Send Netflow traffic to collector in IPv6 7.2.1

Netflow traffic can be sent from the FortiGate to a collector using IPv6. Both the source and collector IP addresses can be IPv6 addresses.

When VDOMs are enabled, the source and collector IPv6 addresses can be configured globally or in individual VDOMs.

To set the Netflow collector and source IP addresses to IPv6 addresses:
config system netflow
    set collector-ip "2000:10:1:100::59"
    set source-ip "2000:10:1:100::9"
    set active-flow-timeout 60
    set template-tx-timeout 60
end
To confirm that the collector IP address is set to an IPv6 address on the FortiGate:
# diagnose test application sflowd 3
