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:
- In FortiClient Console on the endpoint, go to the Compliance & Telemetry tab.
- 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.
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.
