IPv6 support

FortiNAC has the ability to support IPv6 addresses by allowing IPv6 endstations (hosts, devices) to communicate with FortiNAC's Portal and Agents. The admin UI also supports both IPv4 and IPv6.

Network device management and discovery in Topology requires networking equipment to have an IPv4 address.

Polling L3 ( IP->MAC ) data for devices is supported from the following vendors/switches:

  • Cisco
  • Juniper EX Switches
  • HP ProCurve

Please contact Fortinet Support to request additional device support.

IPv6 hosts and devices can communicate with the FortiNAC via Portal and Agents. Both eth1 and eth0 support IPv4 and IPv6, enabling IPv6 hosts and devices to access the Portal. When a host or device uses IPv6, the IPv6 address is displayed in the Host View or Adapter View, in addition to any IPv4 addresses associated with the host or device. The FortiNAC admin UI can be accessed using the IPv6 address assigned to eth0.

Supported for IPv6

Not Supported for IPv6

Portal communication (eth1)

Device management in Topology (Creation/discovery of network devices)

Admin UI access (eth0)
