The Fortinet provides two products, "FortiClient EMS" and "FortiClient VPN only". This package only correspond to "FortiClient VPN only" and your lastest version is at 03-09-2023.

If you are interested in "FortiClient EMS", I suggest following the AUR package 'forticlient' []

@dmoebius I got this from an Engineer from fortninet for testing. As we have lots of issues with fortivpn on linux. And this version works quite ok.

Today, I released the version in AUR. I am very grateful for the discussions held that contributed to the construction of this package.

@MikeTheRat I'll have to look up how to install PKGBUILDs since I'm fairly new to Arch. I got too bored with 'buntu/'dora derivatives, so I'm eager to learn the Arch way of doing things. But thank you for directing me the right way! I'll figure out PKGBUILDs and use harappan's method.

@jpierce.coder I'm now using harappan's PKGBUILD, here is direct link to it right in this thread: Still working after few system updates, I have no issues connecting at all.

Anyone have any updates on where to find a working forticlient-vpn package? I need it for work, but haven't been successful with any of the methods from this thread.

The only version that works for me is the unofficial from the comment from insan3 below. @insan3 : where did you get this version? I cannot find it in any of the official sources.

Thanks to contributors. I built my first Arch package and I'm now a happy camper using the "official" client

How do we know there is an updated version available and a rebuild is needed ? Does the client GUI check and inform ?

@Mitch Ah, my bad, missed a comment below. Yeah, I tried it, works like a charm! Thanks for pointing my attention on it.
