Connecting to the FortiWeb-VM

  1. First we need to find the management IP address of FortiWeb. If you choose to use an existing Elastic IP, the Elastic IP you entered is the management IP of FortiWeb. If you choose to create a new Elastic IP, you need to search for the IP address created for you on the AWS Elastic IP console using the FortiWeb Elastic IP or Name you have specified in the template.
    Take note of the Elastic IP address.

  2. Open an HTTPS session using the Elastic IP address in your browser (https://<Elastic IP address>: 8443).

    You will see a certificate error message from your browser, which is normal because the default FortiWeb certificate is self-signed and not recognized by browsers. Proceed past this error. At a later time, you can upload a publicly signed certificate to avoid this error.

  3. Log in to the FortiWeb-VM with the default user name admin and the password you specified when configuring the parameters.
  4. You will now see the FortiWeb-VM dashboard. Depending on your license type, the information in the license widget on the dashboard may vary.
