FortiAuthenticator-VM console access

To enable GUI access to the FortiAuthenticator-VM you must configure basic network settings of the FortiAuthenticator-VM in the vSphere Client Console tab.

To configure basic network settings in FortiAuthenticator-VM:
  1. In the Inventory list, select the FortiAuthenticator-VM that you deployed. In the Getting Started tab select Power on the virtual machine. Optionally, you can right-click the FortiAuthenticator-VM, and select Power > Power On.
  2. Select the Console tab.
    The Console window appears.
  3. At the FortiAuthenticator-VM login prompt enter the username admin and password. The default password is no password.
  4. The default Port1 IP address is set to 192.168.1.99/24. You can change this IP address with the following CLI command:

    config system interface

    edit port1

    set ip <ip-address>/<netmask>

    set allowaccess https ssh gui

    next

    end

    config router static

    edit 0

    set device port1

    set dst 0.0.0.0/0

    set gateway <ip-gateway>

    next

    end

    Caution

    FortiCloud currently does not support IPv6 for FortiAuthenticator-VM license validation. You must specify an IPv4 address in both the support portal and the port1 management interface.
