VPN Setup

Windows 7 or higher 

For Windows 7 or higher use the FortiClient

Install with the default options. Just keep clicking next until it's done. (NOTE: The install process may take some time to download the package from their server. Just let it be until it prompts you.)

After you install start the FortiClient application and click on 'Remote Access


Then 'Configure VPN'.


When setting up the VPN client enter the following information:

Connection Name: UA VPN
Description: UA VPN
Remote Gateway:
Customize port: 443 (check the box)
Client Certificate: None
Authentication: Prompt on login
This Should be checked: Do not Warn Invalid Server Certificate
Click Save

When logging into this VPN you will be prompted to enter your UANET ID and password.

If you receive the error "Invalid Server Certificate" then click Yes.


First navigate to your Applications folder and find FortiClient 
After opening FortiClient, click on 'Remote Access'.
Then type in your UANET ID in the username field.
In the password field type your UANET ID password.
If you receive the error "Invalid Server Certificate" then click Continue.
After clicking continue, you should see a Green checkmark on a computer with ssl next to it.
Under the 'Remote Access' tab on the left side it should say VPN is connected.
