Forticlient and MacOS Big Sur support? Kextless mode

    Hi,

    does anyone know about Forticlient status regarding MacOS Big Sur and its kextless mode?
    Which version of Forticlient will support this? When is it planned to be release?
    And is there any beta program so we can test it?

    Thanks for your help
    BR

    If you're only using Forticlient to connect to your VPN, in macOS Big Sur you no longer need it. The built-in Cisco IPsec VPN of Big Sur will now connect and correctly establish a tunnel to your Fortinet VPN and it's very stable and reliable. I never managed to to this in Catalina, but it seems Apple may have corrected or changed the Cisco IPSec code in Big Sur and it's now working like a charm. I tried it yesterday and it worked flawlessly.
