How to setup a VPN with IPSec on IGEL OS?

Hi, is there a possibility for an Igel to setup a VPN with IPSec? Open VPN does not support this. I need a single client first to setup a VPN to our Fortigate before connect to the internal network.

Learn more, read the entire thread inside the IGEL Community o Slack

There’s a Fortinet CP available.

Or activate the Open Connect under “features” and try it that way.

Nice! Where can I find the Fortinet CP?

Open a support ticket and ask for it. On IGEL OS 11 you need an EMP license.

No, it is still OS 10

ok, same way regarding the ticket πŸ™‚

There is no other way for me to test it before I have to open a support ticket at my customers name? πŸ˜‡ During my holidays I’d like to try something but I can’t follow up the ticket because I cannot access their mailbox

I received the CP but when only using the Forti profile from the zip I get a desktop icon for starting the client but when I also connect the default company profile, the only icon is the connect to desktop icon from the company profile and the Forti profile is gone. What am I doing wrong?

Multiple profiles should not be the problem i guess but because I have no further experience with implementing a Custom Partition I have to rely on the expertise of my fellow Community experts

@member do you have an idea?

@member I’m on a customer POV, but I can try. Can you share a few screenshots about the behavior you are facing? Are they maybe more than one Custom Partition profiles assigned? We are still speaking about OS10, right?

Yeah, still OS 10 and only one customer partition. I try to make screenshots the day after tommorrow

First is only FortiClient CP and the result on the screen, second is with the company profile (connection to RDSH) with the result on screen

Got it. Can you please check if on one of this profiles, the checkbox overwrite sessions is set?

Damn, could it be that simpel? Will take a look right away

It mightπŸ˜‰

:man-facepalming: I totally overlooked that option (I should had known from the training). Yep, that’s it


Donβ€˜t mind! That happens quite often (even to Igel employees like me).

Thanks of course for the (mental) support

The Custom Partition thing is really nice. Remote workers can now connect with their AD credentials with the FortiClient and after this they start the same desktop (through the broker) as internally. My customer is very satisfied with this solution. They only have to sign in twice at the moment (VPN and RDHS) but I will look if SSO is possible for the RDSH but as I said; it is a ‘nice to have’ πŸ’ͺ

Thatβ€˜s impressive!! πŸ‘πŸ‘

With many thanks for all the people here; there is no better Knowledge Base as the Igel Community πŸ˜‡

Does anyone know how to add a extra profile in the partitions parameter? For example: fctssl_<value> where value is the extra profile. thanks in advance.

Not sure what you mean tbh. can you describe what you are trying to achieve?

I want to add a extra connection profile in the Forticlient fot all users.

Will take a look tomorrow if I can find an option

Thanks in advance

Hi Henk-Jan, Did you already take a look on this one? Thanks in Advance.

Sorry, not yet. Have a week of big troubles at a customers location and I totally forgot (and didn’t had the time also). Do my best to take a look asap for you. Again, my apologies.

Thank you.
