Administration Guide

Defining your network services

Network services define the application layer protocols and port number on which your FortiWeb will listen for web traffic.

Policies must specify either a predefined or custom network service to define which traffic the policy will match. Exceptions include server policies whose Deployment Mode is Offline Protection.

Defining custom services

Server Objects > Service > Custom enables you to configure custom services.

Predefined services are available for standard IANA port numbers (https://www.iana.org/assignments/service-names-port-numbers/service-names-port-numbers.xml) for HTTP and HTTPS. For details, see Predefined services. If your virtual server will receive traffic on non-standard port numbers, however, you must define your custom service.

To configure a custom service
  1. Go to Server Objects > Service and select the Custom tab.
    To access this part of the web UI, your administrator’s account access profile must have Read and Write permission to items in the Server Policy Configuration category. For details, see Permissions.
  2. Click Create New.
  3. In Name, type a name that can be referenced by other parts of the configuration. The maximum length is 63 characters.
  4. In Port, type the port number of the service (by definition of HTTP and HTTPS, only TCP is available).
    The port number must be unique among your custom and predefined services. The valid range is from 0 to 65,535.
  5. Click OK.
  6. To use the custom service definition to define the listening port of a virtual server on the FortiWeb, select it as the HTTP Service or HTTPS Service when configuring a policy. For details, see Configuring an HTTP server policy.

Predefined services

Go to Server Objects > Service. The Predefined tab displays the list of predefined services.

Predefined services are according to standard IANA port numbers (https://www.iana.org/assignments/service-names-port-numbers/service-names-port-numbers.xml): TCP port 80 for HTTP and TCP port 443 for HTTPS.

To use the predefined service definition to define the listening port of a virtual server on the FortiWeb, select it as the HTTP Service or HTTPS Service when configuring a policy. For details, see Configuring an HTTP server policy.

To access this part of the web UI, your administrator’s account access profile must have Read permission to items in the Server Policy Configuration category. For details, see Permissions.
