You just bought a Fortigate? I want to tell you from the beginning GREAT PICK!

Much easier to use than the Cisco ASA and a more friendly GUI then ASDM.

So now you added your Fortigate(maybe 50B like in the pic) to the network and you do not know where to go next?


Here are the default settings for almost all of the Fortigate Firewall:





DHCP is enabled by default on the internal interface with the following scope: till

Default username: Admin

Default password: <none>


Now you can connect to the firewall with SSH on port 22 and go from there.

Hope you enjoy the Fortigates as much as i do.


See you in the next tutorial!
