Enabling updates through a web proxy

If the FortiManager system’s built-in FDS must connect to the FDN through a web (HTTP or HTTPS) proxy, you can specify the IP address and port of the proxy server.

If the proxy requires authentication, you can also specify a user name and password.

To enable updates to the FortiManager system through a proxy:
  1. Go to FortiGuard > Settings.
  2. If configuring a web proxy server to enable web and email filtering updates, expand FortiGuard Web Filter and Email Filter Settings.
  3. If configuring a web proxy to enable antivirus and IPS updates, expand FortiGuard Antivirus and IPS Settings.
  4. Toggle ON beside Use Web Proxy and enter the IP address and port number of the proxy.
  5. If the proxy requires authentication, enter the user name and password.
  6. Click Apply.

    If the FDN connection status is Disconnected, the FortiManager system is unable to connect through the web proxy.
