Assigning the Azure IP address
- In the third step, FortiGate IP address assignment, you will configure static public IP addresses for FortiGate nodes A and B. If you click First public IP address resource name, you will see a preconfigured name, with Dynamic selected. Leave these as shown, as there is no need to click Create New unless you want to change the name.
To access the FortiGate-VMs' management GUI console or to connect by SSH, you need public addresses assigned to FortiGate nodes A and B. Static IP addresses are more convenient, as they are configured by default. Usually the default configuration is fine without modification.
- After confirmation, click OK.
- Repeat the process for node B, then click OK.
