Configuring the connection with the RADIUS server

FortiMail uses RADIUS accounting records to combat spam and viruses originating from your network, reducing the likelihood that your public IP addresses will be blocklisted.

  1. Configure the FortiMail unit as an auxiliary RADIUS server on your RADIUS server.
  2. Ensure it sends the Calling-Station-ID and Framed-IP-Address attributes to the FortiMail unit.
  3. Determine whether your RADIUS server sends the Framed-IP-Address attribute value in network order (for example, 192.168.1.10) or host order (for example, 10.1.168.192).
  4. Verify that routing and firewall policies permit RADIUS accounting records to reach the FortiMail unit.
