Not sure if Fortinet makes it impossible to find the FortiClient SSL VPN application for Mac OSX on purpose or not but it appears to be free for the simple client version so I wanted to provide a location to download the client easily. On Windows you can bring up Internet Explorer and make a SSL VPN connection easily but since IE is not available on OSX it is necessary to have the stand alone FortiClient SSL VPN application. Be careful if you are going to download the Fortinet FortiClient elsewhere as if it is anything other than the simple SSL VPN client it is really bloated.

The arp cache of the Fortinet 200A can be cleared by typing the below command into the console.
