How to install Forti Client VPN on Centos

November 16, 2017

I modified little tutorial from here

Installed on CentOS 6.8 x86_64 using alien to convert to rpm. It required several i686 compatibility libraries not present by default on CentOS 6.8.

1. Install CentOS 6.8 x86_64
2. Install EPEL Repo

sudo yum install epel-release

3. Install Nux Desktop (apparently required to get alien)

sudo rpm -Uvh
yum update && yum install alien

Borrowed from:

4. Install missing libraries

sudo yum install gtk2-2.24.23-8.el6.i686 gdk-pixbuf2-2.24.1-6.el6_7.i686 glib2-2.28.8-5.el6.i686 glib2-2.28.8-5.el6.i686 libSM-1.2.1-2.el6.i686 libX11-1.6.3-2.el6.i686 libXinerama-1.1.3-2.1.el6.i686 libgcc-4.4.7-17.el6.i686

5. Convert .deb to .rpm

cd /path/to/deb
sudo alien –r  forticlient-sslvpn_4.4.2329-1_amd64.deb

6. Install .rpm

rpm -ivh forticlient-sslvpn-4.4.2329-2.x86_64.rpm


it works for me
