  3. To configure the interface on the FortiManager, connect to the FortiManager, go to System Settings > Network, select All Interfaces, and edit port 4.

  4. Set IP Address/Netmask to an internal IP address (in the example, 192.168.65.30/255.255.255.0).

  5. Select Routing Table and add a default route for port 4. Set Gateway to the IP address of port 16 on Edge.
