Traffic destined for the FortiGate itself, and not being passed through or dropped, is called local-in traffic. It can be from a variety of services, such as HTTPS for administrative access, or BGP for inter-router communication.

Local-in traffic is controlled by local-in policies. To enable viewing local-in policies in the GUI, go to System > Feature Visibility and enable Local In Policy.

The Policy & Objects > Local In Policy page shows a read-only list of the local policies, populated with default values, and values that are automatically enabled when the related service is enabled, for example, enabling BGP opens TCP port 179. For more information, see Local-in policies.
