    Good morning all,

    I installed the FortiClient on servers and I want the VPN tunnel (IPSEC or SSL) to be established on restart without human intervention. I performed the configurations on the FortiGate, FortiClient and FortiClient-EMS.
    At the moment I manage to reestablish the automatic tunnel when connectivity is restored.

    Anyone know if it is possible to do this?

    Hi Steven,

    You want to configure the "Always on" option. I don't know how to do it while writing this message but I know that the option exists in Forticlient at least.

    Hi Per,

    indeed the always up functionality already exists.
    What I would like is for the VPN connection to be established on its own when the computer restarts without even the user logging in.

    Steven,

    Does the always on-option require userlogon? If so, yes, this is not a valid solution. Is this windows or Linux Servers? I've managed to build an auto-dialup configuration on Linux servers but to do the same on Windows you got to ask someone else how to do it :)

    /P

    Per,
    Yes "Always-on" require user login. It is windows server.
    Ok many thanks for all.

    Windows 10 can do it with Certificate based Authentication before logon.

    Also I read Windows 10 Allways On VPN can reconnect seamlessly in the background.
