FortiManager supports secured FortiGate update services

FortiManager supports FortiOS generating HTTPS rating requests and AV/IPS updates on port 443 through the Bind to IP Address option.

Prerequisites of the Bind to IP Address feature:

  • The FortiGate must be on the same subnet as the FortiManager interface IP.
  • This feature is only for FortiGate 443 requests. Non-443 requests still use interface IP. For example, FortiGate still uses 8890 for update or TCP 8888/UDP for Web Filter query.
  • Must configure with a different IP.
To enable secured FortiGate update services:
  1. Go to System Settings > Network.

  2. Select FortiGate Updates and specify the IP address in Bind to IP Address.
  3. Select Web Filtering and specify the IP address in Bind to IP Address
  4. Click Apply.
