Enable IoT background scanning 6.4.3

Internet of Things (IoT) background scanning is now disabled by default. A valid IoT contract is required to enable it.

When IoT scanning is enabled, FortiSwitch will query the FortiGuard IoT service for additional device information.

To enable IoT background scanning in the GUI:
  1. Go to WiFi & Switch Controller > FortiLink Interface.

  2. Enable IoT scanning.

  3. Click Apply.

To enable IoT background scanning in the CLI:
config system interface
    edit "internal11"
        set vdom "vdom1"
        set fortilink enable
        set ip 169.254.1.1 255.255.255.0
        set allowaccess ping fabric
        set type physical
        set lldp-reception enable
        set lldp-transmission enable
        set snmp-index 11
        set switch-controller-iot-scanning enable
        set lacp-mode static
    next
end
