What is VPN MFA

As of August 11th 2021, Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) is required to access the StFX VPN.  MFA for VPN is separate system from M365 MFA which is used to access office 365 accounts. 

What Methods are Available

There are only 2 methods of Authentication available

  1. Software Token - To use this you will need download the FortiToken app on your mobile device
  2. Hardware Token - If you do not have a hardware token one can be requested for your account

What else do i need to?

Once you have your method configued you will need the most recent version of FortiClient

Download latest FortiClient Software

If you prefer to use only one authenticator application for your M365 and MFA for VPN your microsoft account can be added into the FortiToken applications.
