Deploying the FortiProxy-VM instance

  1. Go to Compute Engine > VM Instances and click CREATE INSTANCE.

  2. Configure the instance:

    1. In the Name field, enter the desired name. Select the desired zone and machine type.

    2. Under Boot disk, click Change.

    3. On the Custom images tab, select the newly created image.

    4. Change the boot disk type as needed, enter 10 for the Size, then click Select.

    5. Ensure the new image is selected then select Allow HTTPS traffic.

      You will access the FortiProxy management console using HTTPS. If you allocate multiple network interfaces to the FortiProxy, this is nullified at this stage. You can configure this later. See Configuring Google Cloud firewall rules.

    6. Click Networking. Two network interfaces will be specified, one on the public-facing side of the internet and the other facing a protected private network.

    7. Edit the first network interface. Assign a static IP address and under IP Forwarding select On. Configure other items as needed and click Done.

    8. Click Add network interface to add the second interface for the private subnet. If you click Network there will be the list of preconfigured networks. Choose the one located in the same region as you chose to deploy the instance and under External IP select None.

  3. After configuring all elements, click Create.

    After 15 to 30 minutes, the instance should be up and running.
