Icons in FortiNAC represent different devices and users as they connect to and access the network. Host Icons are displayed in the Host View and the Topology on the Ports tab. System Icons are displayed in the Topology. Device Icons are displayed either in Hosts View, Profiled Devices, dashboard or Topology depending on where they are being managed. Host Icons in particular have many states.

Icons in FortiNAC represent different devices and users as they connect to and access the network. Host Icons are displayed in the Hosts View. Device Icons are displayed either in Hosts View or the Device Summary Panel on the dashboard. Host Icons in particular have many states.

To indicate the state of a user, a device or a host, the icons are modified slightly by superimposing an image on top, such as a red box to indicate that the item has been disabled. States can be cumulative. For example, you could see an "X" over a host icon. This indicates that the host has been disabled but is still online. The table below provides a legend for those states.
