SSL VPN (5.6.1)

SSL VPN (5.6.1)

New SSL VPN features added to FortiOS 5.6.1.

Added a button to send Ctrl-Alt-Delete to the remote host for VNC and RDP desktop connections (401807)

Previously, users were unable to send Ctrl-Alt-Delete to the host machine in an SSL VPN remote desktop connection.

FortiOS 5.6.1 adds a new button that allows users to send Ctrl-Alt-Delete in remote desktop tools (also fixes 412456, preserving the SSL VPN realm after session timeout prompts a logout).

Improved SSL VPN Realms page (0392184)

Implemented minor functional changes to the dialog on the SSL VPN > Realms page:

l URL preview uses info message similar to that seen on the SSL VPN settings dialog. l Virtual-Host input is now visible when set in the CLI. l Added help tooltip describing what the virtual-host property does.

Customizable FortiClient Download URL in SSL VPN Web Portal (437883)

A new attribute, customize-forticlient-download-url, is added to vpn.ssl.web.portal.

The added attribute indicates whether to support a customizable download URI for FortiClient. This attribute is disabled by default. If enabled, two other attributes, windows-forticlient-download-url and macosforticlient-download-url, will appear through which the user can customize the download URI for

FortiClient.

Syntax

config vpn ssl web portal edit <portal> set customize-forticlient-download-url {enable | disable} set windows-forticlient-download-url <custom URL for Windows> set macos-forticlient-download-url <custom URL for Mac OS>

next

end

Added split DNS support for SSL VPN (434512)

Split DNS is now supported for SSL VPN. This feature allows you to specify which domains will be resolved by the DNS server specified by the VPN while all other domains will be resolved by the locally specified DNS.

This feature is useful in both Enterprise and MSP scenarios (when hosting multiple SSL VPN portals).

Syntax config vpn ssl web portal

SSL VPN (5.6.1)

edit <name> config split-dns-domains edit 1 set domains “abc.com, cde.com” set dns-server1 192.168.1.1 set dns-server2 192.168.1.2 set ipv6-dns-server1 2000:2:3:4::5 set ipv6-dns-server2 2000:2:3:4::6

next …

end

end
