how are you doing that?
ah ok...i must edit the config file with a text editor or what?
I'd imagine so. Notepad should suffice.
Notepad, Notepad++, Metapad, anything really. It's just a normal INI.
You can turn on GPU use if you have a GPU so FortiClient offloads some stuff to the GPU which makes it even faster, etc.. All there, in the INI.
the edit of the INI is absolutely confusing for me...probably nothing to do for an average user
I see just words words words and lines...like trees in the wood
LOL!! I wouldn't play in ini files unless you are a nerd, programmer, IT Guy or someone that has a history of playing in command line applications. But reading it line by line should make sense, it's absolutely the most basic form of scripting/batch coding. There are parameters in <> and end blocks in </>, pretty much like quoting on a forum.
But yeah, don't play if you haven't done this stuff before or at least have seen it before. Gamers should know all about ini editing.
Best friends forever. Personally, I think this is a rockstar combo.
FortiClient - Extensive Signature Antivirus, Anti-Exploit, Anti-Botnet, Anti-Bitcoin Miner, Web Filtration, Vulnerability Scanning, Dynamic Threat Detection.
Voodooshield - Anti-Exe, VT Scanner, (and whatever else VS is classified as)
Heimdal Pro - Module/Application Updater, Heuristic Traffic Scanner, DNS Scanner.
They also have matching shield icons.
Fortinet seems to have Application Firewall, how is it configurable and should I use other firewall management like WFC since I want completely lockdown?
Do you have info on INI file settings (a tutorial or hep file)? Sounds amazing tweakable.
Fortinet did well in the past against malware UR:S and core AV-signatures. Because Fortinet felt a bit heavy and did not have advanced features (like other free AV;s) it was not very popular on security forums. These enhancements are really interesting.
OK thx, but what settings can be tweaked in the ini file. Explanation and instruction of the settings in the ini file, not how to backup and restore the ini-file. I just installed Fortnet and exploit protection was disabled. So what setting to change in the ini file to enable it?
Interesting, I tested it a while back and I don't remember seeing an application firewall, just anti-virus and web security that was like a beefed up version of uBlock Origin, I might have to check it out again.
Click on the cog next to Realtime Protection Enabled and there's an option to enable exploit protection.
@Slyguy outlined the most relevant things in the INI here:
Video Review - FortiClient- An issue to be resolved
I just read somewhere in the forum mentioning it does.. Just installed and don't see the firewall.
Waiting for 'components' updating which is taking so longgg
Let us know what you find.
I tweaked the INI and trust me it's easy for anyone. You just work your way through the settings like it's a GUI. once you've done it a couple of times you know exactly where to scroll to. And if you backup the tweaked INI you'll only have to do it once. It really is just common sense once you're looking at the INI file. People who are not tech savvy could make a few backups of the original INI so they could practice.
Exactly! Make the changes once, put the INI on a USB stick and you are good to go.. Install FortiClient, go to settings, select 'Restore', highlight the config on the USB and presto, it's added in, all of your settings ready to go.
If you have a FortiGate it's even easier, you can load the config into the appliance. Then any FortiClient installed on your network grabs the full config and sets it up automatically.
