Administrative access

This is rather an ordinary consideration than AWS-specific to secure FortiGate itself as well as protect it by configuring allowed and restricted protocols and ports in corporate security scenes.

One example is to configure the local admin access to one of the FortiGate's local network interfaces. Log into the GUI, go to Network > Interfaces, then chose the desired port to configure under Administrative Access.

To configure general firewall policies to protect VMs in the nteworks, refer to (Use case) Setting up a Windows Server in the protected network or the FortiOS handbook for details.
