Configuring the second vNIC on the FortiGate
To configure the second vNIC on the FortiGate:
- After attaching the second vNIC to the FortiGate, ensure you reboot, then log into the FortiGate. Log into the GUI console and Go to Network > Interfaces. You now see two ports, but the second port is not configured with an IP address. Manually configure the same IP address specified on OCI.
- Select port2, then click Edit. Manually enter the IP address and netmask. Allow administrative access to PING, SSH, and so on as desired. Click OK.
You now have two network interfaces configured.
