Connecting to the FortiVoice LSG unit

After physically installing the FortiVoice LSG unit, you need to connect to its web-based manager to perform procedures in this guide.

To connect to the FortiVoice LSG web-based manager, review the following table and perform the procedure that applies to your scenario:

Scenario

Then

You are connecting to the unit for the first time.

Perform the steps in Connecting to the web-based manager of the FortiVoice LSG unit.

You have reset the configuration to its default state.

Perform the steps in Connecting to the web-based manager of the FortiVoice LSG unit.

You are a returning user that has completed the basic configuration of the unit.

Access the web-based manager using the IP address, administrative access protocol, administrator account, and password already configured, instead of the default settings.

  1. Start a web browser and enter the URL:
  2. https://<IP_address>/admin

    Where <IP_address> is the IP address of the FortiVoice LSG unit that you want to connect to.

  3. Enter the name and password associated with your account.
  4. Click Login.
  5. You have completed this procedure.

  6. Go to Configuring administrator and network settings to make sure that you configure the required settings.

Connecting to the web-based manager of the FortiVoice LSG unit

Prerequisites

To connect to the web-based manager of the FortiVoice LSG unit using its default settings, you must have the following hardware and software:

  • A computer with an RJ-45 Ethernet network port
  • One of the recommended web browsers: 
    • Microsoft Edge version 40 or 41
    • Microsoft Internet Explorer version 11
    • Mozilla Firefox version 52.7.2 ESR or 59
    • Google Chrome version 65
    • Apple Safari version 10 or 11
  • An Ethernet crossover cable
Procedure steps
  1. On your management computer, configure the Ethernet port with the static IP address 192.168.1.2 and a subnet mask of 255.255.255.0.
  2. Using the Ethernet crossover cable, connect the Ethernet port of the management computer to port1 of the FortiVoice LSG unit.
  3. Start your browser and enter the default URL https://192.168.1.99/admin.
  4. To support HTTPS authentication, the FortiVoice LSG unit ships with a self-signed security certificate, which it presents to users whenever they initiate an HTTPS connection to the FortiVoice LSG unit. When you connect, depending on your web browser and prior access of the FortiVoice LSG unit, your browser may display two security warnings related to this certificate:
  • The certificate is not automatically trusted because it is self-signed, rather than being signed by a valid certificate authority (CA). Self-signed certificates cannot be verified with a proper CA, and therefore might be fraudulent. You must manually indicate whether or not to trust the certificate.
  • The certificate may belong to another website. The common name (CN) field in the certificate, which usually contains the host name of the website, does not exactly match the URL you requested. This could indicate a server identity theft, but could also simply indicate that the certificate contains a domain name while you have entered an IP address. You must manually indicate whether this mismatch is normal or not.

Both warnings are normal for the default certificate.

  • Verify and accept the certificate, either permanently (the web browser will not display the self-signing warning again) or temporarily. You cannot log in until you accept the certificate. For details on accepting the certificate, see the documentation for your web browser.
  • In Name, enter admin.
  • Leave the Password field empty. (In its default state, there is no password for this account.)
  • Click Login.
  • With a successful login, the web-based manager appears.

    You have completed this procedure.

  • Go to Configuring administrator and network settings.
