Dear John,

Output of nlogin is:

rancid at aohmonitoring01:~> nlogin <fortinet>
spawn ssh -c 3des -x -l monitoring <fortinet>
monitoring@<fortinet>'s password:
FGT50A3906508751 #
FGT50A3906508751 # Timeout
Connection to <fortinet> closed.
rancid at aohmonitoring01:~>

If seen a lot of discussion about fortinet and rancid and it seams
There are some patches around - but I was not able to find them :(
Probably one of the fellow collegues can guide me?!

Thanks in advance

i am not familiar with fortigate.  but, you probably want to start by verifying that nlogin works for the device, as suggested in the RANCID FAQ section 3.
