Connecting FortiAP

  1. To edit the interface that will connect to the FortiAP (in the example, port 22), go to Network > Interfaces.

  2. Set Role to LAN and Addressing Mode to Manual. Set IP/Network Mask to a private IP address (in the example 10.10.200.1/255.255.255.0).

  3. Under Administrative Access, enable CAPWAP.

  4. Enable DHCP Server.

  5. Under Networked Devices, enable Device Detection.

  6. Connect the FortiAP unit to the interface.

  7. To view the list of managed FortiAPs, go to WiFi & Switch Controller > Managed FortiAPs. The newFortiAP appears in the list but it is grayed out because it is not authorized. If the FortiAP does not appear, wait a few minutes, then refresh the page.

    Select the FortiAP, and select Authorize.

  8. After a few minutes, select Refresh. The FortiGate shows the FortiAP as authorized.
