Administration Guide

General

Go to Scan Policy > General to view and configure the General Options.

The following options are available:

Upload malicious and suspicious file information to Sandbox community Cloud

Enable to upload malicious and suspicious file information to the Sandbox community Cloud. If enabled, the file checksum, tracer log, verdict, submitting device serial number, downloading URL, and original files are uploaded.

Submit suspicious URL to Fortinet WebFilter Service

Enable to submit malware downloading URL to the FortiGuard Web Filter Service.

Allow Virtual Machines to access external network through outgoing port3

Enable to allow Virtual Machines to access external network through the outgoing port3.

If the VM cannot access the outside network, a simulated network (SIMNET) will start by default. SIMNET provides responses of popular network services, like http where certain malware is expected. If the VM internet access is down, beside the down icon, SIMNET status is displayed. Clicking it will enter the VM network configuration page.

FortiSandbox VM accesses external network through port3. The next-hop gateway and DNS settings can be configured in Scan Policy > General > Allow Virtual Machines to access external network through outgoing port3.

 

Status

Port3 status to access the Internet.

 

Gateway

Enter the next hop gateway IP address.

 

Disable SIMNET if Virtual Machines are not able to access external network through outgoing port3

Enable to disable SIMNET when Virtual Machines are not able to access external network through the outgoing port3.

 

DNS

DNS server used by VM images when a file is scanned.

 

Use Proxy

Enable to use the proxy. Configure the Proxy Type, Server Name/IP, Port, Proxy Username, and Proxy Password.

When the proxy server is enabled, all the non UDP outgoing traffic started from Sandbox VM will be directed to the proxy server.

When a proxy server is used, if the proxy server type is not SOCKS, the system level DNS server is used. If the type is SOCKS5, users need to configure an external DNS server that port3 can access.

For other traffic started by FortiSandbox firmware, such as FortiGuard Distribution Network (FDN) upgrades, the configurations should be done under the Network menu.

 

Proxy Type

Select the proxy type from the drop-down list. The following options are available: 

  • HTTP Connect
  • HTTP Relay
  • SOCKS v4
  • SOCKS v5; requires DNS

UDP protocol is not supported.
