Virtual IP related query

  • 1.  Virtual IP related query

    Posted May 18, 2020 11:57 AM

    I'm new to this community and also to Fortinet environment.
    I've created a Virtual IP with all the required details. There are several services attached in that Virtual IP.
    I've got a request from Application team concerned with this virtual ip to port forward one service on a particular port.
    I've tried but nothing works for me. Can anyone please guide me how to achieve this?

    The task requirement is:
    If a user tries to connect an application on port 1111 it should be forwarded to port 2222.

    Hi Faridul,
    Hope ur doing fine.
    As I mentioned earlier I've already created a VIP and Policy with 12 services attached to it. Other than these services there is an additional service already configured on the devices(Ex: which has to be redirected to port 3322. As it is not possible to configure the devices again(As the devices are in different locations) the Application Team requested this alternative and I already done this on Juniper SSG Firewall.
    So I hope it can be done on FortiGate as well.

    Hi Mansoor,
    Unable to retrieve your query/requirement.
    Can you please share the details of your requirement along with a topology.

    Or, you can share SSG config file to me (1-to-1) and will try to convert it to FGT config.

    Hi Faridul,

    Thanks for ur help.
    I've resolved the requirement by doing PAT on the VIP and everything is working as required.
