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.
- Connect the management computer to the FortiAuthenticator using the supplied console cable.
- Log in to the FortiAuthenticator unit using the default credentials below:
You will be prompted to change and confirm your new password.
- Configure the network settings as required, for example:
config system interface
set ip <ip-address>/<netmask>
set allowaccess https ssh
config router static
set device port1
set dst 0.0.0.0/0
set gateway <ip-gateway>
Substitute your own desired FortiAuthenticator IP address and default gateway. This will give you access to the GUI through the specified IP address.
