4. Troubleshooting

Fortigate SSLVPN Client troubleshooting:

 

·         When the wrong credentials are entered OR you are trying to connect to the SSL VPN from inside the AHS network, a Warning message comes up Saying “Unable to establish the VPN Connection. The VPN server may be unreachable. (-14)” The correct format for Name is <username> and Password is <pin><token code from FOB key> -- or <8-digit Token from Soft Token>.  Your PIN (Personal Identification Number) is numeric and between 4 and 8 digits in length.  Also please note that connecting to the SSL VPN is not possible when the laptop or mobile device is already connected to the AHS network.

 

 

·        

 

NOTE: If authentication issues persist, you can test that your Token is operational by logging into web page: https://token.albertahealthservices.ca ... upon successful logon you will see a message about successfully completing the authentication (and setting your pin if that was required). This is the only function of the page. Once you have tested the Token, please close the page.

 

Important: If you have tested your Token and it is functional, but FortiClient is still not connecting. Make sure your local Internet is connected then completely remove FortiClient from your computer, restart your computer, reinstall it and try to connect with FortiClient once again.

6. REMOTE DESKOP CONNECTION

Once you have connected FortiClient successfully, use this tool in combination with FortiClient in order to remotely access an AHS computer from your personal computer. For that you will need the target AHS Computer to be online and no user using it.

 

For Windows OS: Remote Desktop Connection (aka RDP) is a tool that is already part of Windows Operational System.

 

6.1 Search for “Remote” and click on the icon for it.

 

 

 

 

6.2 Type in the barcode (machine name) of your computer followed by healthy.bewell.ca or you can type in the IP address (ie. 10.117.6.xx) of the target machine.

 

6.3 Enter your AHS AD credentials in the format healthy\username and your password

 

 

6.4 If you get to this screen, you are already at the AHS computer sign-on prompt. This one you can enter again your username + password (AD password).

 

 

For MAC Computers: Remote Desktop Connection is not a tool that comes already in MAC computers. You will need to install it.
