  1. On OCI, go to Core Infrastructure > Compute > Instances, and click the name of the FortiAuthenticator-VM instance that is running.
  2. Copy the Public IP Address and OCID.

  3. Connect to the public IP address using an SSH client.
    1. Log in with admin as the username and the OCID as the password.
    2. Using the CLI, add the public IP address to the allowed-hosts. For example:
