EMS QuickStart Guide

Connecting manually from FortiClient

Endpoint users can manually connect FortiClient Telemetry to FortiClient EMS by specifying the IP address for FortiClient EMS in FortiClient Console. This process is sometimes called registering FortiClient to FortiClient EMS.

To connect FortiClient Telemetry to FortiClient EMS:
  1. In FortiClient Console on the endpoint, go to the Compliance & Telemetry tab.
  2. In the FortiGate or EMS IP box, type the EMS IP address, and click Connect.

    FortiClient connects to FortiClient EMS.

For information about FortiClient, see the FortiClient Administration Guide.

The FortiClient Telemetry gateway port may be appended to the gateway list address on FortiClient and separated by a colon. When the port is not provided, FortiClient attempts to connect to the IP address given using the default port. The default connection port in FortiClient 5.2 is 8010 and in FortiClient 5.4 is 8013. By default, FortiClient EMS listens for connection on port 8013.

Note it is considered best practice to add endpoints using the method in Adding endpoints using an Active Directory domain server. Connecting FortiClient to FortiClient EMS manually is only recommended for troubleshooting purposes.
