SSL VPN using web and tunnel mode

In this example, you will allow remote users to access the corporate network using an SSL VPN, connecting either by web mode using a web browser or tunnel mode using FortiClient.

Web mode allows users to access network resources, such as the AdminPC used in this example.

For users connecting via tunnel mode, traffic to the Internet will also flow through the FortiGate, to apply security scanning to this traffic. During the connecting phase, the FortiGate will also verify that the remote user’s antivirus software is installed and up-to-date.
