ADC 5.3 - FDS Communication

    I could not find out how multiple ADCs will be able to have their communication to Fortiguard over a single Management, i.e. have no direct connection to fortiguard:

    For the following purposes:
    - Licensing
    - IPS, AV, VOS DB updates
    - possible Fortiguard queries
    - etc.

    Most other products run can make use of Fortimanager. But for ADC there is no manager that can do that?

    Also for WEB you can configure one of the WEB to be the proxy for the others to Fortiguard, but that also does not exist with ADC, right?

    Patrick,

    For closed-network deployment, you can look into Fortiguard override option to utilize FortiManager.

    config system fortiguard
    set override-server-status enable
    set override-server-address <ip-address>:8890
    end

    Dear Ferry,

    Many thanks.

    you mention port 8890, this is only for Fortiguard Queries, i.e. for ADC only for WebFilter Queries?

    But not for IPS, AV engine updates, or IPS, AV, Geo IP, IP Reputation DBs as well as not for firmware updates etc.

    I'm trying to build a complete list for ADC, ADC Manager, WEB, WEB Manager, for the list below of functions.


    PS: I found the option of this before but it never stated that you can go to fortimanager and especially not the port 8890.

    The admin handbook only mentions is provided by the fortinet service and support team.




    I'm building a list of functions and their necessary connections etc:

    Support Registration
    License
    Metering
    Firmware Update
    Monitoring
    Alerting
    Security Updates DB
    Security Updates Engine
    Security Queries (WF, AS, VOS)
    Fortiguard xxx
    Management
    SDNS
    Fortisandbox
    Fortisandbox Cloud
    Push
    Pull
    Fortianalyzer Cloud
