Currently all users must be given a LOCAL FORTIGATE USER in the MC-MAPS VDOM and added to the MAPS-SSL-VPN group. Menominee Schools plans to link VPN authentication to Active Directory in the near future.

TSL 1.1 and 1.2 must be enabled, otherwise the connection will fail at 40%. The setting for that in WIndows is under Internet Options > Advanced.
