Connecting FortiSandbox and Edge

  1. Connect to the FortiSandbox.
  2. Go to Network > Interfaces and edit port1.

    This port is used for communication between FortiSandbox and the rest of the Security Fabric.

  3. Set IP Address/Netmask to an internal IP address.

    In this example, FortiSandbox connects to the same subnet as the Security Fabric's FortiAnalyzer, using the IP address 192.168.65.20.

  4. Edit port3.
  5. This port is used for outgoing communication by virtual machines (VMs) running on FortiSandbox. It’s recommended that you connect this port to a dedicated interface on your FortiGate to protect the rest of the network from threats that FortiSandbox is currently investigating.

  6. Set IP Address/Netmask to an internal IP address (in this example, 192.168.179.10/255.255.255.0).

  7. Go to Network > System Routing to add a static route.

    Set Gateway to the IP address of the FortiGate interface that port 1 connects to (in the example, 192.168.65.2).

  8. Connect to Edge.
  9. Go to Network > Interfaces to configure the port that connects to port3 on the FortiSandbox (in this example, port13).

    Set IP/Network Mask to an address in the same subnet as port 3 on the FortiSandbox (in this example, 192.168.179.2/255.255.255.0).

  10. Connect the FortiSandbox to the Security Fabric.
