How to set up port forwarding quickly ? Services ? Virtual IPs ?

  • 1.  How to set up port forwarding quickly ? Services ? Virtual IPs ?

    Posted 10-21-2017 14:22

    I'm migrating from another brand of firewall router.  I have a large number of custom port forwards setup for internet exposed security cameras i.e. services defined and then port forwards defined i.e. forward this port to this internal IP address.

    What is involved in setting this up on Fortigate ?  Just defining a Service for each ?  And is there a quicker way to import a long list.....

    Open Start
    Open Settings
    Click Network & Internet / View your network properties
    Scroll down to the "Wi-Fi" section
    Look for the "Default gateway" heading
    The number to the right of the "Default gateway" heading is your router's address.
    In your preferred web browser, enter the default gateway number into the address bar and press ↵ Enter.
    Enter your username and password
    Wait for your router's settings page to load.

    Check this to fix router's problems: 192.168.0.1

    Hi Michael

    Make the first entry, save the configuration (text file) and search for the relevant parts. Now create a new file with just the additional entries you need.
    Now copy-paste the additional entries with puTTY (right-click) to the ssh console.

    For all CLI commands look at: http://cli.fortinet.com/
