The command line interface (CLI) is an alternative to the web UI.
You can use either interface or both to configure the FortiWeb appliance. In the web UI, you use buttons, icons, and forms. In the CLI, you either type text commands or upload batches of commands from a text file, like a configuration script.
If you are new to FortiWeb, or if you are new to the CLI, this section can help you to become familiar with using it.
