    Set Remote Device Type to FortiClient VPN for OS X, Windows, and Android.

  3. Set the Incoming Interface to wan1

    Set Authentication Method to Pre-shared Key.

    Enter a pre-shared key. This pre-shared key is a credential for the VPN and should differ from the user password.

  4. Set Local Interface to lan.

    Set Local Address to the local network address.

    Enter a Client Address Range for VPN users.

  5. Select Client Options.

  6. After you create the tunnel, a summary page lists the objects that have been added to the FortiGate’s configuration.
