EMS QuickStart Guide

Creating Telemetry gateway lists

You can create a Telemetry gateway list that contains IP addresses for one or multiple FortiGates. FortiClient searches for IP addresses in its subnet in the Telemetry gateway list and connects to the FortiGate in the list that is in the same subnet as the host system.

If FortiClient cannot find any FortiGates in its subnet, it attempts to connect to the first reachable FortiGate in the list, starting from the top. FortiClient maintains the list order as it was configured in the Telemetry gateway list.

  1. Go to Telemetry Gateway Lists > Manage Telemetry Gateway Lists.
  2. Click the Add button.
  3. Configure the following:

    Name

    Enter the list name.

    Comment

    Enter additional comments (optional).

    Connect to local subnets only

    Only allow connection to local subnets.

    Use connection key

    Enable the connection key endpoints can use to connect to FortiGates.

    Enter the connection key.
