Management

On the Management tab, you can remotely manage FortiGate and FortiWiFi devices that are connected to the FortiGate Cloud service.

To access the Management tab, select the desired device in Network Overview, then click Management.

When you access the Management tab for a new or newly factory reset device with no password configured, you must configure the device admin password to access the Management interface.

To remotely access a device:

Remote access is only available for a device that has Management enabled and the management tunnel is up.

  1. Click the Remote Access icon for the desired device.
  2. FortiGate Cloud displays a popup where you can provide the FortiGate web GUI port. The popup is prepopulated with the default values of 443 or the last updated port number from the device. If the port value in the popup is correct, click OK to remotely access the FortiGate. Otherwise, enter the correct value in the popup to remotely access the FortiGate from FortiGate Cloud.
  3. Click OK.

You must first enable the management tunnel on your device before you can see any management functions. On the device, run the following CLI commands:

config system central-management

set mode backup

set type fortiguard

end
