Setting up management connections

When your FortiGate-7060E first starts up, the MGMT1 to MGMT4 interfaces of both of the FIMs are part of a static 802.3 aggregate interface with a default IP address of 192.168.1.99. On the GUI or CLI the 802.3 aggregate interface is named mgmt.

Example mgmt interface configuration

You can configure and manage your FortiGate-7060E by connecting an Ethernet cable to any of the MGMT1 - 4 interfaces of the FIM in slot 1 or slot 2 and logging into the GUI using HTTPS or the CLI using SSH. The default IP address is 192.168.1.99 and you can log in with the admin administrator account with no password.

Note For security reasons you should add a password to the admin account before connecting the chassis to your network.
