  2. In the Menu bar, click Configure.
  3. In the Navigation area, click MAC Access Control.
  4. Click Import.
  5. Add the MAC addresses. Separate each address with a comma. An import can include a maximum of 10,000 MAC addresses (records).
  6. Review the summary. If you want to make changes, click Back.
  7. To import the MAC addresses, click Submit.

    A dialog box displays a status message. Here is an example: Import 2 records successfully.

  8. To close the dialog box, click OK.
  9. When adding an SSID to an FortiAP network, make sure to select MAC Access Control.
