version 8u272 or higher with LDAPS protocol, the Universal Proxy will not work, as this configuration enforces the usage of TLS version 1.3 between Fortinet and Universal Proxy. Universal Proxy version 2.2.0 supports TLS version 1.2 only. In order for Universal Proxy version 2.2.0. to work with the LDAPS protocol, use one of the following workarounds:
    • in the FortiOS change the highest supported TLS version to 1.2
    • downgrade Amazon Corretto Java Runtime Environment 17 to version prior to 8u272
