Configuring devices to use the built-in FDS

After enabling and configuring the FortiManager system’s built-in FDS, you can configure devices to use the built-in FDS by providing the FortiManager system’s IP address and configured port as their override server.

Devices are not required to be authorized by FortiManager in Device Manager to use the built-in FDS for FortiGuard updates and services.

Procedures for configuring devices to use the built-in FDS vary by device type. See the documentation for your device for more information.

If you are connecting a device to a FortiManager system’s built-in FDS, some types of updates, such as antivirus engine updates, require you to enable SSH and HTTPS Administrative Access on the network interface which will receive push updates. See Network for details.
