Using FortiClient VPN for secure remote access to an office network

 
Using FortiClient VPN for secure remote access to an office network
Problem
You need a secure communication channel between FortiClient on a remote user’s computer, and the office so that the user can access work network resources. You also want to require individual IPsec VPN uses to authenticate to get access.
Solution
Create an IPsec VPN between FortiClient on the remote user’s PC and the office FortiGate unit that uses XAuth to authenticate the remote user. The remote user’s IP address changes so you need to configure a dialup IPsec VPN on the FortiGate unit. As well the remote user must start the VPN because the office FortiGate unit doesn’t know the user’s IP address.
