FortiClient increase timeout ssl-vpn via client

glitchlist Uncategorized Leave a Comment

default session timeout of an ssl vpn over FortiClient is 28800sec. (8hrs).
After the ssl vpn is established the countdown start and you cannot maintain them alive with a ping -t or something other. So after 8hrs the FortiGate kill the tunnel.

To increase the aut-timeout do this:

  1. Login via ssh to the Fortigate,
  2. Run:
    config vdom
    edit root
    config vpn ssl settings
    set auth-timeout 83400 (24hrs….)
  3. Login to Forticlient and enjoy 24h-ssl-tunnel-nonstop 🙂
