The Ports View for configured devices that have been added to the Topology does not initially contain the current host information for each port. FortiNAC must go out to the device and read the current host information. This is typically done automatically based on the polling options configured for the device, but you can also poll the device manually.

  1. Click Network Devices > Topology.
  2. Expand the container where the device is located.
  3. Right-click the device and select Polling > L2 (Hosts) Information.

    FortiNAC reads the host information from the device and updates the Ports tab in the right pane. The Icons contains descriptions of the icons shown in the Ports view.
