Appendix A - FortiGuard Distribution Servers (FDS)

In order for the FortiManager to request and retrieve updates from FDS, and for FortiManager to serve as a FDS, please configure the necessary settings on all devices between FortiManager and FDS, or between FortiManager and FortiGate devices based on the items listed below:

  • FortiManager accesses FDS for antivirus and attack updates through TCP/SSL port 443.
  • If there is a proxy server between FortiManager and FDS, FortiManager uses port 80 to communicate with the proxy server by default and connects to the proxy server using HTTP protocol.
  • If FortiManager manages a FortiGate device located behind a proxy server, the proxy server permits TCP/SSL traffic to pass through via port 443.
