    Hello everybody,

    Actually i need to comunicate two host on the same vlan conected to the same firewall interface but trought its public IPs

    host 1: 192.168.0.1/24
    host 2: 192.168.0.2/24
    GW for both: 192.168.0.10


    gateway/firewall interface: 192.168.0.10/24

    public ip-host1:5.5.5.5
    public ip-host2:6.6.6.6

    i need that host1 comunicate with 6.6.6.6 and host2 comunicate to 5.5.5.5 and don't use its private IPs

    how this can be possible, all connected to the same fortigate?

    This seems rather unusual but you should be able to accomplish your goal with virtual IP's.

    1. Ensure you have 5.5.5.5 and 6.6.6.6 bound to a WAN interface
    2. Create a virtual IP for each public IP to private IP
    3. Create firewall policy allowing traffic.  Make sure you select your virtual IP objects for the destination.
