SSL VPN host compatibility list

It is recommended to verify the accuracy of the GUID for the software you are using for SSL VPN host check. The following Knowledge Base article at http://kb.fortinet.com/ describes how to identify the GUID for antivirus and firewall products: How to add non listed 3rd Party AntiVirus and Firewall product to the FortiGate SSL VPN Host check.

After verifying GUIDs, you can update GUIDs in FortiOS using this command:

config vpn ssl web host-check-software

Following is an example of how to update the GUID for AVG Internet Security 2017 on Windows 7 and Windows 10 by using the FortiOS CLI.

The GUIDs in this example are only for AVG Internet Security 2017 on Windows 7 and Windows 10. The GUIDs might be different for other versions of the software and other operation systems.

To update GUIDs in FortiOS:

  1. Use the config vpn ssl web host-check-software command to edit the AVG-InternetSecurity-AV variable to set the following GUID for AVG Internet Security 2017: 4D41356F-32AD-7C42-C820-63775EE4F413.
  2. Edit the AVG-Internet-Security-FW variable to set the following GUID:

757AB44A-78C2-7D1A-E37F-CA42A037B368.
