Installing the FortiClient SSL VPN client on Macintosh:
Supported Operating systems: Mac OS X v10.6 Snow Leopard or higher.
On the computer or device that needs the VPN client, open a browser and navigate to http://www.forticlient.com/
Select the version compatible with your computer, and click on the Download button:
Double click on the forticlientsslvpn.pkg to run the installer. Install the application as normal for your system.
When installation is complete, go to the Applications list and find and double-click on the forticlientsslvpn application:
(You may drag it to your dock if you'd like to have it listed there)
To create a new VPN connection profile, click on the Settings… button
In the settings panel, enter the following information:
Server: vpn.naropa.edu : 10443
User: (your naropa domain user name. Ex: if your email address id firstname.lastname@example.org, enter "jdoe")
Password: (leave blank in this window)
All other fields can be left unchanged or blank. Click on the Done button to complete configuration.
Now in the FortiClient SSL VPN panel, enter your Naropa domain / email password, and click on the Connect button.
A certificate warning will be presented. Click on the Continue button:
The VPN link should be established, and your system will connect to the Naropa VPN. Once connected the FortiClient SSL VPN application will display "Tunnel running" in the Status field. The Sent bytes and Receive bytes should be increasing while the VPN link is up. Leave this window open for as long as you need the VPN to be connected (you may minimize the window as desired). Clicking on the Stop button, or closing the FortiClient SSL VPN window will terminate the VPN connection.
Please keep in mind that once you’re on the VPN your system (whatever computer you’re using to connect) is logically attached to our network. If that system isn’t secure (with the most recent OS updates installed, etc.), and actively running some kind of AntiVirus software (certainly in the case of Windows systems at least), then you’re placing our entire network at risk.
If your system is ever found to be compromised in any way, or otherwise deemed a security risk, your VPN privileges will be revoked and your system will be blocked from connecting to the Naropa network. Please understand the security risk this poses and act responsibly.
Please don’t use the VPN for anything more than you need – only connect to the VPN when necessary.
The whole process can be a bit technical the first few times, so please try to test the VPN and RDC ahead of time, before you actually need to use the service, and famil
