Initial setup

Upon initial deployment, the FortiAuthenticator is configured to the following default settings:

Port 1 IP: 192.168.1.99

Port 1 Netmask: 255.255.255.0

Default Gateway: 192.168.1.1

These settings can be modified by configuring a PC to an address on the same subnet and accessing the GUI via https://192.168.1.99/. Alternatively, you can configure these settings using the CLI.

To configure basic settings using the CLI:
  1. Connect the management computer to the FortiAuthenticator using the supplied console cable.
  2. Log in to the FortiAuthenticator unit using the default credentials below:

    Username: admin

    Password: <blank>

    You will be prompted to change and confirm your new password.

  3. Configure the network settings as required, for example:

    config system interface

    edit port1

    set ip <ip-address>/<netmask>

    set allowaccess https ssh

    next

    end

    config router static

    edit 0

    set device port1

    set dst 0.0.0.0/0

    set gateway <ip-gateway>

    next

    end

    Substitute your own desired FortiAuthenticator IP address and default gateway. This will give you access to the GUI through the specified IP address.

For more information on FortiAuthenticator initial setup, see the FortiAuthenticator Administration Guide in the Fortinet Document Library.
