DNS

To enable resolution of the FortiGuard network and other systems such as NTP servers, set your DNS to your local or ISP nameserver configuration via Network > DNS.

Time synchronization

FortiToken two-factor authentication uses a time-based algorithm to generate token PINs for use in the authentication process. It is essential that the time is accurate on the FortiAuthenticator system, therefore, NTP time synchronization is recommended. Change your settings to a local NTP server for accurate timing by going to Dashboard > Status and clicking the Edit button next to System Time in the System Information widget.
