Connect to the FortiGate-VM GUI
You connect to the FortiGate-VM GUI via a web browser by entering the IP address assigned to the port 1 interface (see Configure port 1) in the location field of the browser. HTTP and/or HTTPS access and administrative access must be enabled on the interface to ensure that you can connect to the GUI. If only HTTPS access is enabled, enter "https://" before the IP address.
|When you use HTTP rather than HTTPS to access the GUI, certain web browsers might display a warning that the connection is not private.|
On the FortiGate-VM GUI log-in screen, enter the default username "admin" and then select Login. A default password is not assigned to the admin user.
Fortinet strongly recommends that you configure a password for the admin user as soon as you log in to the FortiGate-VM GUI for the first time.
