Configuring Telemetry gateway IP lists

You can retrieve a configuration file from FortiClient to access the XML elements for the Telemetry gateway IP list.

If you are using FortiClient EMS (Enterprise Management Server), you can export a gateway IP list from FortiClient EMS. See the FortiClient EMS Administration Guide.

The Telemetry gateway IP list contains IP addresses for FortiGate and/or FortiClient EMS. FortiClient uses the Telemetry gateway IP list to connect FortiClient Telemetry to FortiGate or FortiClient EMS.

After you retrieve the configuration file, you can use an XML editor to locate the elements for the Telemetry gateway IP list and modify them.

To configure Telemetry gateway IP lists:
  1. In FortiClient, retrieve the configuration. See Retrieving FortiClient configuration files.
  2. Open the configuration file in an XML editor.
  3. Remove all elements, except the elements needed to configure the Telemetry gateway IP list. See Example XML of Telemetry gateway IP list.
  4. Add IP addresses to the configuration file by using an XML editor.

    When using only FortiGate for endpoint control, use the <fortigate> element to identify one or more IP addresses for FortiGate devices.

    When using FortiGate integrated with EMS, use the <fortigate> element to identify one or more IP addresses for FortiGate devices, and use the <notification_server> element to identify the IP address for EMS.

  5. Save the configuration file.
