Quick start

Quick start is simply a series of initial setup windows designed to help you get your FortiNAC program up and running as quickly as possible. The first time you log into FortiNAC the Quick Start window displays with a menu of steps to be completed in the left margin. These tasks represent the minimum setup to begin using your software. These tasks are not limited to setup and can be revisited at any time. For example, if you need to add a new Network Device, you might return to the Network Devices window within Setup.

Not all of the steps are required. For example, if you do not use a RADIUS Server for authentication, this step does not have to be completed.

To access Quick Start after the initial configuration select System > Quick Start. Once you are in Quick Start, use the menu on the left to select the task or click the Previous Step or Next Step buttons. On the Portal Configuration window an Apply button is displayed to save data. On other windows, such as the RADIUS Servers window, data is saved automatically as it is created. See the table below for a description of each step in the process and a link to additional information.

Note

Many of the quick start options can be accessed directly from other menus or views in FortiNAC.
