Connecting the FortiSandbox

  1. Connect to the FortiSandbox.

  2. To edit port 1, which is used for communication between the FortiSandbox and the rest of the Security Fabric, go to Network > Interfaces.

  3. Set IP Address/Netmask to an internal IP address. In this example, the FortiSandbox connects to the same subnet as the FortiAnalyzer that you installed previously, using the IP address 192.168.65.20.

  4. Edit port 3. This port is used for outgoing communication by the virtual machines (VMs) running on the 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 the FortiSandbox is currently investigating.

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

  6. To add a static route, go to Network > System Routing. Set Gateway to the IP address of the FortiGate interface that port 1 connects to (in the example, 192.168.65.2).

  7. Connect to Edge.

  8. To configure the port that connects to port3 on the FortiSandbox (in the example, port13), go to Network > Interfaces. Set IP/Network Mask to an address on the same subnet as port 3 on the FortiSandbox (in the example, 192.168.179.2/255.255.255.0)

  9. Connect the FortiSandbox to the Security Fabric.
