I am using a fortigate 100 in remote location i need to configure fortigate client to connect up.

I have setup the settings in the fortigate 100 firewall and the fortigate client but I still can't connect.

Can anyone point me in the right direction for setup

I really need instructions for setting up the fortinet 100 firewall as well as the client

Ok, found out its due to two things, the client was brutal so I upgraded to the latest one which works great and the preshared key must be nine characters long which was also a problem
