Fortigate 50B Remote Client VPN Setup

I am trying to setup a remote user VPN, and no matter what i do, the clients can connect but they cannot the internal network when doing so. I created phase1/phase 2, and assigned a DHCP of 192.168.4.x to remote users, and my internal lan subnet is 192.168.5.x. They are authenticated but cannot reach anything in the 5.x subnet. I created a firewall policy to allow traffic from the WAN to the Internal LAN, and also from 192.168.4.x to 192.168.5.x, not sure what else to do at this point

No familiar with Fortigate but you need a network translation rule to say that 192.168.4.xxx are on the same network as 192.168.5.xxx.

What rule have you created? What ports, protocols, etc. does it allow?

*network address translation (NAT)
Are you trying to complete a site-to-site VPN? Or a user dial-up VPN?
Can you post a screen shot of your policy setup?
Will You Be GDPR Compliant by 5/28/2018?

GDPR? That's a regulation for the European Union. But, if you collect data from customers or employees within the EU, then you need to know about GDPR and make sure your organization is compliant by May 2018. Check out our preparation checklist to make sure you're on track today!

Its a user dial up VPN.

I got it working, by turning off the IP-Sec VPN.
As far as I recall, Dialup IPSEC tunnels are created as a separate interface/zone.

i.e if the Phase1 of the dialup tunnel is called "DIALUP" then you must make a policy from the interface "DIALUP to LAN and vice versa.
