Forticlient Offline Installer
currently I can not find the installer offline anywhere official.You can point me to the official download link of the offline package.The online installer does NOT RESPECT EXPLICIT PROXY CONFIGURATION, it only works with transparent proxy, a very serious error for fortigate.Thanks in advance.
Thing is I cannot find official download link for the latest macOS version of FortiClient VPN offline installer. The latest I could find is _126.96.36.1997_macosx.dmg but substituting the newest version 188.8.131.525 in gets me a 404. The online installer downloads a dmg upon start so it must be from somewhere.
If you don't have a support account and can't direct download it, the online installer should probably cache a copy of the full install package locally (at least it does with Windows). So you may have some luck there.
I guess if you have a subscription and you can access that link, that link is also directly usable by others, it's just not on the surface web (or how would the online installer download it?). If it's not... well I might just give up \_(ツ)_/
See my Google Drive Link: It has the offline installers, is there a specific version you are looking for ? The new download links for offline installers are not direct to file, so you will need to us an alternative location. here is a direct link example once you are logged in to the support portal:
Another product based around the Bitdefender engine, again with a little extra added, eScan has been a regular entrant in our tests for many years, having missed only one test in the last five years. This month saw another fairly dramatic redesign, timed to coincide with the release of Windows 8. The installer provided was a jumbo 397MB, and ran through the standard steps to complete in a minute or so, with updates then taking another half minute to finish off the process. On one occasion the updating GUI opened but then vanished immediately and could not be reopened, but the process seemed to complete successfully and on restarting the main interface all was set back to normal again. No reboot was needed to complete the set-up.
Kingsoft, hailing from China, was a fairly regular participant in our comparatives for a spell of several years until going rather quiet around the middle of last year. The vendor now returns with an all-new product, boasting the Avira engine under the covers. The 84MB installer ran through very speedily with minimal interaction, with updates also extremely rapid, the whole job completing in little over half a minute on some attempts. Other attempts were slowed down by the updater crashing, which was clearly indicated and seemed fairly graceful, everything working again when it was retried.
Another new name for our lists, we first heard from MSecure Data Labs just a few weeks prior to the deadline for this test, but the company has apparently been in business for over ten years, focusing on providing easy to use anti virus and web security solutions. The product incorporates the Ikarus engine. The installer provided was compact at 16MB, with updates of 89MB also sent in for use in the RAP tests. The install process follows the standard path and completes very quickly, with updates also extremely speedy, the entire process not needing much more than half a minute to complete.
The developers at Norman promised an all-new product this month, which was provided as a 258MB installer. This ran through quite a number of steps before it finally got down to business, and when it seemed complete it still took some time before the interface was accessible. Running updates was similarly fiddly, with messages that claimed a reboot was needed overlapping with the update process, and a few cycles of reboot-update-reboot-update were needed to get it all set up and working.
Another solution including the Bitdefender engine, this time in conjunction with AVG, TrustPort has been a consistently high performer in our tests for some time now, generally vying with a couple of other multi-engine solutions for the top right corner spot on our RAP charts. The installer provided was reasonably compact for a multi engine product, measuring only 216MB, and ran through in a fair few steps in around a minute. Part of the install process was a period of updating, but after the initial reboot that was requested at the end of the set-up, it was clear that things were not fully up to date and more downloads were needed, adding another minute or so on average to the total install time.
as usual, AVG provided its premium business suite for testing, with the installer weighing in at a fairly hefty 142MB and the set-up process running through in a fair number of steps, including offers to install a security toolbar and change the default search provider. The whole process was fairly speedy though, completing in just a few minutes, and later online updates were fast too, averaging only three minutes.
Another from the Preventon/VirusBuster stable, Digital Defender is one of the older names on the list, and in this test it appears in both Premium and Pro versions. Differences between the two are minimal though: they use the same installer, and the additional components provided in the Premium edition are activated by the application of a licence key. The set-up, from the 89MB install package, ran through quickly and smoothly, and updates seemed reliable, taking around seven minutes on average.
F-Secure often submits two fairly similar products for our tests, resulting in a rather complex history on our website, but this month only one was entered. It came as a 64MB installer with a 145MB updater executable. The set-up was fairly fast and simple, needing a reboot to complete. Online updates were mostly reliable, but took up to 20 minutes for initial runs to complete. On occasion it seemed to be stuck in a loop, with progress bars hitting 100% multiple times and the process apparently restarting immediately.
Kaspersky once again submitted both business and consumer products for testing, with the corporate version up first. It came as a fairly hefty 248MB installer, with offline updates fetched using a special tool which builds a local mirror of update server content. The set-up process ran through quite a few steps, including building a list of trusted applications on the local system, but took no more than two minutes. Initial online updates averaged around 12 minutes.
The second product from Kaspersky this month is pretty similar in most respects, using the same mirror of updates for the RAP tests, but the installer was noticeably smaller at just 78MB. After 30 seconds or so preparing to run, the actual process only required a couple of clicks (an option to display more advanced set-up controls was provided), and the whole thing took not much more than a minute, with no need to reboot. Updates took around 15 minutes on average for the initial run.
Optenet is a fairly rare participant in our tests, with only two appearances so far. The product includes the Kaspersky engine, but has yet to show results that reach the rarefied heights we would expect to see from such a source. The installer measured 158MB including updates, and took only a few clicks and a minute or so to get set up, with a reboot needed to complete. Online updates were slow and hard to keep track of, with only an on-hover measure from the system tray icon to indicate that the job was still ongoing; there seemed to be no sign of progress anywhere in the main interface. As far as we could tell, the job averaged at least 25 minutes over the several installs performed.
Another Preventon/VirusBuster offering, again with the slightly smaller 85MB installer promising a slightly smoother run. Installation was, as expected, fairly smooth and simple, with updates taking seven minutes or so on average, and the older-style interface proving fairly clear and usable, with limited but sensible options that were easy to find and operate.
A much more familiar name, TrustPort is a regular in our tests, with a strong record of high scores. The latest version was provided as a 226MB installer, which ran through the standard set of questions, completing in under a minute with a reboot required at the end. Updates were a little unpredictable, their duration increasing the further we got from the date the installer was put together. The first run took less than five minutes, but later ones were much longer, with an overall average of over 20 minutes. The interface is a little unusual, with scattered components and no real main control tool, but after a little exploration it soon becomes simple to operate, providing a thorough set of controls.
The set-up runs along very familiar lines, the installer measuring 87MB, taking only a few steps and not much more than a minute to complete, with no reboot; updates average seven minutes. All the usual issues were observed, and everything else was as expected too, with mid-range speeds, overheads and resource usage, a fair, but not too heavy impact on our set of tasks.
