    fortinet to force ipads to use vpn when offsite

    Does anyone have any experience with fortinet? To be more specific experience locking down ipads so that all internet traffic must go through a vpn when offsite?

    Thanks,

    Wes

    Is the goal with this to make certain web traffic is filtered when off-site or is there another reason?

    I think you'd be looking more at a profile on the ipad rather than any settings on the fortinet box.

    filtered when offsite would be the goal.

    There's a few different ways you can do this via a Fortinet.

    1. Create a VPN and send all traffic back to your Fortinet. This works but is a bit complex to setup + will put pressure on the Internet connectivity the Fortinet lives behind as all traffic goes to and from it for remote users.
    2. Setup and external proxy on the Fortinet and have the IP of this set to be the global proxy within IOS. This can do captive portal and also integrate with LDAP / FSSO for user based authentication.3
    3. Simply download Forticlient for IOS and install that as that does remote web filtering for IOS Free AntiVirus & Anti-Rootkit & Anti-Malware | Free Web Filtering | Free VPN | Free IPSec | Free FortiClient

    Good luck

    Dave
