If you are on a University-owned laptop or PC the software may already be installed, please check your installed programs.

If FortiClient is not installed, and your computer is running Windows, please click on the Start button and type in Software, open the result for Software Center. Once there select Applications on the left side and look for Forticlient.


Personal Computers or Software Center does not list the program

If Software Center does not list the program or you are on a personal system, you can find the installer below. Choose the link corresponding to your operating system.

How do I configure FortiClient VPN?

After the connection is configured proceed to log in with your TRACKS credentials

 If the connection seems to stop at 40%, please look at your task bar in the bottom and check if there is a second instance of FortiClient asking you to accept a certificate, if it is, please accept the certificate.

If you are on MAC and having an issue, I've found the only thing that works show moreis uninstalling and reinstalling. I had to do this Tuesday and Wednesday, but Thursday it was working great. Before lunch today, Friday, it was working great but won't connect after lunch... so back to my uninstall/reinstall routine!
