To configure the RADIUS client:
  1. Add the FortiAuthenticator host record to your local DNS server.
    If you are using FortiGate as the DNS server, this can be set under Network > DNS Servers on FortiGate.
  2. Under System > Dashboard > Status, edit and set the hostname and FQDN for FortiAuthenticator so that it matches the DNS host record.
  3. In Authentication > RADIUS Service > Clients, add the wireless controller, in this example FortiGate, as a new RADIUS client.
    Enter the Name and IP/Hostname of the wireless controller, and create a Secret.
  4. Click OK.
