FortiClient 6.2.0+, FortiClient EMS 6.2.0+, and FortiOS 6.2.0+ introduce a new licensing structure for managing endpoints running FortiClient 6.2.0+. See Upgrading from previous FortiClient versions for more information on how the licensing changes upon upgrade to 6.2.0+. Fortinet no longer offers a free trial license for ten connected FortiClient endpoints on any FortiGate model running FortiOS 6.2.0+. EMS 6.2.8 supports a trial license. With the EMS free trial license, you can provision and manage FortiClient on ten Windows, macOS, and Linux endpoints and ten Chromebook endpoints indefinitely.
FortiClient 6.2.8 offers a free VPN-only version that you can use for VPN-only connectivity to FortiGate devices running FortiOS 5.6 and later versions. You can download the VPN-only application from FortiClient.com. You cannot use the VPN-only client with the FortiClient Single Sign On Mobility Agent (SSOMA). To use VPN and SSOMA together, you must purchase an EMS license.
